Merry Christmas from GNOWFGLINS (Video)

What a year! This video highlights many of the fun and rewarding things we shared at GNOWFGLINS in 2011.

You helped us turn our sweet and creamy Jersey milk into all manner of cultured dairy, butter and cheese.

You shared our gardening adventures on our friends’ farm.

We worked together to preserve our harvests through lacto-fermentation.

You watched our videos and attended free webinars on traditional cooking, homeschooling, sourdough, easy cultured dairy, and more.

You came with us to the Oregon woods to hunt wild chanterelle mushrooms.

Together we hit Dallas for the Wise Traditions 2011 conference.

But most importantly, together we praised God for His good gifts and tender mercies.

Thank you for sharing in the many adventures and lessons of 2011!

Merry Christmas! May your celebration of Christ’s birth be blessed beyond measure.

P.S. The video we’re sending to family is right here, if you’re interested. It is a little more personal.

    What a wonderful video–thank you for sharing it with us.

    My 18 year old son is interested in knowing more about the music you used in it–if you have time to share that:)!

    Merry Christmas, and we are looking forward to learning more with you in 2012!

    I agree with missbrett who wrote it was nice to get a peek into your personal life and see what was done both in your kitchen and on your land. Merry Christmas, thanking God for His goodness to the children of men.

    Dearest Wardee and family,

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you!

    I love all of your helpfu hints and recipes! I work out of the home, so it makes it a little more difficult to make as many recipes as I’d like, but I have the weekends to try to fit everything in.

    I’m so glad that I will be able to join you in your Webinar, in January, as I will still be on vacation.
    Thank you for all of the things that you have taught us, thusfar, so that we may nourish our family, and pass on recipes, and the like.

    Blessings on you.

    P.S. I do not have a Website.

    Merry Christmas!
    We considered ourselves family and watched the other video, too.
    It was wonderful visiting a few days ago and we look forward to a lot more visiting “just down the street”.
    See you and have fun.
