Preserving the Harvest

As the summer comes to an end and the leaves start to fall, nothing is more rewarding than walking into your pantry and seeing preserves lining the shelves. The months of hard work that go into growing a bountiful garden are finally coming to fruition as you take in all of your delicious results! It’s such a satisfying feeling; from picking ripe fruits or vegetables at peak season to preserving them for later use – it truly is one of life’s most delightful accomplishments. Preserving food isn’t just about having something tasty on hand for later either; it’s also about conserving all those amazing flavors, colors, and nutrition from your harvest so they can be enjoyed throughout the year. Let’s explore how we can make that happen!

Welcome to Hummingbird Acres

Hi, I’m Deeanne

Welcome to Hummingbird Acres…..  We want to help you create your Dream Homestead!!

For us it all started with Poison Ivy and a google search. Where Mr. Google Pants taught us how to get rid of it and introduced us to Homesteading and Permaculture. We jumped head first into homesteading and along the way felt the pull to share our Homesteading Adventures.

We are mom & dad to four kiddos plus Ru, our chocolate lab. Jamie and I (Deeanne) believe in treating everyone like family, keeping our minds and hands busy with DIY and renovation projects, gardening, making delicious goodies and meals to share, and always having an empty bed for guests. Join us as we share our love for homesteading and Inspire you to Build your Dream Homestead.
