Hello! Greetings from Pine Knot Kentucky.Â We are in the rolling hills of Kentucky where the plateau meets the mountains. It is a truly beautiful place to live. My name is Joel Combs andÂ I amÂ the 10th generation to farm the 170 acres that we call home. I have 3 children â€“ Kaylee, Garett, and Mattie, ages 5, 7, and 9. We live in an authentic log home built by my grandfather and his brothers shortly before WWII.
Our little farm consists of 5 horses, 40 or so registered Boer goats, and Red Star chickens. I do custom hay work, till gardens, & mow with my 03′ Mahindra 6000 4×4. We sell Farm Fresh Brown Eggs & Hay inÂ Rolls and Square bales. We also raise muchÂ of our own pork, beef, chicken, and garden vegetables.
Most folks wonder why anyone would do something like this blog. For us the answer is a simple one. Too many kids today don’t know where the things we eat truly come from.Â Our kids have seen how our food was raised and how the process works.
Life’s lessons are plentiful on a farm.
This whole concept is to show all about our way of life. The amount of work that goes into it, the tools we use to do the work, the lessons we all learn, and the smiles and tears we all share. Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll check back here frequently as we’ll be posting pictures and stories of what’s happening in our neck of the woods.
