Editor’s Note: We’re so excited to share with you a heartwarming family tradition. A few years ago, Proprietor Galen Lehman shared how making a lamb cake was part of his family’s Easter celebration. Today his daughter, Lindsay, is continuing the tradition with her own daughter. Learn step-by-step how to make this cake for your family!
To say things have been abnormal this spring, would certainly be an understatement. However, with coronavirus uprooting so much of our lives’ normal patterns and routines, I find myself clinging to traditions even stronger. One of these is an Easter tradition started by my grandma—our chocolate lamb cake. Continue reading

Our Amish-made furrowing hoe has a razor-sharp, arrowhead-shaped blade that makes defined furrows for planting and enables you to weed around small, tender seedlings and plants without damaging them (and without having to get on your hands and knees). At Lehmans.com and our store in Kidron, Ohio.
Editor’s Note: This article comes to us from Becky Workinger, Lehman’s former Customer Service Manager. Enjoy!
I remember my maternal grandfather always saying, “Plant your peas on St Patrick’s Day.” March the 17th in Northeast Ohio can be a very cold, wintry, blustery day. Not the case this year – it was sunny and 55 degrees when I got home from work. Just ten days ago there were still piles of snow on the ground and I still had Christmas lights on the flagpole making a tree effect with lights.
My family has always been gardeners, and I married a farmer who has taught me even more the stewardship of the land, the love of agriculture and how important it is to all of us. Earlier in the day I thought of the planting and ran at my lunch break to purchase seeds.
Springtime has always been my absolute favorite time of year. Maybe it’s the way that spring marks the end of the long, cold season in Ohio that makes me love it so much. Or maybe, it’s because I celebrate my birthday in May, so springtime is always filled with excitement and joy for me. Or, maybe, it’s how all the woodland animals have their babies in the spring, so I always see tiny ducklings, goslings, bunnies, deer, and raccoons. Mostly likely, it’s all of these reasons combined!

Five years ago this month, I was bringing our family’s fifth baby into the world. We were living in a nice, suburban neighborhood with a big, fenced in yard and a fabulous wooden playset flanked with six raised bed gardens. My friends called me Martha because I liked to grow food and cook from scratch. I liked to sew and craft and just make things in general. Little did I know what that was about to become.

So you live on a homestead. You work all day feeding chickens, caring for bees, milking cows or goats, weeding the garden, and canning vegetables. But during those lonely hours of work, you long to connect with other like-minded women who are engaged in similar activities. What’s a homesteading woman to do?
You harness the power of the internet, that’s what. Continue reading
About four million people in the world were born on February 29 – Leap Day. On that day, every four years, those people get to do something most people get to do once every year. They get to celebrate their birthday on the actual date they were born.
Having a 366-day-long year is an interesting phenomena that we’ve all grown up with. If you’re like me, you never really questioned it. It has always just been part of life. But, given that this February will include Leap Day, I was wondering why exactly we, as humans, thought it necessary to tack that day onto the year. Continue reading
