Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

Thanksgiving Feast

I love feasts, I love the food and shared warmth and merriment. Every year, 4 to 6 weeks before the feasts I make a menu for each and then I make a shopping list for the menus. I keep the shopping lists with me and anytime I can or see something on sale that I need for the feasts I pick it up. That way I can afford a grand feast a little at a time.

I make most things from scratch so buying for a feast adds to the pantry as well :)
