Welcome to Steel Spoon Farm! I’m so glad you’re here and hope you find some inspiration in these little squares and stories.
I’m Jen and that handsome guy next to me is my husband Clayton. The name Steel Spoon comes from his job as a steel worker and our pet name for each other being “spoon” in place of the usual “babe” or “honey”. We’ve been together for 5 years, married for 2 of those, and already been through a whole lotta living in that short amount of time which has just brought us closer every step of the way.
Buying the farm I grew up on was a huge milestone in our 5 year plan and proof of the power of goal setting and manifesting. So many things came together at the right time and place to make this happen this year. The first and hardest step was just deciding that THIS was the year to do it!
I’ve been blogging on and off for years but never with any real direction. Now that we’re moved in and settling into life in what will be (better be!) our forever home, I feel a sense of peace and clarity that I’ve never felt before. When I’m scrolling through IG for myself, what inspires me the most are the accounts showing beautiful farmhouses and homesteads. I truly think seeing those images helped keep the dream of getting our own farm planted firmly in my mind even when it felt so far away, so I want to give that feeling back by sharing our own inspiring images and messages!
Here you will find photos from around our property, our menagerie of animals big and small, gardening, woodworking, our DIY projects to make this house our home, and everything else that comes with this ever changing farm life. I hope to inspire those who are on the hunt for their own farm, and make meaningful connections with others living the sweet farm life.
Thanks for being a part of our story!
