After living on 5 acres for 15 years and now back on an acre an hour south of Nashville, I decided to put a list together of some of my favorite things. This list is just what came to mind. Feel free to leave your ideas in the comments. 




If she has to go feed the animals she might as well be cute doing it. I LOVE my bogs. They are the best boots. Water proof and mud proof. Chicken or goat poo proof too. Easy to rinse off. Warm in the winter. Can’t go wrong with this gift.



Canning supplies. If there is a bounty to be harvested then that harvest will need to be put up for winter. This kit has everything one needs for canning. Except the jars.

If there is meat or stews to can then you will want a pressure canner, not the water bath you see above.
Don’t forget the Ball Canning Book. I use this book more than any other canning book.

I remember how happy I was to get a new milk bucket when we had goats. It’s the little things.


MILK PAIL (or for egg collecting)

Something I always wanted, but never did get was this cool filter system to filter the milk.




Got Chickens? These counter top rack are adorable!




Tired of canning, but still have food to put up? How about dehydrating it? I have done the circle style and prefer this one more.



Pretty much any book on Homesteading is a good idea.  This one is a fave I refer to all the time.


Oh! Don’t forget the work gloves
