I was born and raised 20 minutes from Boston, MA. At the age of 17, I was diagnosed with Anxiety. My personal experience with the prescribed medication was NOT POSITIVE. So I decided to find better way. I didn't know it at the time but, that was the BEGINNING for me! I have been โ€œFINDING A BETTER WAYโ€ in all areas in my life ever since. Better ways of how to create a modern homestead affordably, and a better way to provide my family with healthy foods, and soโ€ฆ.. much MORE!

At Lumnah Acres we hope our experiences can help guide you to find YOUR BETTER WAY! Please join us in sharing our journey with you, let us be a guide to Modern Homesteading, Self-Sufficiency, and FREEDOM for you!

    Good morning

    Hope sister Fern had two doelings a week early. They are so adorable.

    • Tim Brown

      @steve griffiths You typed wtf. If you had an un-offensive meaning you just might want to share it with the class.

    • steve griffiths

      @Tim Brown if you have kids then, as in our house it means what the flip as in what the flipping heck is that?

    • Chi4Ever

      @Kate McPherson this is the way I was brought up learning it too.

    • Gail Elwood

      @Kate McPherson “The terms “Nanny” (female) and “Billy” (male) to differentiate the sexes are in general disfavor in “official” goat circles.” (a quote from a goatie page.)

    • Kate McPherson

      @Gail Elwood Iโ€™m just interested in the goats. I find them cute, cuddly, and wonderful. I love to watch them play and find them relaxing. The baby goats can make a sad day a happy one.

  • Omar Zakaria

    Gooooood morning Lumnahโ€™s, God Bless, and Happy Birthday for Gina.

  • Anna R

    Morning Lumnahs, from Jamaica awaiting another tropical deppression this week,so guessing it will be travelling up your coast.
    Love all your animal and building projects. Your channel is a perfect how to for any carpentary apprentice.
    Gina, what a star and Blessing you are
    ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿน๐Ÿน๐ŸŽ‚ Happy Birthday!!

    • Lumnah Acres

      Good morning Jamacia. Stay safe

    • Anna R

      @Lumnah Acres Thanks Lumnah, feeling safe here. 30.c average with cloudy sun and breeze. We need the rain,our property is on limestone(ancient coral bed) only 4 mtrs above sea level so any rain dissapears quickly ,we have to buy in soil. Goats galore are free graizing along our main road. Being fattened up for Christmas curry,Haha!

    • Fรกtima Seguro

      Good morning from Portugal! Watching your videos every day, love it. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น

  • Forrest Gump

    Good morning! Happy birthday Gina! My favorite homemade soup is navy beans cooked with ham hocks, with onions celery and carrots, cooked until it’s super thick and poured over cornbread like my mom used to make it. I also like split peas and ham, creamy tomato bisque, beef with mixed veggies and rice or barley soup and of course homemade chicken noodle with homemade noodles.

  • Jim Purl

    Like seeing how the goats love Olivia!

  • C. Ruf

    Good morning. I think your “pig mobile” is in need of a little maintenance or TLC… Aldo…you mentioned you were going to disclose your next big project about a week and a half ago. Any plans with that?

  • Glenn Walsh

    This is Safety Sally dropping by to remind everyone to please keep all radial arteries free and clear of the nail gun. Thanks. 11:01

  • Tim Griffith

    When you find a girl willing to clean the chicken coop, she’s definitely a keeper. Happy birthday Gina.

  • Thane Walton

    For the life of me, I do not understand why you do not put eavetrough on your buildings. I can see dry rot starting at the bottom of your wall boards. Small investment to save your building walls.

    • lawrence willard

      Probably gutters.

    • Thane Walton

      @Rob Westley Gutters. In this case, if you notice the blackening of the outside wall boards is caused by water. This quickly turns to dry rot!!

    • Randy Lewenza

      @Thane Walton You are right . Would last longer and look nicer ..

    • Tony Grimes

      @Thane Walton If you put a gutter on the barn you would have to remove it before winter as the weight of snow they get would probably pull it off!!!

    • Thane Walton

      @Tony Grimes – I don’t think so Tony. I live in Nova Scotia, and have lived in different spots within Canada, and not once have I seen eavestroughs pulled off by the weight of the snow. And we do get lots of snow here.

  • Larry Schmitt

    Good Morning, we had a eggs like that a couple of days ago. I figured the hen must of been standing when she laid on the pile. Your new barn is looking great! Have a Fantastic Day ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ!

  • Des Buckle

    Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Gina, have a wonderful Day being well looked after by Hubby ๐Ÿ™‚ well after you have milked the goats of course. Post and Beams Building coming along just great.

  • larry tait

    Like my neighbour the pastor says, โ€œYou can get 90% of a barn done in 10% of the time, but the remaining 10% of the barn takes 90% of the time! The devil is in the details.
    So true, Al! So true.

  • Luis Zamora

    Everything’s looking good on the farm today everything’s coming out smooth I just love your farm you have one of the most wonderful family I’ve ever seen God bless you have a nice day! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ

  • dee anderson

    Good morning from Utah, cup of coffee in hand, smile on the face and I got the” March of the Goats”!!! Plus I got even more of the goats running , Oh how cute they are. That barn is looking so very nice and that soup is one of my favorites. Thank you for sharing your homestead. The goats still are my favorite and I called it right ( i think ). LOL God bless.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GINA, HOPE IT IS A GREAT ONE.

  • Linda Amidon

    After watching the video, I stood up to make more coffee and a bunch of man glitter fell to the floor. I have to stop sitting so close to the screen.

  • Don Fink

    Now that you’ve got somewhere high enough to park it under, wouldn’t it be a good idea to put the roll-over bar up on that tractor? I say this as someone who has lost two acquaintances following silly mishaps on small tractors. It’s not only the big buggers that kill!

  • Tony Levante

    We are having beef barley with ox tail soup for dinner it’s starting to get cooler now in Canada take care stay safe ciao see you

  • Greg Kifer

    “Soup” often means I have just cleaned out the fridge so the recipe depends on what was getting iffy.
