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 β€œFINDING A BETTER WAY” 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 so….. 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!

  • Kathleen Cone

    *smiles…. It’s a lovely Lumnah Acres morning, indeed!

  • ANGEL77762

    Good morning Lumnah’s & critters… I always look forward to when I can catch your videos in the morning… I don’t always get to see them when they first come out. Have a wonderfully blessed day y’all!!

  • Tony Grimes

    Good Morning Everybody From The Algarve Portugal.

  • hillock farm

    Chickens here are not fussy, but i pick what they get (influences what the eggs taste like). Put a compostheap in where the chickens are and feed the kitchenscraps there, what they don’t eat turns into compost and tasty bugs for the chickens.

  • Martin Fletcher

    You should let your eggshells dry out and crush them so the chickens don’t get used to pecking egg shaped objects because they can end up eating eggs

    • Recovering Soul

      If an egg is broken he already tosses it on the ground and lets the chickens eat it. It’s normal for chickens to dispose of the eggs that are broken so they don’t attract predators. I don’t think they will start deliberately cracking and eating their own good eggs.

      I don’t have lifestock, but save eggshells to put into plants for calcium.

    • Martin Fletcher

      When I had chickens we had several that started eating their eggs, there was nothing I could do to break them of the habit once they started, they were very nice soup, then I started crushing the shells and never had another eat their eggs.

    • Linda Hutson

      You may already have a egg eater your broken eggs in the nest box there shells are gone and the inside mostly eat

    • ndproducelady

      @jim putnam I keep my eggs shell in a flat box lined with parchment paper and when its full I bake them in the oven at 200 for 1 hr. Then its easier to crush to add to the garden.

    • Patricia Boyd

      Woohoo…I always say eleven when you ask how many eggs.. Happy farming..

  • Judie Pie

    Figaro the farm boss! 😺

    • Naomi Beery

      He knows it too! He doesn’t have a job but he tries to be in the middle of the happenings.

    • Wambli Paytah

      It’s nice to see him taking his job seriously and testing the goat and chicken grain finally πŸ˜‰πŸ˜›πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜

    • Wambli Paytah

      @Naomi Beery Oh he has a job… If Figaro wasn’t there to supervise who knows what could go wrong πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

  • Rosamond Harris

    Good morning!! I’m was wondering how are your honey and bumble bees are doing with this cooler weather?

  • Sue Dale

    • Lumnah Acres

      He lets us know when he likes it or not. πŸ˜†

  • Howard Bain

    How about bringing the rest of your lumber inside your shed so it’s dry

    • David Johnston

      Maybe once he gets the gravel in there.

    • Chris 3M

      He should have put a loft door on the new shed or put an opening inside the shed.

    • Am. Blades

      @Chris 3M I pointed that out, to the point I thought he might ban me. So much wasted space. Alivea I know I spelled it wrong. But She could have a hide out up there and be able to leave the door open. I think he could still do it. There is enough room for the door on the end. I was thinking small double doors? Or put the door on the inside some how.???


    Those goats come a running for Olivia!! That soup looked amazing, too.

  • CC Rider

    That’s the first cat I ever seen eat alfalfa! πŸ˜‚

  • Richard Mattingly

    Figaro should be a bit worried because Al might be caught measuring/weighing him wondering what he might taste like after all he’s been raised on feed grain and he’s nice n plump finally..

  • James T

    I am surprised you feed whole egg shell to your birds, this can lead to them eating their eggs in the coop. We keep them, then sick them in the oven to bake them, finally we crush them and put it back in their feed, this way they don’t get the smell and sight of whole eggs as food.

    • Whiskey61

      He has been doing it for years. Its an old wives tale about them eating their eggs.

      Again, he has been doing this for years. It is an old wives tale.

    • Julie Beckingham

      @Whiskey61 how many chickens have you got?

    • Whiskey61

      @Julie Beckingham Not sure what that matters? I have read people in the comments for about 2 years telling Al that feeding the chickens eggs will make them start eating eggs. Yet 2 years on and it still hasn’t happened. And still people warn him like they are the first ones to mention it when they are actually the 50th.

    • Janetta Vculek

      @Julie Beckingham It’s and old wive’s tale and I raised hundreds across my years.

    • MaLeigh V

      We’ve fed whole egg shells to our chickens for 20 years and have never had a single chicken eat any eggs.

  • zetus kid

    This question is for Gina! How has life changed for since becoming a full-time country homesteading wife? I guess what I mean is how has life changed for you since quitting your public job and coming home to the homestead?

  • Rebecca Hendersen

    Yes, my chickens are so fussy when it comes to scraps.

    Hey Al, so why not bag up and freeze all the food scraps. You will get more pigs in a few months anyway. Feed it to them then. Just a suggestion.

  • timothy bryan

    I just love seeing you every week.

  • Chris S

    I would love to see you get that deck built that you mentioned last year. You and the family could sit and look out over your property and see the progress you’ve made , and Gods beautiful creation spread out before you.

    • Kathleen Warner

      Yes, I love my deck. But a pond would be nice for them,too. It would water the stock, and be pretty to look at. Maybe Olivia could ice skate there.

  • Green Acre Birds

    My chickens eat basically everything except potato skin.πŸ˜†

  • Mandy Mongeon

    Hello! This isn’t related to this video, but I just wanted to say thank you for posting. When my grandfather was sick and weeks away from passing we’d spend time together watching your videos. He didn’t really have God in mind before passing but when he’d watch you pray at meals, I think that really nudged at his heart. Thank you friends, all love & blessings from πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

  • SSanf

    LOL. Does Figaro even like cat kibble? He has his own ideas of a good meal.
