So you want to farm naked?! For years my answer to this has been an emphatic YES!!! All that lay between me and the goal was a not for the faint of heart search for farming land. While the ideal property (as well as ideal nutrition) lies off at a distance the start has taken place. As much as I told myself I wasn't going to fall for being naive, thinking I knew a lot and ending up being very humbled, I did just that! The start on farming my own land involved a move over a 1000 miles away to a radically different climate. This meant going from an oak Savannah in Southern California to a wet prairie in the Willamette Valley (Northern Oregon)!
With a plenitude of rainfall in the winter and nearly year-round green grass the challenges I have faced were unique. The competition from perennial grass plants when establishing a no till crop is not to be underestimated! But the extra effort is worth it! We have seen some amazing improvement in the farm ecology already in one year, including more songbirds dropping by, beneficial insects staying longer and species diversity increasing!
The fall and coming winter are a relief from day to day chores, allowing a cold season to plan, reinvent and improve methods/equipment (aka sharpening the saw). All in all this year we harvested over 300 pounds of pork, 120 pounds of chicken, 50 pounds of Turkey, 60 pounds of mutton, 40 pounds of root crops and 100 pounds of squash among other lesser items! And I have taught my first workshop on animal processing! This is something to be proud of considering the realization that we needed to use pigs to prep the soil before annual crops would establish in an annual system did not occur until mid spring!
Some days admittedly would have been drudgery had they not been done in the nude. For example, scything back walkway grass in 90 deg (F) weather! What a difference a breeze on the buns (thighs and elsewhere ;-)) makes! It's times like that that make a sensual pleasure out of an arduous chore. A spirit connection where a grudge could have built in the heart. Loving the land, the experience of working actively while comfortable and jumping into outdoor bliss all make me proud to call myself a nudist farmer in those moments!

I hear from some folks that they would work naked "if they could find a way". As I'm finding out that isn't always easy. I have been looking for a place to farm naked ever since I left Rising Sun Farm in 2012. After searching for secluded spots to grow healthy food it's easy to forget just how fun it actually is being nude in nature! I will post more soon on my fledgling efforts at farming, but for now wanted to remind everyone (myself included) how fun it is to work in your Birthday suit!
Many local small farmers or farmers groups do nude calenders to support their endeavors, like the Bedfordshire Young Farmers. Please help support them or a Naked farmer near you. They grow your healthy food and could always use your support! If not financially, then a Hug is good too!

Blessings from the land of Bali! May you be Well and in Good company today. No matter where you are may you find a chance moment to share your Thanks with someone, or simply have a time where you can settle down from all the excitement and carry that feeling of Naked Thankfulness in your heart. I am so curious to know what you all are thankful for & what inspires that thankfulness. How do you become connected to that feeling/sensation of being Grateful? Apparently for myself it isn't that complicated, requiring only the simple act of healthy naked women offering good food in worship.
I am very thankful to Google for allowing me to search "Naked Gratitude", scan thousands of images and helping me find a wonderful blog called Daughter of the Sun. After following the eye catching images, I came to discover that these are women who love to travel, practice primitive skills, and worship with women in faraway lands. I am proud to be sharing the Bali-esque scenes they have recreated on Catalina Island. They even have an online store where you can purchase some of their finely handcrafted ceremonial items.
Want to eat food prepared with intention like the Balinese women do? Check out some tasty healthy treats from Cafe Gratitude. They serve up some amazingly delicious meals and deserts that are often raw and vegan! Its surprising and impressive what they can do with some simple ingredients. They will ask you when you dine there "What are you Grateful for?". Perhaps a good meal? A close friend to share it with? Just being alive?
Recently I heard someone say that she had started a practice of being Grateful for everything, good, bad or anywhere in between. When you are grateful for one thing somehow it opens up a miraculously freeing Thankful feeling around something else! In this way you slowly become reprogrammed to delight in the things that may have ruined your day just yesterday! Below I have listed a few of the small and Big things that I am grateful for in this moment.
I am grateful for women making their own drums, naked beach weather, close friendships without end, God's sense of humor, crazy unpredictable women, predictable women, finding just the right person for that moment, finding the totally wrong person, family that is always there, unpredictable decisions of others in my life, not knowing what I will like/dislike, never knowing who I will find next to share in my life, continuously evolving adventures, swimming in deep cold pools on hot summer days, fragmented falling apart memory, having good eats & better drink to share while recalling childhood memories with someone, everyday muscle tension, the innate ability to relax, my own ability to grow, to be refreshed, & be born anew, fossil fuels/free energy, being Alive, being Well, knowing that an experience that will change my life dramatically is yet to happen.
Thank you soooo much for enjoying this blog today! Please share what you are Grateful for! Being Grateful and in the moment has the power to change you. Be sure to Give Thanks to those you Love and those you have had mixed/good/bad/indifferent feelings for. Stay Grateful. Stay Nude!
