Spring Brings New Life on the Farm

by Dawn Oaks on April 29, 2016 · 0 comments

The signs of Spring on the farm just have a way of reminding me of new life.  New life can mean so many things.  Hope.  A Promise of the Future. Growth.  And Life Itself. It is a reminder that there are cycles to life.  A season for all things.  I am not sure what season […]


10 Years of Provision

by Dawn Oaks on March 6, 2016 · 0 comments

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of when our life entered the surreal.  On March 6, 2006, Gary was the target of a sting operation by Federal and State governmental agencies.  There was no basis for these attacks except for the utterly evil intentions and personal agenda of a few.  There was no criminal activity, […]


A New Shelter for the Ladies – Phase 1

As many of you are aware, our big project around the Double O Farms right now is the construction of a shelter for the cows.  The construction of this shelter will provide escape for the animals from the elements this winter.  Because it will be enclosed, the body heat from the cows will help to […]

After the New Year, it is sometimes a challenge to keep your spirits up on the farm.  The days are short, but filled with lots of work.  The temperatures are still cold and you find yourself dreaming of warm Springtime days and the sprouting of plants in the garden and greenhouse.  There are some transitional things we […]

A Sassy Start to Spring

by Dawn Oaks on February 27, 2014 · 0 comments

We got teased a bit last week by significantly warmer temperatures to only have them drop down once again. The resignation set in that Spring is just not here yet, but we know it is right around the corner. Spring seems to bring hope. Most significantly, I am reminded of the hope of our Salvation […]


Got Milk? – Retake from the Double O Farms

I am not sure that real milk has the power to take down a sniper or burglar.  However, it does wonderful things for your body with its nutrient dense composition.  For more info on the health benefits of real milk, visit the Real Milk website.

by Dawn Oaks on June 8, 2013 · 2 comments

It seems like we are right in the middle of transitioning from our more formal school year to summer. There hasn’t been a real clean break this year and many things are overlapping with each other. Feeling excitement building as we see some things about to take off on the horizon. Here are our Random […]


During this past fall, a bill was defeated in California that would require GMO labelling on foods. This would help consumers to really know the nutritional and engineered components in their food supply. Unfortunately, this bill was defeated as a result of pressure from the Monsanto and large agribusinesses. My question is this, “If they are so confident […]
