So I’ve decided that this morning I am going to start playing around with some logo ideas that are floating in my head. Coming up with ideas, or drawing with regards to logos can be extremely difficult at times. I have been lucky enough to have some past experience in this as I have had a few business ideas prior to this, and have done designing for them. I have also been very lucky to of had some friends who do signage, or vehicle decals, who have given me some pointers.
First: Start with a name.
If you don’t have a name for your company, creating a logo will be a little more difficult, as you name and logo should co and side with one another. You wouldn’t want please to see your logo and be confused about what your name is, or how they go together. ect. “Why have a plummer picture, for a farm name?” it just doesn’t make sense right??? Right.
Second: Brainstorm ideas.
Put some ideas, drawings, or even pictures together, that spark a thought for your logo, or company plan. Have friends, or partners join you in the thought process. However, let me remind you, if you haven’t spoken to anyone about your plan or idea yet, maybe keep going and do your due diligence alone. Not everyone will be as happy or excited about your ideas or plans as you are, but you need to remain calm, positive, and moving forward. Don’t let others negative thoughts, or questions bring you down. You’ve already thought through most things already, so keep going!!!
Third: Sit on it!!!
Yes, I literally mean sit on it. Why? Because what you think, like, or maybe even love today, might not be what you see, like, or want next week, or even better a month from now. Remember, you personally will not always be the face or first thing people see when getting a first glance at your company/idea. It will be your logo. So make sure it’s something you feel is the one thing, you do carefully, and over time.
Now, that I’ve given you my thoughts, and you’re well on your own way to thinking about things. Remember, no matter if your naming a school, business, farm, or street, your logo/name, are very important.

So for the past few weeks I have been doing some research and gathering information about incubators, how they work, what’s needed, and how best to figure out what one works for your needs! After watching some YouTube channels I had thought I found one that would work for us. However, after speaking to some local farmers in our area, and finding out their thoughts and what works for them, I discovered that purchasing an incubator from our local Tractor supply store, was the way to go!
Without, further thought when we seen they were on sale again for $60 off, we jumped on them. Now please let me remind you, we have done some thorough investigating with regards to what we wanted to incubate for our first, ever attempt. We know a few local farmers who have been wonderful and really helped us better understand the different breeds we could incubate. We looked at chickens, ducks, quail, and pheasant. It, was decided for ease of ability once hatched, to sell, or give back to our local farmer friends, chicken eggs was the final choice.
So, I started our new incubator and contacted one of our farmer friends and arranged 24 hrs later to pick-up some eggs, to start this process.
So, here we go!!!!
How many of you believe in home made? Wither the item(s) maybe food, cleaning, grandmas Remedies, or Grandpa’s quick fix repairs, or something you’ve designed, and use. When you think of these, do you think home made, or old school ways? we’d love to hear your thoughts, and idea’s.
I have been a city girl for a few years now, but have not, and will never lose my country girl routes. Sadly for a few years I lost myself in the hustle and bustle of city living, but am happy to say I am slowly making my way back again to the life I love, and the air I miss breathing, everyday. I grew up on a very small hobby horse farm in a very small town outside Ottawa, ON. My life time dream after losing my childhood family farm, has always been to one day get back to my roots. Well, for the past year myself, and my fiance have been slowly more and more pulling away from the hustle and bustle and becoming more familiar with today’s homestead ideas. However, what I have noticed is all my old school knowledge, from my childhood, is more valuable then I first thought.
Please follow along, on our new adventure, of me getting back to my routes, and our learning experiences along the way!
