Scratch feed is what you'll find here at the coop! (Did you think I was talking about chicken feed?;) )We try our best to make everything from scratch. We take it one day at a time as we add new recipes to our ever growing list of things made at home. Many, if not most of our recipes our non dairy. Due to milk allergies in our coop we try to make
Baking and/or cooking from scratch is a fun and an educational challenge. We started a few years ago by choosing some of our favorite store bought foods and recreating them at home. Some are winners and some are not, but we'll keep trying! Regardless of the failures nothing goes to waste. There's always someone in the barnyard ready to try some scratch feed! Most of our recipes are things that we whip up ourselves, (through trial and error) unless otherwise stated, then we give credit where credit is due!
We hope that our site encourages you to get out in the fresh air n' sunshine, and scratch up a few ingredients for some of your favorite foods and get creating!
Start by choosing one thing at a time. Don't overwhelm yourself. We started with bread. Once we felt comfortable with bread making we branched out to crackers and then homemade soups, muffins, cookies, (soon we'll be trying candy bars!), donuts, brownies, rolls, jelly, jam, applesauce, fruit roll ups, marshmallows and on, and on. We have not yet posted about everything as we have recently just started our blogging adventure. We will post about as many recipes as we can as our busy day allows.
It's a very rewarding adventure and one you will not regret!
Happy free ranging!
