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 “FINDING 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!

    Good Morning Everybody From Ireland

  • Ralph

    Al just lost his knife.

    • Yamaris Terrero

      When I saw him cut the pork belly I was thinking I need one too.

    • Frank Gerlach

      @Yamaris Terrero You need three knifes, Chef knife 8-10 inch, Paring knife4-6 inch, and a boning knife 8 inch flexible. With those three knifes you can handle 99% of most kitchen chores. There are some specialty knifes like a butcher knife or a long slicing knife that are good to own too.

  • Don Clay

    Figaro probably saw what happened to the pigs after they ate the pig food. He wasn’t born yesterday ya know. 🙂

  • Bill Evans

    Remember when you get your next piglets they are also known as BACON SEEDS

  • Tony Levante

    If figaro starts to eat that chicken grain he might start to lay eggs lol

  • jimmy white

    Al, have you guy’s ever tried my favorite, fried green tomatoes? Of course im a proud southern boy, but its really popular in North Carolina!

  • RumMonkeyable

    Just in case a few folks missed the lyrics posted earlier. Again, thanks for introducing us to Michael Shynes, Happy Before We Get Old

    Happy Before We Get Old by Michael Shynes

    I don’t cry when it rains no more
    Or I get dirt on my shoes
    I don’t mind climbing 8 more floors
    Cause these stairs are all heading to you
    I don’t wait for tomorrow’s sunshine
    When I feel it today
    And when it’s cold in the winter
    Remember that snow melts away

    One more cold drink
    One more road
    One more dance before
    The doors get closed
    Please remember enjoy the show
    Let’s get happy before we get old

    We don’t need plans or a fancy agenda
    Let’s just see where it goes
    We got no care for the way people stare
    At the dirt and dust on our clothes
    Hey, my friend, we’ll never say remember when
    If we keep making memories where we stand

    One more cold drink
    One more road
    One more dance before
    The doors get closed
    Please remember enjoy the show
    Let’s get happy before we get old

    Go put on that old wedding dress now
    Probably still fits like a glove
    Tell the band to play one more slow song
    Cause you still have all my love

    One more cold drink
    One more road
    One more dance before
    The doors get closed
    Please remember enjoy the show
    Let’s get happy before we get old

    One more cold drink
    One more road
    One more dance before
    The doors get closed
    Please remember enjoy the show
    Let’s get happy before we get old
    Let’s get happy before we get old

    No more whiskey
    I’ll have a Coke
    Catching bass on an old fishing boat
    One more story from Grandpa Joe
    Let’s get happy before we get old

    • Tony Grimes

      RumMonkeyable – Thanks!!! I’ve been trying for days to find out. The voice was familiar & should have though of Michael Shynes seeing as Lumnah Acres have used him before but not recently. Thanks again!

    • Wambli Paytah

      Thank you! You know Al might tell terrible jokes but I love his taste in music 😉😀😀😀

  • mark mclendon

    she cooks , does chores, takes impeccable notes, looks devastatingly cute and unlike any of my wives she laughs at your dumb jokes……you’re a lucky man

  • Lee Schnell

    Another way to get the air out of the bag is submerge the bag in water but leave the zipper above the water. The water will push out the air and you can seal the bag while it is submerged. I like using a sous vide machine, so this technique is key!

  • Judith Haskell

    Couldn’t hear you at the end of your video over the music.

  • Robert Bright

    where is Oliva the math would be a good learning for her how to figure for her home schooling

  • Dimitri Vos

    You’re a excremely lucky man to live in such a beautifull place with those animals and a loving family

  • ashy slashy

    can you get your wife a wireless mic so we can hear her talk….

  • Richard Wood

    “Making me have to pee”! Al you are a hoot. Have a great day Sir.

  • Henry Potter

    Not sure if you did something different or it’s just because I’m watching on this tv but I didn’t understand the wrap up at all, could barely hear it…

  • JB Brown

    We used to cure in a clay crock. The zip lock bags we’re yet to be invented.
    Our Sandwich bags were open ended and made of waxed paper.

  • Solvend FPV

    Voice over at the end was buried in the music. Levels were off

  • James Turner

    Tanner is a natural sheep herder, that’s for sure.

  • Mary Cody

    I really loved the way Al and Gina interacted with each other in the kitchen scene today. You can tell they love each other. Makes me like them that much more. Such a sweet and loving couple. Thanks for another great video Al, Gina and Livi. God loves you all. God bless you all.

    When you pull your tomato plants, save any desent sized green tomatoes by clipping part of the stem with them then put them stem and all into a brown paper bag to ripen. I do that when the growing season is over and they taste great. Just check the bag every few days to pull out and use the ones that ripen before the others. One year when I lived in CT I had fresh tomatoes from my garden for Thanksgiving.
