20 Telltale Signs That You’re a Farm Girl

Print page


Happy Sunday friends! I thought I would put together a fun post today “20 Ways To Know You Are A Farm Girl!”

As I have shared with all of you I am a Farm Girl at Heartย even though my farm is my very ownย Lil’ Suburban Homestead! ย When my husband and I first got married I immediately had this urge to garden and can and preserve our own food!

It’s definitely in my DNA from theย moment we bought our first house I wanted to can and went to yard sales and estate sales to find canning supplies and now of course I have tons of supplies but it took time I even gave a lot of my supplies away in a move once.

I thought other like-minded friends would enjoy this post…

20 Telltale Signs That You’re A Farm Girl

1. You often have straw in your hair.

2. You cannot drive past a farmers market without stopping.

3. You are addicted to canning supplies.

4. You cannot stop subscribing to garden/seed magazines and publications.

5. You love the smell of a good compost mixture.

6. You have seeds laying in various places all over your house.

7. Boots, headlamp, and gun are handy by the back door (or some combination thereof)

8. You dream of owning chocolate marans unless you already own them of course!

9. You’re secretly angry the neighbors live so close (this applies to suburban farmers) so you may be able to add goats or other livestock. ๐Ÿ˜‰

10. Your house often smells like onion, peppers, or cabbage from your dehydrating projects.

11. All gardening supplies are fair game…a hoe makes you a swoon and a nice pair of snippers could bring tears to your eyes!

12. All old and damaged fruit suddenly looks like a bottle of wine to you ๐Ÿ˜‰

13. Burlap and canning jars are decorating tools in your home.

14. You go nutty with excitement when your fruit or nut-tree gets it’s very first fruit or nut.

15. Your yearly anniversary trip involves collecting 6 bushels of apples, gourds, squash, and pumpkins.

16. A hot date with your husband or significant other is drinking homemade hard cider and planning next year’s garden!

17. You try to convince your girlfriends that it would be more fun to have a canning party than a girls night out!

18. For us beekeeper farm gals we use honey instead of antibiotic ointment so folks come over and we could literally have honey anywhere on our body!

19. You eat eggs every single day of your life.

20. You dream of having an old farm truck! To haul all your produce in one day!


Wishing you all a beautiful week!

    1. Thank goodness for the world wide web or I would have felt alone for years! So glad I’ve got my farm gal friends out there ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. This made me laugh because each and everyone of those you listed was me! I can add one…” In order to spend time with your hubby he invites you to sit in a tree stand for hours with him, only to find out you are not allowed to talk, and you love it!”

    1. Sue of course you made the list! Only a farm gal would be remotely interested in the list…chocolate marans are a new fad “chicken” but any chicken that lays an egg is A okay in my book ๐Ÿ˜‰ Glad you stopped in!

    1. Thanks so much Lucy!!!! I so appreciate that you loved the list and thought it had something for almost everyone! I so appreciate the comment ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. That is so me. I have lived on out farm for over 40 years wouldn’t live any where else. Just today I trying to figure out next years garden and planning on what I am canning. You just cant get away from it once you start. Love every minute.

  3. I am alot of those. I have been gardening and dealing with livestock most of my life. (all of which could be one of the reasons my marriage didnt work = he didnt want to do any of it = damn city boy) I truly enjoyed your page.

    1. Aaaw thanks so much Yvette….:) I so appreciate you stopping in….I think that some people love learning primitive skills and to others it just looks a lot like work!
