Ramblings from our Summer Kitchen / welcome
Hello and welcome to our home; Lizzy Lane Farm,
Our goal is to provide you with top quality products, usable information and the inspiration for your family and home to help you live your simple, natural life.
From our family to yours….
Our natural and organic products are all made right here in our farmhouse summer kitchen. City folk would want to call it a studio, but our summer kitchen is more than that, it’s a place where we work, share ideas and a good picnic every now and then. It’s a place where the children have their own area to work and play, while the adults get some of our own work done. A place where the environment is calm, ideas & people can grow and be themselves. If not in the house this is where you will most likely find us spending family time.
Our hope is to provide you with the materials you need to craft your own natural and organic products your family needs, and if you don’t have the time we have done the hard part for you and they are ready to ship for you to enjoy, and share.
Who we are and want to become…
My name is Karyn and I’m a Mother, Wife and Grandmother. As a child I worked side by side with my Grandmother & Mother in the family gardens, becoming friends with each and every variety. Helped with the cooking, canning, sewing and caring for my younger sisters.
Over the years being self sufficient and self-reliant were daily events and today this continues here at the farm, but is becoming lost bits of knowledge in today’s world.
I still grown our own organic vegetables & meats and can up about 600 jars for our winter pantry. Our meals are made from natural ingredients and nothing would ever come from a box.
Dick grew up in a large loving country living family. They also grew gardens, canned for the winter pantry, logged with horses and lived a good hard working honest life with a family full of respect and love.
Mark, Brett, Daisy & Shaye are learning these traditions and values with their responsibilities on the farm. They care for the animals, do repairs and any other task asked of them.
Our generation is a dynamic, energetic, discerning and passionate team. If it’s not good enough for our family it’s not going to be offered to you and your family. Our family farm & on line store, Lizzy Lane Farm, continues this legacy & offers you the same commitment to family, friends, community instilled in us at an early age.
Our working farm now includes Sage and Joby Jingles- registered Haflinger horses, heritage breed Narragenset turkeys (one is a pet named Bubbles), heritage breed Delaware, Golden Comet and Black Java chickens (Fire Cracker is our rooster), adopted chickens, happy, comical ducks named Lucky & Ducky, barn kitties and the official farm greeter, a lazy, over privileged and much loved beagle named Dalton Walton.
So who was Lizzy Lane...
Lizzy Lane was a descendant of one of the original families to found our hometown back in the 1700’s. In her time the farm was prosperous with many vegetable, herb, fruit, flower gardens. She was a woman ahead of her time with a dedication to the natural methods of farming, cooking, and living becoming popular today, she loved and cared for her family, friends and community. It was not uncommon for any one to be walking by to be offered a pear from one of her well-loved pear trees.
She is one of my heroes, I admire her connection to and love of her family, nature and her free spirit to help whom ever and when ever she could.
