Hello there. I’m Lindsay, the face behind Little Acre Farm. Our small farm began when our family moved to our current property in the country in 2014. We wanted a life where we could have farm animals and grow our own food. A place where our kids could grow up exploring and getting dirty. Our little farm is on one acre of land surrounded by farmland and forest on an old dirt road. You would be surprised by how much you can accomplish on an acre of land. Hence the name Little Acre Farm.
The previous owners of our home left behind their chickens. So we were instant chicken keepers when we moved in. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise because low and behold these chickens laid blue eggs. My mind was blown and so I started chasing the egg rainbow. Who knew there were so many colours!! Well as most hobby farmers know chickens are a gateway animal, so then along came our 4 Nigerian Dwarf Goats, 2 minipigs, 1 bunny, 1 dog and 3 cats and an ever growing amount of new chickens. Chicken math is real!!! I have many more big plans for our farm, including a large vegetable garden so I can learn the art of canning and a cut flower garden because fresh cut flowers just make life better.
Since we are getting to know each other I thought I would share some random things about myself. I love, love, love, coffee, I rarely ever wear make-up, I am a crazy chicken lady that loves chatting about poultry, my husband and I have been together since grade 9 and we are still going strong, I am not happy unless I have some sort of project going on, I am obsessed with audiobooks and I always have one on the go, I love snapping pics of our farm and sharing on Instagram, I have two great kids that keep me hopping and I am smitten with white farmhouses even though our farmhouse is not white, go figure.
Another passion of mine is Interior design and Art. I went to college for Art and Graphic Design. I love to draw. I especially enjoy drawing our farm animals. Though I am a little shy when it comes to showing off my work. Right now we are renovating our old farmhouse. I have a bit of an eclectic style. If I had to describe it I would say my style is mostly modern farmhouse with a little touch of whimsy, antique charm and basically whatever else I am loving at the moment. Finding old things and giving them new life brings me joy. Garage sales and Facebook Marketplace are my jam. This is actually the third home that we have completely renovated or we will have once we are done this house. It is still a work in progress. This time it is a little different though because I know I actually get to design it for us and not for resale. This is where we plan to stay on Little Acre Farm.
