Hello! An Introductory Post

Artisan Meadows is a micro-farm located just outside Memphis, TN.   

My goal is self-sufficiency -- especially with our food.  My husband and I are in the process of raising and growing almost all that we eat.  We raise rabbits, sheep, pigs, chickens, and even bees.  Square foot gardening has caught our interest, so we grow a wide variety of vegetables too.  We even have a few fledgling fruit trees. 

In addition to the farming, I am a  multi-media artist.  Using wool from my sheep, I do spinning, weaving, and felting.  I also do a lot of work with polymer clay.

This blog chronicles both our growth as a micro-farm, and my work as an artist.  I hope to connect with like-minded people, offer whatever advice or help I can, and learn a lot from all of you in the process!


  1. Love all the wonderful pictures showing the step by step process! Can't wait to try it!Looking forward to more posts :)

    1. Yeah, the pictures don't lie, the farm is absolutly gorgeous. I would know, I go there a lot. The author of this blog is my aunt and I was actually there while a lot of the farm pictures were taken by my other aunt.
