Black Sun Farm has been the product of my heart and soul for over five years now. I poured myself into building this small property into a working homestead. I can’t even tell you how many plants I’ve put into the ground here. And the birds I’ve raised for eggs and meat over the years were all spoiled rotten and given the best food and care possible.
Last weekend I found a new home for Cabbage, Onion, and the few ducks I had left. Feeding them all winter with virtually no return of eggs is simply unsustainable at this point. This year was hard for me—if you noticed, I started the year off strong with lots of Events, but I only went to a few markets and festivals over the season. I’ve been working my other farm job, growing food here for my family, and my business necessarily took a spot on the back burner of importance.
There are now no longer any farm animals on this farm. I still have three cats (one of whom is a great barn cat that I may need to find a home for soon as well,) but no more poultry. It’s a sad week for me. I’ll have to buy my eggs someplace else. The gardens produced a lot and my freezer is full, so at least I have that much.
If you’re still reading this far, THANK YOU for your support!
Whether or not I keep this place, or keep farming is very questionable right now. I will always be an Herbalist and a farmer at heart, but this business doesn’t make nearly enough to pay all my bills on its own.
Check out the links in my sidebar and below to see a few class offerings you can learn from any time. Also remember that I have lots of GARLIC available at $2/bulb if you want some for eating or planting.
People tell me constantly, “Keep farming, there are food shortages coming!” or “I’m so envious of all the things you know about and know how to do!”
Want to know the truth? I LOVE knowing how to grow and forage my own food. I LOVE knowing how to raise and slaughter my own animals for meat. I love knowing all I know about medicinal plants, nutrition, and keeping the body healthy.
But LOVE does not equal money. And I need money to survive.
So if you want to keep me going please seriously check out the things I sell through my website and Etsy store.
Also: I spent all of 2022 making foraging videos on TikTok. Why don’t you follow me and start learning a few things for free?
Heart Health is Vital!
Keeping your heart healthy is about more than just supporting an organ. Yes, you can’t live without your actual physical heart. It pumps blood throughout your entire body and is the powerhouse of your system. Herbs like Hawthorn, Shepherd’s Purse, and Rose can help heart and circulation health on a physical level. But what about your emotional heart?
Women have mostly been interested in my Rose Elixir: a special blend of rose hips, rose petals, brandy, and honey infused over many months. A few drops of this helps heal your heartache over a loved one (whether that be a death or a relationship.) I only have a couple of bottles left, so Contact Me if you want some.
But for men? Whether you are a man or know a man in your life who has suffered heartache over and over, or is sick of the ghosting and frustration involved in Online Dating, there’s little help for you. Every self-help or coaching program I’ve seen online claims to teach a man how to catch a woman or how to get into her pants as if sex will solve all his problems.
I promise you this: it won’t. Men have emotional needs too! One of my closest friends is a man who has had a lot of life experience with relationships and can show you how to find, meet, attract, and date a quality woman for a real romantic relationship that could make you happier than you’ve ever been before.
He learned his lessons from the School of Hard Knocks… working at Chippendale’s and then becoming a bartender in Hollywood for 14 years!
