Family and Farming

What is it like to live on a farm?

How does a small family farm work?

This blog will tell you, along with sharing a heritage farm recipe with every post.

Michael Pollan said, “Don’t eat anything your great-great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.” Those are words we should all live by! So if you need minimal-fuss thrifty recipes with healthy whole food ingredients based on a time when everyone cooked at home, take a look at this site!  Here’s a quick recipe link.

There will be recipes from as far back as the early 1900’s. The recipes that you forgot to ask Grandma for, are illustrated by Nancy Kula, a nationally award winning high school art teacher who taught in Grant Wood Country, home to Grant Wood, painter of the most famous piece of American art, American Gothic.

Nancy’s mother, Lila, an accomplished writer who won many national writing contests will also share essays and poems about this and that.

This is love from the Midwest. Love from Iowa.
