Did you cast your votes for the Food Blog Awards yet? I'm honored that Farmgirl Fare is up for Best Food Blog--Rural (and that so many of you have voted for me--thank you). Click here to see all the categories and nominees (and to discover some fantastic food blogs). Voting ends tomorrow night!


  1. The vote looks pretty solid!

    Are you planning to attend the blog awards ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria?

    (Donkeys allowed?)

  2. Have you begun the auditions for Whitey's sidekick as yet? About the blogs - one additional kudo is that your blogs NEVER have a negative aspect - you talk about real life as you live it and spread around kind words. Having gone to other sites during this voting thing - apparently you are indeed as special as we all think! Good on you, Susan - our mums were right when they said "can't say anything nice - don't blog" or something along those lines. Have a wonderful week - we are starting goat birthing season so praying that icy front doesn't dip down here to Texas!

  3. I love it when you post chicken pictures!

    I, too, am glad for your blog, Susan. Thanks for bringing sunshine to our lives...even when sad things happen on the farm.

  4. OOoo, looks like someone has packed on some winter weight!

    Bwuahahahaha! :)

  5. I am always happy to see a chicken pic!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
