Welcome! I’m Jennifer!
Welcome to my blog, where I celebrate the art of slow living and the simple joys of country life. From our 275-acre farm in Ontario County, I like to share stories and the simple joys of country living with you.
Join me as I explore home-cooked meals and regional recipes, the rewarding process of raising small livestock, and the timeless tradition of canning and preserving our bountiful garden harvest.
I hope by sharing peeks into our daily life can inspire you to enjoy the little things more, slow down, and appreciate what matters.
