FARM CRUSH FRIDAY

This Friday’s Farm Crush is Think Little in southern Kentucky. The first generation farmers Jackson, Jordan, and their precious son, Avery inspire us to be better farmers and individuals daily. Farming and learning alongside their mentors on Hickory Lane, these farmers rock their CSA 50 weeks of the year and even donate a few shares to families in need! That my friends, is incredible! We have only met the farmers of Think Little through the interwebs, but consider them dear, old friends. They support us in so many ways, we are truly thankful for these guys!

FARM CRUSH FRIDAY

This Friday our Farm Crush is Old School Farm just 10 minutes from Nashville, TN, in the Bells Bend Community. We have been following the work of Old School Farm for a couple of years now and they always keeps our hearts warm and inspired. Founded in 2013, this non-profit farm not only produces some of the finest food in town, but they also employee individuals with intellectual disabilities.

FARM CRUSH FRIDAY

This Friday’s Farm Crush is the amazing Noble Springs Dairy in Tennessee. Located just 6 miles from downtown Franklin, Dustin and Justyne Noble work hard at restoring a farm that has been used as a family farm since the 17th century, making delicious goat cheeses, and loving all those sweet goats.

I first met the couple while working at The Turnip Truck, (East Nashville’s local natural food store) and fell in love with their passion, kindness, and DELICIOUS cheese. I highly recommend the Garlic Herb or Cherry Berry Chevre! If you enjoy a great love story, check out their website HERE to learn more about how they met. You can also follow the day to day happenings on the farm and see some beautiful pictures of their sweet baby goats by following them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

FARM CRUSH FRIDAY

Starting today, we will be highlight one of our favorite farms each Friday for the new Farm Crush Friday segment of our site. We are so thrilled to introduce y’all to all of our favorite farms!

For our first Farm Crush Friday  we would like to introduce you to the lovely folks over at Rough Draft Farmstead. We met the farmers of Rough Draft a couple of years ago through the amazing world of social media and have since become buds. Jesse and Hannah both left the big city to get back to their roots and met while interning on a farm in their hometown of Kentucky. They now live in an amazing off-grid cabin with their beautiful child, raising food and living each day to its fullest.

You can follow their blog HERE for some great tales of farming and off-grid living, to get a glimpse into the less beautiful parts of homesteading with their Messy Monday posts, or keep up with what their pup is into with Wendell Wednesday. Their pictures are beautiful and their words are filled with the passion for what they do. It is definitely worth it!

You can also keep up with Rough Draft Farmstead on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Stay tuned for next week’s crush!
