FROM THE FARM
Around here, we value knowing where our food comes from. We can be confident that our plants grow in a healthy way with no chemicals or pesticides introduced during the process. Our bees are only treated with natural (non-chemical) methods and our chickens’ free range our 17 acres foraging for all the bugs they can find.
FOR THE HOME
We value the process of making things by hand. Contrary to what big businesses tell us, the method while creating/making things matters! We want to ensure that we are living and creating with intention, rather than carelessness.
I love how the seasons change in North Alabama. The winters are cold enough to let me dig in to my winter clothes I brought here with me from Alaska, but not too snowy. The spring is lush and green with perfect temperatures. Jeans and t-shirts are my fave! The summer is bountiful and full of growth. The color green is everywhere and the late sunsets and warm evenings are perfect for star gazing and porch sitting. Fall is my favorite. As the temperatures cool off and the busy of the summer slows down, the holidays approach and we prepare to focus on generosity and rest.
This time of year always makes me reflect on how blessed and full of goodness our year has been. With the rhythm of the seasons, our focus and products ebb and flow in tandem with the temperatures. Check out our seasonal events!

When I told Sheryl (my aunt whom I am collaborating with for the Fine Foods Unrefined cook book) that I wanted to develop a home made rustic tomato soup recipe, her first response was “That is going to be alllll you, because I don’t like tomatoes.” lol So, I will
“The honey from Five Oaks Farm is the best I’ve ever tasted! I’ve never been a big fan of honey. Although I knew it was a healthier alternative to sugar, I couldn’t bring myself to use it often since I disliked the flavor. That all changed when Jenni suggested I try their honey. I highly recommend giving it a taste!”
