Sundays are a day of reflection for most. A chance to reset for the coming work week ahead. So this weekend we have decided to hit the reset button on and focus our attention on our motivation for getting ECORASTER in to the hands of landscapers and architects around the world. Climate change is a growing concern and the impact it is making on our earth is at the core of our motivation to provide a sustainable ground solution to our clients and our earth! How will climate change impact you and your home in the coming months and years ahead? . . . . #ecoraster #ecogrid #resinbound #resinboundsurfacing #talkresin #alidp #madeincanada #ecofriendly #environmentallyfriendly #earthfriendly #savetheplanet #albertalandscaping #bclandscaping #albertafarming #albertafarm #beautifulbritishcolumbia #bcisbeautiful #earthmoving #landscapersofinstagram #gogreen #permeablepaving #houzz #houzzcanada #hgtvcanada #permeable #sustainable #environmentalsustainability #versatility #recycledplastic #climatechange

Our early frost set my mind into autumn weeks ago, but it’s nice to finally be able to fully embrace it! — While others in our province have seen snow the past few days, we’ve been enjoying a very uncharacteristic week of clouds and rain. I think this is the first time ALL YEAR we’ve had more than a day without sunshine, and it’s making me realize how solar dependant I am lol! Props to all the growers and gardeners who work in this wetness, it has me stuck in slug mode! — This coming week I get to work on a floral installation for some dear pals’ wedding, and we’ll also be tilling the flower field, hosting a private workshop, starting wreaths, and continuing work on making November’s business course as valuable to our participants as possible. Still lots of work ahead, and this little slug will get her buns back in gear asap, but for now I’m taking a cozy quiet Sunday. The forecast calls for sunshine tomorrow 😉🌞🍂 — #flowerfarm #fallcolors #fallpalette #rainydays #albertafarm #cozydays

24mm of rain in the last 24hrs here in Vancouver! Starting off our weekend with an educational moment on the effects climate change is having in our own neighbor hood: summer droughts followed by severe rain are the new norm... an increase up to 11 per cent projected by 2050 and 20 per cent by 2080. This poses a threat to not only pipe infrastructure but also a much greater risk of landslides in mountain areas.
The growing season is officially over @redfoxfarms when the carrots and onions are harvested. Bring on the spicy pickled carrots!!! #yyc #calgary #alberta #albertafarm #goose #chickens #chicken #farm #farming #freerange #country #countryliving #freerange #cute #hobbyfarm #yycfarmer

Treat time with some of the gang!! Scraps are their favourite and I appreciate it so much! I love that they enjoy everything we don’t use. Sometimes I steal stuff that isn’t even bad from the fridge just because they are so precious and deserve all the treats🍉🌽🥕🥦🍞
What is your favourite farm animal? . I am partial to the 2 milk cows but pigs are a close second. . If we were to add a new species to the farm what should it be and why? . . . #armstrongacres #farmanimals #farm #cowsofig #holisticmanagement #farming #cattle #alwayslearning #albertafarm

Being Canadian means accepting the second blast of winter before the first official day of fall. Trying desperately to find a positive here...so will happily accept the abundance of moisture for the plants before freeze up. . . #whatseasonisit #winterround2 #notfallyet #changeofseasons #farmfreshflorals #flowerfarmer #albertafarm #another4 ”andcounting

I really can’t say enough about what an asset @kendrable has been this season. When she first approached me about helping on the farm, I eagerly agreed. Knowing her work ethic from our time spent as coworkers at @cjsw , I knew she was a take-no-prisoners DO-ER, which is exactly what a first year farm needs. I made room in my teeny budget and hired her. — No matter what task I’ve handed to her, even when it was something neither of us had any idea how to execute, she never once said “I can’t”. Every job and problem has been met with thoughtfulness and ingenuity. She’s run full speed with me for months, and now that my work has turned more towards spreadsheets, I feel so fortunate to have her towing the line as we close our “outside” season. — Because this farm is an “all in” endeavour for me, I can’t stress enough the importance of good hired help. And if they also happen to be a super pal, all the better! I have ten more days of Kendra 😢, and at this point I honestly can’t imagine the farm without her. Here she’s pictured pulling landscape fabric from next year’s flower field, prepping it for tilling next week. I can’t wait to coax all the pretties up with her next season. Thank you lady 🌸❤️❤️❤️🌸 — #womenwhofarm #womenswork #farmhelp #albertafarm #flowerfarm #firstyearfarm #smallfarm

The difference between silica sand dried blooms and silica gel dried blooms is pretty amazing. The sand preserves them almost perfectly 😍. I’ll be investing in a more substantial dried bloom set up for next year, the creative possibilities for these babes are endless! — And of course, old fashioned hang-dried blooms are pretty sweet too ☺️🌸❤️. — #flowerfarm #localblooms #localflowers #driedflowers #dahlia #eveline #winterflowers #winterprojects #albertafarm
Meet the chickens at @happiness_by_the_acre Farm! 💛 . In the spring we embarked on a crazy chicken raising journey. 26 tiny yellow fluff balls arrived in a box in the mail. Seriously. The postman brought the box to the door and said, “here’s your chicks.” . We kept them in a brooder in our guest room. It was so enjoyable to hear their little peeps in the house. . Our chickens are laying hens. Every week was a learning experience. Every week some new health or social concern popped up among the chicks. I nursed them, isolated them, cuddled them, and sang to them. . In the end, we lost one to an injury. And it was no easy task to end their life, but it made me realize I could take care of them fully, from beginning to end. . At the start of the summer, we loaded up our Subaru & moved the pullets to the farm and their mobile coop. . It’s been such a pleasure to watch these girls grow into beautiful hens. And now, to collect their perfect eggs 😍 Just call me #crazychickenlady . . #raisingchickens #babychicks #isabrown #albertafarm #yycgrowers #happinesschicks #happinessbytheacre #farmfresheggs #farmeggs #pastureraised #freerangechickens #cuddlingchickens #chickenlady
Drama on the farm, it’s way better than tv! Tonight I’m watching My very own version of the Bachelor! He started with 66 to choose from and is now down to 3 but Sweetie seems to be a favourite. The suspense is killing me! . I wonder if Clay’s bull, Bo Dangles will be upset when Sweetie has a calf from another bull next couple of weeks? Maybe he won’t know? Stay tuned every Tuesday night lol 🤣 . . . #armstrongacres #realliferealityshow #realityshow #reallife #cows #love #speckledpark #farm #albertafarm #milkcow #farmdrama #thebatchelor #reallifebatchelor

Hiya! It’s Sarah from @happiness_by_the_acre again 👋🏻 . Thought you’d like to meet the cows! . This was our very first summer with cattle on the farm. We’ve been working to turn our fields {previously grain crop} back into pasture. And this year was the year to finally host cattle! . We teamed up with a local rancher to host part of his herd of beef cattle. 48 heifers, 49 calves, and 2 bulls have been calling our farm home. . We use an intensive grazing method, moving the herd every day to fresh grass. This incredibly friendly group of cows were very trustful & we got to spend a lot of time in the herd. Big bonds were made by each of us. . Our son Sam even named one of the calves, who didn’t have a tag or name yet. That’s him there with Sweetie Pie. Yep, Sweetie Pie. And she lives up to her name, cuddling and following us around. . For me, working with the cattle was the most rewarding part of the year & I’m already missing them like crazy now that I’m back in the city, mostly. . . #albertafarm #albertacattle #grassfedcows #pastureraised #yycgrowers #happinesscows #happinessbytheacre #cattlewomen #cattlework #intensivegrazing #mobgrazing #albertalife #farmkids #farmlife #alberta #didsbury

A small sea of Dusty Miller. I’ve been waiting to see if it would get much taller, but it seems like a bushy 12” - 16” is the best it’s going to do. It’s been extremely cold tolerant and dries well, so today it’s all coming out for winter wreaths. Grown in a low tunnel, I bet we could keep this going until October ✨🌱🍂✨ — #flowerfarm #flowerdrying #foliage #winterfoliage #dustymiller #marketgarden #marketfarming #albertafarm #smallfarm
The IG Takeover continues... one of the best times this summer on the @happiness_by_the_acre Farm? Being hosts for Alberta Open Farm Days!!! . It was our first year participating in @openfarmdays and it was a blast having the farm open to the public! We had self-guided garden tours, guided pasture tours, scavenger hunts & activities for the kiddos, u-pick flowers, beekeeping demos from @mobhoney , and the grand opening of our Farm Store! . It took a lot of work to pull off, but we can’t wait to do it again next year! We met so many interesting folks, from near & far. Thanks to any of you who popped by that day! . And if you’ve never taken in the Open Farm Days experience, I highly recommend it. Over 150 farms across Alberta open up their gates to share their local food production story! You learn a ton & meet your local farmers. . . 📷 credit: @stuffscottshot . #yycgrowers #happinessbytheacre #albertafarmdays #abfarmdays #openfarmdays #albertafarm #localfood #supportlocalfarmers #yycfood #alberta #didsbury #supportlocalyyc #smallfarm #familyfarm #marketgarden #localfarmers #knowyourfarmer

Although @happiness_by_the_acre is a small farm, we realized last year, that we really needed help running it. This growing season, we have been so lucky to have Lachlan working with us full time! . He’s our first official farm employee, a student at @olds.college , a local Calgarian (ya, he went to Bowness High) & an encyclopaedia of all things nature! It’s been great to learn from him & hopefully we’re teaching him a bit about the business of market gardening. . Lachlan keeps his own bees, grows a variety of flowers, fruits & veggies, tans his own hides & has a crafty side too! . He’s all about using his hands & learning traditional skills. . Sam spent a lot of time picking his brain about Jurassic Park, Star Wars, crossbows, & bugs. So now he is his best friend 😉 . We seriously could not have gotten through this year of cattle, chicken, veggies, flowers, farm store, concussions, without Lachlan. Thanks, man! .

The IG Takeover continues... Meet your farmers! 💚🧡💛 . Hiya again from @happiness_by_the_acre farm! Just wanted to take a minute to introduce each of us. . First off, I’m Sarah. Farm wife, mama, crafty chic, cattle-woman-in-training. My favourite parts of the farm are the flowers & livestock. You can follow more of my adventures on @bubblegumsassy . . Next up, Marcus, who is the brains & soul behind the farm. He loves to grow things & has a passion for developing a diverse, healthy ecosystem on our farm. We call him bossman, which he hates, but it’s true. He runs much of the show. . And lastly, our sweet son Sam. He’s 6 1/2 now {can’t forget that 1/2 part}. He loves dinos, nature collecting, cuddling calves, and reading. I’m biased, but Sam is definitely growing into such a neat guy! And we believe all his experiences on the farm will make him an even better person. . We’ve been a part of YYC Growers since the early days & it’s been amazing to meet all the other members over the years! . . #yycgrowers #albertafarm #albertafarmers #happinessbytheacre #yycblogger #yycfamilies #yycliving #calgarians #albertans #albertalife #albertagirl #farmfamily #farmwife #farmher #womenwhofarm #familyfarm #meetyourfarmer #knowyourfarmer #meetmemonday #yyc #calgary
We’re ready for harvesting here in #alberta 👨‍🌾. These will be at you table soon. Did you know that Canada produces one of the best semolina flour in the world?
Farm life is not exactly simple life. At @happiness_by_the_acre we live a bit of a complicated life, splitting our time between our life & family in #YYC and the farm & livestock near Didsbury. . Today, I only just finished daily chores as the sun set because we were actually in Calgary all weekend. But there was eggs to collect, chickens to feed & cuddle, cows to get water to {our water system went down in the freeze last week}, pipes & hose to patch, etc. . It can feel like a strange, hard balance, city life vs farm life, but we try to remember that we are pretty darn lucky. Trying to see it as best of both worlds {instead of the troubles of each}. For now, splitting our time between both places is what needs to happen for our family. . Can anyone else relate to that complicated work/life integration thing? Or even splitting your efforts between multiple dreams? . . #happinessbytheacre #yycgrowers #albertafarm #farmlife #realfarmlife #smallfarm #familyfarm #citygirlginecountry #yycblogger #yycfood #farmfresheggs #freerangeeggs #pastureraised #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #farmwife #farmerswife #farmher #womenwhofarm #worklifeintegration #farmchores #alberta #didsbury #yycliving
Sarah here again from @happiness_by_the_acre 👋🏻 Thought I’d give you some backstory to our farmland. . We purchased it, after years of dreaming of starting a farm, in 2012. And it sat mostly untouched by us for the first couple years. It was just bare farmland. No roads, no fencing, no power... We leased it to a local grain farmer to keep the property in use, until we sorted out what to do. . In 2016 & 2017, a ton of infrastructure went in! Perimeter & cross fencing, a road onto the property, a huge dugout, a well for drinking water, power lines and we broke ground on a simple farmhouse. . During this time we also moved our entire market garden business to the farm & gave up our urban farm plots. . In 2017, we spent our first full summer living on the farm. Two cats, our son Sam and Marcus & I squished into a trailer and setup seasonal life & work. . It was an amazing experience! Hard, but great. . This past summer, our farmhouse was finished so we could occupy it and we continued work on the market garden, plus adding in cattle & chickens. A corral and more gates & fencing was put in. . Our house is as “net zero” as we could afford to build & all our decisions on what & how to build continues to be guided by a holistic management system. . We’re here to live alongside the land & build up the health of this ecosystem. There’s things we need to do that, but we’re also trying for low impact farming practices. It can be a tricky balance. And we learn every week from others. . Thanks to everyone who’s helped us build this farm up so far. It’s taken crews & a lot of trust & learning from everyone! . . #happinessbytheacre #yycgrowers #farmland #buildingafarm #yycliving #yycblogger #alberta #albertalife #albertafarm #holisticmanagement #smallfarm #knowyourfarmer #familyfarm #farmlife #farming #marketgarden #marketgardening #intensivegrazing #youngfarmers

Hiya!! Welcome to our IG takeover. This is Sarah from @happiness_by_the_acre farm and it’s my pleasure to be hanging out here in this space for the next few days! . Our small family farm is located just north of Calgary between Carstairs & Didsbury. My husband Marcus & I are far from traditional farm folks though. Our veggie growing business started in the city through urban farming over 7 years ago. The last few years, we’ve been working hard to move everything & start a rural farm from scratch. No joke. . As you can imagine, it’s been no small feat! . Our farm biz currently encompasses a market garden, with veggies, herbs & cut flowers, pastureland where we custom graze cattle, and a small flock of chickens who just started laying eggs a month ago! We also have a cute farm store on site featuring Alberta made products. . Hope you enjoy learning more about us over the next few days! . . 📷 credit: @jenandrussphotography . #yycgrowers #yycfood #albertafarm #smallfarm #happinessbytheacre #meetyourfarmer #knowyourfarmer #familyfarm #yycblogger #yycliving #yycnow #alberta #didsbury #carstairs #yycfamilies #supportlocalfarmers #intensivegrazinv #holisticmanagement #youngfarmers #farmfamily #yyc #calgary
Apparently Friday was a really good day for me to just stay home. Honey is now sporting a new “sock” . In the five years I have owned her at least she had the courtesy to wait until she was at home to get hurt so I can keep an eye on her. Not to be outdone, as I am dressing Honeys wound, Gunner decides to twist his leg through the fence. One horse bleeding, the other losing his marbles. Fortunately for us, he settled down when I came to pull his foot out and took off without any injury.

Just a little winter feeding in September. #cows #albertafarm #feedinginseptember #snowcows #snow #farmlife
Beautiful Godetia (aka Clarkia amoena) has proved amazingly cold-tolerant this past week. They were a surprise all-round, actually, as we direct seeded them into one of our roughest beds (a former mechanic’s yard, lots of oil and metal in the ground) and essentially forgot about them until the blooms appeared in July. Long-stemmed, long lasting, and great foliage too. I’ll be seeking out more colours and giving them a bit more attention next year 🌸❤️🌸 — #clarkia #godetia #flowerfarm #coolflowers #albertaflowers #albertafarm #frostresistant

It’s Canadian Flowers Week! It reminds Canadians we do indeed grow wonderful flowers here at home, and to support these locally grown flowers! A big shout out to all the flower farmers across the country who grow for the local market! And another to those who appreciate what we bring to life! Support local, slow flowers!!! Buying in season blooms is a wonderful way to enjoy flowers and follow the progression of the year. Of course in here in Alberta, we have jumped right into the cold weather early (as usual) so I’ve only got photos of our flowers to share (but photos are why we’re all on IG, right?!), plus the dream of next season’s blooms by announcing the opportunity to sign up for our Flower CSA/ Bouquet Subscription. A simple, hassle free way to get yourself local blooms! Details to come, but feel free to PM anytime to save your spot! #canadianflowersweek #slowflowers #supportlocal #supportyourlocalfarmer #albertagrown #albertafarm #grownnotflown #farmerflorist #localflowers #flowercsa #buyinseason #seasonalflowers #nopesticides #organicmethods #environmentallyfriendly #freshandbeautiful #dahlia #autumnarrangement #romanticflowers #ilovelocal #flowerfarm #flowerfarmer
Happy Frosty Friday! I was really hoping to construct a flower arch on our photo booth this weekend for #canadianflowersweek but the weather is just not conducive. With highs of only 2 degrees, the flowers will freeze. But I’m thinking we will do the installation next weekend and host our flower bar U Pick...stay tuned for details. . . #frostyflowers #frozenflowers #septembersnow #albertaweather #sunflower #farmfreshflorals #gardentovase #upickflowers #flowerfarmer #albertafarm #seasonsnotoveryet
Guess it’s time for the obligatory September in Alberta photo... Glad we were able to harvest the majority of the blooms but there was still a huge loss of sunflowers, many of which were just days away from blooming. It’s a sad reality of farming in Zone 3. Hoping that all farmers in the area were able to get most of their crops off or can recover most of what is cut when it warms up next week. . . #farmingreality #snowinseptember #mothernatureisqueen #farmfreshflorals #flowerfarmer #albertafarm #notoveryet
Beercan Chicken Casserole🍺🐓 . First off, let's talk about that chicken🤨 What normally takes under an hour, took me over 3! The weather completely fucked me, and I was constantly battling to keep the flames going at a lower temp without them completely going out🚫 . Had to finished it off at a higher temp (so I could finally go to bed!), and ended up burning the skin a bit, but it was still delicious. If you remember, I brined it in pickle juice and some other goodies overnight, so it was super flavorful and juicy! Ha. Juicy💦 . Anyways, last night I layered all that leftover chicken in the bottom of this casserole dish, and then topped it with a mixture of broccoli, shredded carrot, onion, mushrooms, green onion, and alfredo sauce. Threw on some parmesan and shredded cheese, and baked it at 400 just until bubbly and browned!🔥🤤 . . . . . . . . . . . #ketorecipes #ketoleftovers #leftovers #easyketo #ketocasserole #beercanchicken #picklebrinedchicken #cookingwithkels #lowcarb #casseroleseason #local #albertafarm #ABmeat #supportlocal #farmtotable #bbqchicken #repurposed
