Have a hankering for fresh tomatoes? Or watermelon so sweet and juicy?

After a slow and chilly start, we are excited for spring to appear in Ohio and it is luring the whole family outdoors to tackle spring chores around the farm. We are a homeschooling family so I consider many of our outdoor tasks as part of our learning experience and no one objects to abandoning books for a few hours to spend time in the sunshine.

Since I can remember, things that seem easy for other people have been difficult for me. Middle school, high school, employment, and getting into college all were things that I found emotionally taxing and very nerve-wracking. Continue reading
This magical “soul food” of Korea is popular worldwide and often appears on “super food” lists for its long list of health benefits. Let’s start by answering the question, what is kimchi? Continue reading
Here at Lehman’s, we often hear from folks about their latest homesteading adventures, from raising chickens and bees to planting tomatoes for the first time. Recently, one of our own shared his story of how he went from an ordinary day at work of managing Lehman’s website and all things digital to going home and churning butter for the first time.

Let’s face it. Most of us spend a portion of our day looking at a screen of some form – computers, tablets, the latest smartphone. Technologically speaking, we are more connected than we have ever been. We get news 24/7. We can watch videos on just about anything with a quick internet search. Continue reading
