Farm Girl Note “Corn Pick’in”

Posted by The Fuhrmanns on Aug-3-2015

An evening at our house…

It started just as dinner was finishing and dishes being cleared, Dad and Mom said that a neighbor had called and asked for us to come by and pick some corn in their patch. So after dishes were done and buckets gathered we went outside to load up.

But then a problem struck us. Sam had the van for work and we had our whole family (11 Fuhrmanns) and our cousins (3 of them) so we decided to get Josh’s truck and our car. It took some creativity and extra time, but soon everyone was crammed into the cab, car and the back of the pick up. When we arrived at the neighbors house we all climbed out and said hello and than guess what he said “Alrighty you guys just follow me the corn’s about a mile away” WHAT? We laughed and said “OK lets all see how fast we can load back up”

Now that’s a challenge! 14 people climbing and scrambling into 2 vehicles was definitely a sight but we did it and arrived safely at the corn patch. We all hopped out grabbed a bucket and started picking… several minutes later and lots of buckets full of corn later me and Sheila (my “corn picking buddy”) started walking back through the patch to the truck. Danny and Van Louis (our cousin) dashed by in a full fledged game of hide and seek and than we came upon John settled in the dirt murdering “bad beetles” with rocks :-)


Group picture.

Soon we had all the corn (and children) loaded and headed home hot and laughing. Oh and by the way the night was finished off with volleyball and soccer :-). Things are always way more fun when the whole family works together! Spending the precious time we have been given with each other is a wonderful thing.

John David

Farm Girl Note

On a fine, but hot, summer day I was nearly at the end of my hike to the hen house to do my evening chores. In one hand I had dog food (for the Great Pyrenees Guard Dog on post) and an egg basket, while the other hand was sometimes occupied by John David’s little hand.  He was more often diverted by a big cricket hopping in front of him or  a pretty flower… As I walked a long with the little blond head bouncing next to me I stopped to turn on the pump for the hens, in my momentary pause John scampered on to the hen house, “No harm” I thought as I kept going.

When I got to the hen house I fed and petted the dog, and also fed and watered the chickens.  I then looked around the house hastily for John but he was nowhere to be seen… as I hurried up to the chicken house door I saw a small boot disappearing through the small chicken door (the tiny one cut out for the chickens to use!). I got to the door and carefully opened it and there, proudly standing in the middle of the chicken house, with happy hens clucking around him, stood John with a huge smile spread across his face.  He reached up to me with a brown egg in his hand and as I looked at him he cheerfully sang “EGGS!” I caught him up in a big hug and then we finished collecting the other eggs “heggs” he says, and carried them home. As I went along I pondered on that little scene.

The thought came to me of how so many little kids and even adults do not know where their food comes from. Of course if you ask an adult where  milk or eggs came from they would say cows or chickens, but do they really know how those chickens live or what they are fed? I am very thankful for all that I know, but it is saddening and scary at how the industry has really been able to hide the truth behind faux happy stories and pretty pictures. We all know it’s not all glamor and fun out there in the world of industrial food production. There are some hidden secrets that we should know.

Now I am not a food freak, but I have been educated in the truth.  The Lord has given us amazing bodies and he has also given us the choice on how to take care of them!  I strive and hope to keep my body nourished and strong so that wherever God calls me I can go and serve Him. Keeping our bodies in a state of fitness and energy is necessary so we are equipped for life’s challenges!  I am so thankful for the good real nourishing food our family is blessed to raise.  I know it is helping us to all grow healthy and strong.

It is wonderful to know that our chores, all the sacrifices and hard work,  help so many other families become healthy and strong too.

“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ…” 1 Corinthians 5:20.   We are God’s lights to shine in the darkness.  Be strong and of good courage!  More important than being mighty in body is being mighty in spirit! Remember:

FRESH Chicken

John David and Josh unloading the chicks.


What’s so special about this chicken you may ask. Well let me answer… pasture raised chicken fed NO-SOY and Non-GMO grains! Here are a few differences those three things make in producing a quality super food!


Sadly you are not safe eating the meats that are available in the grocery stores. They try to make you satisfied with happy green labels that say all natural or cage free etc etc. But what really is under that label? What are you feeding your family?  Just say no to CAFO…Watch this to see.


Here are some disturbing facts that researchers have found:


  • Over 90 percent of all chicken meat and eggs sold in the US come from confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs)
  • One hidden health hazard of CAFO foods is food borne illness, which last year alone struck more than 19,000 out of a population of 48 million residents; 38 percent of illnesses were caused by salmonella
  • Drug-resistant infections from contaminated foods are also on the rise. In 2013, the Environmental Working Group found antibiotic-resistant bacteria in 39 percent of raw chicken parts… read more mercola.com

Outside during the winter it is quiet and still down here on the farm.  Everyone does their best to stay warm:) But inside it is quite a different thing! Everyone is bustling around with their daily duties and lessons.  We just started up music lessons again and are all thoroughly enjoying it! The house is now filled with music almost all the time with six children practicing! Winter is a wonderful time for us to do lots of book work! For the spring summer and fall months are always full of fun hard work learning lots outside and tending our flocks and herds:) Living on a farm has its ups and downs but at the end of the day, when you fall into you bed, you really feel like your day was profitable and you are always learning new lessons that will help all your life! Wherever you are and whatever you do there are always ups and downs in life. But the most important thing is to not worry and trust in the LORD!  Take each moment and cherish it!  Time flies and before you know it you will be in a different place.  Let’s live without regrets and  treasure the most important things:  God and People.  So be happy now and share the LOVE of  Christ to all!

New Year 2015

Our Father’s Farm and the Fuhrmann Family wish you a Happy New Year!

We are stocked with beef!

The beef that we are stocked with is not pure grass fed which means that they have had some feed in there life.


We strive to raise our beef humanly and natruelly the way God intends them to be raised. In the picture on the left Josh is moving the cows to fresh grass.

Not only delicious but medicinal!

This is a busy season full of colds, flus and more! People everywhere are coming down with different things… have you?…

 Stay healthy through flu season! 


Pasture raised chicken is one of the best ways to stay healthy this season! 


Be sure to order some chicken and after you have enjoyed it your favorite way be sure to keep the bones!


Put all the bones (after you have taken all the meat off) in a pot and cover the bones with water, then add a little salt and that is it!

If you would like you can add other things like, a little wine, an onion, some chicken feet, clean good egg shells etc. After atleat 45 minutes your broth is ready! You can just drink this flavorful delicious broth or make it into soups sauces and casseroles!

Make your new years order!

“Hello, just wanted to let you know that my brined Thanksgiving turkey was delicious! Out of 3 turkeys we served (the other 2 were only breasts)

 Mine was hands down the best!!! So tanks for your brine recipe and for raising such a delicious bird!”

-Satisfied Customer 2014

“We tried your turkey brine recipe on the turkey we cooked for thanksgiving and it was fantastic! It was the best tasting and moist turkey that I had ever cooked! So, hats off to you and thank you for the wonderful recipe that made the turkey very tasty!”

-Satisfied Customer 2014





Farm Girl Note:

I love the Christmas season! But it is so polluted with loud music, Santa and candy. What’s the real reason for Christmas?

There are many traditions Americans use to celebrate Christmas such as,

Giving Gifts

Eating special foods

Decorating with lights, greenery and red berries or ribbon…

Writing wish lists for Santa etc.

But what is the main reason? What is the true meaning of Christmas!

It’s celebrating Christ coming! Joy to the world Jesus is born!

It is Joy! This is the most exciting thing ever! Because the Lord was born and lived and died we can now have everlasting life! Jesus came and died for our sin! He died for me and you!

Joy! To the world!  Merry Christmas!

Farm Girl Note:


Boy! Down here on Our Father’s Farm we have been so busy! The mornings are always full of chores inside and out which include milking all 23 of our wonderful cows, cleaning everything up and putting up the milk.  We quickly get to the rest of the chores–tending the flock of about 200 laying hens, tending to four different flocks of chickens and turkeys and feeding milk to eight cute calves! Then, the rest of the days are full of whatever needs to be done–making butter, moving cows etc. This is a very, very busy time here on the farm but we are all enjoying it!  And we all hope that you are enjoying the fruits of our labor.
