{about}

 

I am Alicia Jones, a born and raised city girl that married a farmer and moved to the country.  I love wearing high heels and find myself tromping through the field to help feed the chickens while wearing them way too often. This city girl is still in transition.  Here is the good, the bad, and the cow-pies of my journey into the farm life. Hope you enjoy the adventure as much as I do!

    Ned Ludd is fantastic.
    The protk and chicken from Afton Feild Farm was truly mouth watering. The staff were a delight.

    I was wondering, where/how did you get your logo design? I’m looking for someone/someplace to design one for our little farm. Thanks!

    I popped over to see your website. What a delight. I grew up on the farm and now live in the big city.

    Where are you located? I don’t recognize that breed of cattle.

      We are located in Corvallis Oregon. You said that you grew up on ‘the’ farm- do you mean this land that we are living on now or just that you lived on a farm? The type of cattle we purchased are over 50% Red Devon. The people we purchased the cattle from had some other breeds earlier in their operation but were working on a full Red Devon herd. We aren’t exactly sure of the other breeds. Hope that helps. Thanks for checking out the website and blog!

    Wow! Your blog is way too cute. I am an OSU student and believe you or/and your husband are coming to talk to our class tomorrow, so I was looking through your postings and am very excited to hear more about the farm life. I am a city girl myself and think it’s amazing you get to experience this totally different world. Also, on a separate note, what camera did you use to take all those pictures? They’re absolutely beautiful!

      Brittany,
      Thank you for your nice comments about my blog! I have fun with it. Hope that you enjoyed our presentation to your class last week. We had a good time.
      The camera I used for all the ‘re-post’ posts was actually my friends professional Canon camera. I think it was a 3 series. For everything else I just use my point-and-shoot canon; nothing fancy. I am saving for a nice camera though ;) Hope that helps.

    Alicia-
    There’s something wrong with the farm website. I think you’ve been hacked. Everything I clicked on became an ad for drugs.

    I think people who do things like that should be hung upside down over the manure pile.

    • 11.23.11 4:15 PM

      Thanks for letting me know! I’ll tell our website gal and see if she can hack it out… no pun intended ;) If we catch them, the PIG manure pile is the first place I’m taking them! :)

      Hi Michelle! It has been really fun to share my life with everyone {who wants to read} I am definitely learning a lot; and actually mainly about myself. I’ve also really enjoyed ‘staying in touch’ by reading your posts on Facebook :) I hope that there might be a chance when we could meet up in person for coffee or lunch or something. I’m up in Portland for deliveries and various other things, so if it looks like I might have a free minute, I’ll FB you and see if you’re free :)

    Hi Alicia from snowy Boston,
    Forget your to-do lists for now…remember baby steps. A nice magazine, latte, and
    a yummy pastry and enjoy some quality time with you. All the best…Lynne

      You are too right, Lynne! :) I’ve been practicing that, little by little each day. I always can use the reminder {and permission} though ;)
