Pip Creek Farm + Studio
Welcome to Pip Creek Farm. Our farm and home is located just where boreal forests yield against prairie horizons in Manitoba, Canada. Here, we are. Surrounded by a whole horizon full of beauty. Life is not always pretty. But a lack of continual ease is not exclusive to contentment and joy. In fact, the more we strive, the more we are assured that they often go hand in hand.
In this space, I create. Sometimes side by side with my family, other times with a steady pace, alone at my table, or at times trekking across pastures, rodeo rings and ravines. I believe in what happens those spheres and the stories they relate about the land and people we live with and depend upon.
Learning About Abundance
I'm sitting here, my toes are cold, cause they're facing the north wall, away from where the heat of the woodstove rises up from the basement. I have a blanket wrapped around my shoulders. I thought about a whiskey but I decided against it. I'm happy.

Functional, ready as a catch-all. Mitts, socks, linens, books from your bedside, even plants (with a drip tray of course!).

Simple Roasted Squash
with Feta and Rosemary
Scraped down to the essentials this recipe requires some sort of fat to add depth, a stove or oven and squash. The feta, parsley, rosemary and seasonings make for a more elaborate experience.
