A brief technical note: Today I officially started hosting Farmgirl Fare on my own domain,, and unfortunately there's a little hiccup. If you're using Internet Explorer, for now you'll need to go to and not just to get here. All links should still work fine (but now people should stop mistakenly thinking my blog is called Foodie Farmgirl). Of course if you're staring at a godaddy page right now and wondering why the heck you're not at the farm, this notice isn't doing you any good. Update: Rats. It's happening in Firefox now, too. Seem for now you need that www no matter what. Thanks for your patience and understanding. Sunday Update: Hooves crossed, I think I've got it fixed!

©, the perplexing but amusing foodie farm blog where Joe says maybe Bear's tongue just itches, and I love going back and seeing what was happening on the farm at this time a year ago, or two years ago, or even five years ago. (I can't believe I've been blogging for over five years.) Always something different, yet always something the same. And for those of you concerned, there's nothing wrong with Franny's front leg; she just has it set at an odd angle, probably because she's trying to decide whether she should get up and flee from these two.


  1. You came thru just fine on Safari this evening where I thoroughly enjoyed the sacked out dog. Thanks for your blog,

  2. Fine on Firefox.

    What wonderful dogs these are!

  3. Your animals make me smile and I love coming to your blog. Most of my family has passed and I'm still working outside the home so I only have 1 dog and 2 cats. I love watching them. They have all been together now for 9+ years and chase each other and lay around the house comfortably. Enjoy each and every precious day with those oh so cute animals of yours.
    Best to you!

  4. Hi there, you just need to update your DNS records to fix it so it works without the www. It's not browser dependent (more likely a lagtime in DNS updates which is why it works for some). I don't know who your host is, but I can try to help you fix it if you like.


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!
