My Official Launch! We are All Friends Here!

Giveaway entries are now closed.  A winner will be announced on Wednesday, November 23!   

Thank you so much for visiting!  I am so excited about the official launch of my blog, Our Simple Farm!  If you are looking to simplify your life and learn small farming/homesteading skills, than you’ve come to the right place.  If you are looking for a real spiritual journey, struggles and all, without the fluff , than you’ve come to the right place!  Do you want to learn how to make goat milk soap?  How about butchering a chicken?  Any entrepreneurial-minded folks out there?  I have so much to share!  Look around and stay awhile!  You are more than welcome here!

Check out these giveaway goodies and find out below how you can enter!

I make goat milk soaps and lotions, available at Our Simple Farm
 and am offering two free soap bars
and one 4 oz bottle of lotion! 
My wonderful friend, June, from A Wise Woman Builds Her Home and owner of Raising Homemakers has offered this encouraging and inspiring ebook.  Thank you so much, June!
This is such an endearing truth about motherhood!
This little book on homemade remedies is great for natural healing.  Very easy to understand with mostly common herbs!

I found these at Shipshewana, Indiana, an Amish community.  These are my three favorite words!

If you love vintage, then you will love these authentic Coke glasses!  There are six all together!

Need a little fall decor?  A charming country tin with scented pinecones makes for a great display!
I love the ideas in this apron book!  Very cute and pretty!
If you are in to scrapbooking, then this will get you started for your Christmas theme!

After using your fall decor above,  replace it with this lovely piece for your Christmas decorations!

How do you enter the drawing for these goodies?  Either “like” Our Simple Farm via Facebook, join my blog or subscribe via email.  Doing any of these will entitle you to receive the latest posts, deals, how-to videos and much, much more!  If you have already done any of these before this launch, simply leave a comment on which is your favorite giveaway item.  I look forward to “meeting” you!
