Kanuga Creek Farm

The beginning of Kanuga Creek Farm
The beginning of Kanuga Creek Farm
When my husband, Steven, and I bought our farm in 2011 it was full of brush and brambles, but we saw it’s future potential. When we were looking for a name for our little piece of paradise “Brushy Creek” seemed most appropriate, but not very unique. We stumbled upon the word Kanuga which is Cherokee for blackberry bush or brambles, and so Kanuga Creek Farm was born.
We did a lot of work in a short period of time. We raised a barn, set up a corral, put in stock tanks, and built miles of fence. The first livestock at Kanuga Creek was a dozen pregnant Boer goats, and boy did they help with the brush clearing. Soon after followed chickens, horses and finally cows. Nowadays we are just in the chicken and cattle business, but I sure do miss those goats.

Our Family

If you don’t count the cows and chickens I am definitely outnumbered around here. I am the proud mother of three wonderful boys; Kyler is 15, Kolten is 14, and then there is Wyatt who will be 3 in April. Kyler and Kolten are typical teenage boys, they fight constantly and leave muddy boot prints all over the house. Despite that fact, I am so proud of the young men they are becoming. I have no doubt that life at Kanuga Creek has taught them the value of hard work and responsibility. Wyatt is such a blessing and a joy, he is sweet and affectionate but also a toddler terrorist. There are days when he could give Mussolini a run for his money.  Oh, and we can’t forget about my wonderful husband, Steven AKA The Handyman. Without all of his hard work and dedication Kanuga Creek would not be what it is today. And by the way, he really is pretty handy. He built our beautiful home here at Kanuga Creek, and I cannot wait to share it with y’all.

Myself

I love to cook and bake for my family. Especially that good old comfort food. I rarely follow a recipe and when I do I inevitably change something in it. The Handyman always jokes that put in everything but the kitchen sink (eyeroll). Head on over to The Hearth whenever you are looking for something savory, sweet or easy. I can’t wait to hear which ones are your favorites.

I have always had a love for home design, however I am very particular and will spend hours scouring for exactly the perfect item. Sometimes the item as I have imagined it cannot be found and that is how I began creating my own home decor items years ago. There wasn’t much I hadn’t tried my hand at except for furniture until about 5 years ago when I discovered Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and…my…life…was…changed..  As will your’s. Head on over to The Home to check out some amazing furniture transformations,farmhouse style, DIY and trash2treasure projects.
