Harmony Acres Farm

Wynn and I recently had the fun of visiting a working family farm here in Western North Carolina.   Don’t you think it is fascinating to see how other families live and work?  I do-especially after leaving our “normal” suburban American, 2 salary lifestyle to follow the dreams God has written in our hearts.  Our lives have literally been turned upside down in the past year-I should write more about that, shouldn’t I?  Lately I have been feeling like a bird that was let out of its cage and the view is amazing from up here in the sky . . .

For now, let me introduce you to the beautiful Emmons family.  They run a CSA program and a handmade soap company {the Harmony Acres Soap Company } from their farm in Wilkes County, North Carolina.  

After my mother in law met Mrs. Emmons at a local farmers market, The lady of the house was kind to invite us to the farm for a visit and behind the scenes peak at how things are done . . . it was awesome.  The Emmons are the real deal-timeless, with 8 beautiful children like little blond stair steps. They grow acres of organic produce, raise organic chickens, harvest their own eggs . . . I could go on. 

There was nothing worldly about this family and it was a true breath of fresh air, especially when I learned that both husband and wife had grown up in urban environments and followed the Lord and their dreams to farm life in the country. 

When I exchanged emails with the family before our visit, the directions they provided said that I would recognize the house by “brick farmhouse, 2 brown cows, 1 goat.”  I loved this place before we even arrived.

During our visit we were able to see the area where they grow and harvest produce for their CSA program. 

Wynn met the animals and we chatted with the family about eating local and homeschooling-two things I have a growing interest in.   You can read more about life on the farm at their blog.  We were also able to see first-hand how their Harmony Acres Soap Company is organized and run. 

We also took home lots of goodies-soap and lotion.  Their products are seriously wonderful.  I picked out several bars of baby soap which I thought would be of special interest to all of my mommy-readers, and they are sitting here waiting for a good home.  What do you say we do a give-away? 

If you would like to win a free bar of {beautifully packaged} natural soap {which smells like heaven by the way}, simply “like” Harmony Acres on Facebook and leave me a comment here telling me that you did!  I will chose a winner at random before the end of the week. 

Thank you so much to the Emmons family for hosting us and letting us peak into your world!

  10. Farm looks lovely. It’s my dream to live on a farm. I liked them on Facebook. By the way I have a question if you don’t mind. How do you know or anyone knows that we’re following what God wants us to.Is it because everything falls in place that we know this is what God wants for us? Thanks..

  11. May I recommend the book “Educating the WholeHearted Child” by Clay and Sally Clarkson — an outstanding Christian homeschooling resource.

    Sally has a heart for moms. Her blog is http://www.itakejoy.com

    May the Lord bless you as you continue to want to please him in every decision that you make.
