About Everything

Thanks for visiting A Farmish Kind of Life!  As I say on my podcast, I like to talk about “homesteading stuff, and life stuff, and everything in between.”

About Me:

I’m Amy: farm girl, author, and podcaster. Equal parts sweet and sass, I’m on a mission to save my corner of the world with good words and good food. I enjoy pie, old fashioneds, a good summer storm, and being barefoot. 

About the Farm:

Clucky Dickens Farm is a five acre hobby farm in Central Minnesota, and we’ve been here since 2011. We raise (or have raised) chickens, ducks, pheasants, turkeys, pigs, goats, and horses. We have many large gardens, a lovely raspberry patch, and grapevines.


About the Site:

There is a lot information about homesteading here, but you can also check out my deep thoughts about life by clicking on the  Itty Bitty Thoughts  menu tab. 

I also have a weekly podcast which you can subscribe to on all the major podcast players, or you can find links to every episode here on the site at the podcast tab.

You can also check out the books I’ve written (or what book I’m working on next!) under the My Books tab.

Occasionally you will see affiliate links being used on A Farmish Kind of Life. It costs nothing extra for you to click on these links. If you do click on one of these links and purchase an item, I may receive a small fee. If you’re looking for more information about this, you can visit our disclosure and privacy pages.

I do NOT accept guest posts.

You can follow our adventures here at the site, sign up for my weekly email newsletter, or find A Farmish Kind of Life on social media. You can also email me with questions, concerns, ideas, or your very best pie recipe, at [email protected], and I promise to get back to you after chores are done.

    • An email newsletter is next on my list to tackle. What kinds of things would you be interested in seeing in a newsletter? Thanks for asking!

  • I’m pinning you to my new blog board so I don’t lose track of you. Anyone who has a pig chasing story is someone I want to visit more often.

    • Aw, thanks! It’s funny how many not-funny-at-the-time-but-totally-hilarious-afterwards stories you get when you are on a farm. 🙂

  • Loving your response to the previous comment! It’s SO true, the stuff that can nearly leave one in tears in-the-moment can border on hysterical after the fact! (From a kindred soul on a small “farm” in Eastern SD)

  • Hi Amy, I am excited to have found your site. I am wondering what you might know about food dehydration and what might be the best one to buy. Thanks in advance.

    • I have a few different dehydrators but do not use them often enough to make a recommendation. Definitely something I should look more into in the coming year, yes? Thanks for the reminder!

  • Amy, Amy, Amy- I am listening to Don’t Be A Slave To The Simple Life right now- awesome podcast!!! Awesome! Simply awesome. Thank you for being you and sharing this with us. Love it.
