© 2008, the award-winning blog where Farmgirl Susan shares stories & photos of her crazy country life on 240 remote Missouri acres - and lambing season is finally in full swing.


  1. Beautiful little lambs - you sound exhausted but maybe it is getting a little warmer in your part of the world - as always thanks for sharing. I have missed our birthing season a tiny bit and we are discussing(not sure that is the right word since I cry a little) getting rid of pretty much all our goats - expense is now higher than the tax break.I cheer myself by knowing I'll have Susuan's vicarious babies!

  2. I can't imagine what it must be like on your farm right now. We only had two ewes have lambs this year, and we were still a wreck. Though it was our first time with lambs, so nervousness was a big part of it. You're a lot calmer and more cheerful (at least on-screen!) than I would be. You should write a book--"Zen and the Art of Lambing."

  3. So adorable! I just found your blog and love it. I too live in rural Missouri and am getting a couple of Dexter cattle and some sheep this week. Fun living the dream, isn't it. Sick of the rain, though. Your photography is great. Thanks for it.

  4. Do you still have your llamas???

  5. oh my gosh, I just want to hug them!

  6. I just found your blog the other day while I was looking for a bread recipe. I found your Oatmeal Toasting Bread and made it on Sat. We had company so it's gone already! I loved it, so I'm making another batch today. I just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing it. I'm also enjoying perusing your blog. One question - I'm new to bread making and am wondering why you mix in "old" dough - what is it's purpose over not using any "old" dough at all?

  7. Susan, You are killing me with the cute! wraps arms around monitor

    Suzanne, if I may step into the breach (not the birth kind), the old dough gives bread better flavor because it has had extra time to develop its flavor. Have you poked around A Year in Bread at all? It's a bread-baking site where Susan and I write, along with Kevin of Seriously Good. You will find some interesting and useful information over there. Plus, lots of good recipes!


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!
