on the farm & a giveaway

Back home in Indiana I had trouble disconnecting from the internet. Between schoolwork and work I was always online at home or on campus. I would have to drive to the middle of nowhere to NOT have access. Now, living here in Wisconsin way out in the country with mostly non techie people, I have to drive OUT of the middle of nowhere to access the internet. When I first moved here there was something refreshing about being disconnected and spending so much time outside. But now I feel too disconnected and I’m having a hard time keeping up with the projects I had hoped to spend the summer accomplishing. So here I am weeks later finally posting again :)

The farm where I WWOOF is about twenty minutes from Lake Michigan and is amongst some of the most idyllic places I’ve ever been. With my first visit back in March I felt so in place here. Between the location and the people I absolutely love this place! Here’s a glimpse of the farm.

For an organic vegetable farm there are so many animals!

So how about a giveaway? Artisana and Ruth’s Foods sent me these samples to share. I’ve used Artisana many time and would recommend their products over any other nut butters. I had never tried Chia Goodness by Ruth’s Foods, but it was really good! Their cereals make for a quick and easy breakfast.

To enter tell me what you look forward to the most about summer. It can be anything from a specific vacation spot to the weather or eating watermelon. The winner will be announced at the end of July.

  1. Summertime = Beach time! yay! :)

    Thanks for the great giveaway, Hannah. I know how refreshing it can be to be disconnected from the internet, but you do tend to lose touch after a long while…

    I pray that the Lord would continue to bless your time up on the farm.

    With love,

  2. What a lovely giveaway, I love Artisana’s almond butter and would love the opportunity to try something new.
    Though the summers are dreadfully hot where Though summers are dreadfully hot here, which makes appreciating the season difficult there are thing about summer not to be rivaled in any other season – breathtaking sunsets and clear blue skies, the deep indescribable colors of the sky during a monsoon, long afternoon swims with brother and trips back to my old hometown are things I most look forward to in the summer.

  3. What I look forward to most this summer? Spending time with family and seeing our garden grow!

    I look forward to spending lots of time with friends and family over delicious food, and warm nights outside!

  5. I look forward to my summer chemistry class being over (one more week!) so I do some more mountain biking and hiking!

  6. I look forward to our trip out west to visit with our children and 4 grandchildren and spending time in the mountains with them, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

  7. I love the clear blue skies that go on forever in Summer. The openness creates the feeling for me that the sky’s the limit, and it is indeed limitless.

  9. Thanks for the neat giveaway!

    I look forward to more time with family and friends, and a good conference to go to!

  10. I look forward to our annual family reunion. It’s the only time I get to see everyone because they’re so spread out around the country and we have so much fun…like we’re still little kids and we were never apart. Plus it’s always in a supercool place with lots to do and see. Cheers! :)

  11. I’m glad to see new posts from you :) I’m glad all is well! Summer is an amazing season! I live in Texas, so the weather can be blistering, but quite enjoyable with a little sunscreen and a cold beverage. I’m looking forward most to my mission trip in Mexico! I fly out this coming Wednesday! I’m excited to see what God is going to do through myself and other missionaries. Afterwards, I shall be visiting Sea World in San Diego! FUNNN :)

  12. I think I look forward to the weather, the get-togethers, and the harvesting of fruit. ;) Lovely pictures of the farm! There’s just nothing like farm life, really. You work hard, sleep well and eat well! It’s wonderful!

  13. Watermelon is definitely a summer highlight! I love having a houseful of people over and talking/laughing over delicious summery fruits.

    Thanks for the fun giveaway and the pictures from your trip; it looks like you had a marvelous time. :)

  14. There are countless things I look forward to come Summer…
    The Beach
    The Springs
    Wearing Flip Flops (wait… I wear those all the time)
    Summer Storms
    And this year, the arrival of our little one :)

    Thanks for having the giveaway! Love the picture of the cat. Pretty kitty :)

  15. This summer I’m looking forward to taking and completing piano teacher training, harvesting from our produce farm, and attending a friend’s wedding in August.
    Summers in general hold the joys of:
    picking fresh fruits and veggies,
    summer wear( flip-flops, t-shirts, calf skimming skirts, sunglasses :),
    flowers and butterflies,
    the summer night sky,
    hearing night sounds through open windows,
    beautiful green everywhere!
    Thanks for the giveaway and the adorable pictures of the farm!

  16. In summer, I enjoy a change of schedule, beautiful flowers, fresh treats like corn on the cob, watermelon, & our wild black raspberries (which, unfortunately dried up in the drought before they ripened this year.)

  17. Looking forward to my sister moving in with me this August, peaches and sweet corn, time off to write, and the feeling of sunshine on the skin.
    (It was wonderful meeting you at the farm last week. Thanks for the delicious coconut ice cream! Wishing you all good things!)

  18. beautiful photos! love the little piggie.
    the thing i look forward to most about summer is harvesting from the gardens. i also really love the flowers, of course ;)
