Welcome to our Homestead

Welcome to Rocky Oak Homestead™

A quiet, peaceful sanctuary from the chaos of everyday living in a world on the brink of insanity! A place where we prepare for the worst, but hope for the best!

Things are changing

Mornings are getting a bit cooler and the days getting shorter here on the homestead. Preparations for fall are underway. Barns/sheds will be winterized, hay purchased, extra feed put up. Heat lights tested, replaced and ready to go in anticipation of a long, hard cold winter here. 


We too make sure we have things we need so we need not venture out in the ice/snow, cold & covid...lol. 


The leaves have begun their descent to the ground, lightly dancing in the gentle breeze as they fall...their season has come to an end of providing shade for us, and will now act as a ground cover to help keep delicate plants warm during the cold winter months...


We will soon be chased inside, tucked away quietly enjoying the slumber and slowness that winter seems to bring to the homestead. We will enjoy the winter scents of apple and pumpkin as I bake to bring a bit of comfort in those cold winter days. 


Until Next Time... The Homestead Lady
