Welcome to The Pauley Principle!

The Pauli Principle, named for Wolfgang Pauli, deals with atoms and electron-sharing that results in new, stronger bonds. Think 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen, a shared delectable (!) electron and VOILA! Water!

Similarly, when you prepare whole food to share with family and friends, especially foods you've grown, something amazing happens. Meals become tastier and healthier. Your soul, not just your stomach, becomes fulfilled. You live life more abundantly as a result. During a shared meal, the bonds that people create grow stronger and become something new: GREATER than the sum of the parts! I give you The Pauley Principle.

The Day Before We Opened our Farm Market

If you looked at the farm today, you'd know it's not ready for a farm market! There's no sign up. The weather is NASTY. Oh, but the goods are being prepared just the same!!! And I'm having so much fun! We can move into the camper or the cooler if weather is unkind. There will be plenty of delicious things to offer! And brown eggs!

Jellies, jam, some squash are ready to go. The pepper jelly is expected to be a big hit! It's unusual and so tasty and will had a delightfully spicy lift to meals such as in sweet and sour dishes, meatloaf, or as a dipping sauce. I made two batches to start.

Our farm market will be on Saturdays from 12 to 6. As the season permits we will also offer fresh garden vegetables and maybe fruit, if it's a better year than 2011!

Look for us at the
Old Homestead Farm Market, 
2589 Blain Hwy about 2 miles from Route 23, just north of Waverly Ohio.

  1. ....it must smell good in the house!

  2. dr momi, it was heavenly! Never, ever had I baked like that before. What a workout! But it just felt so good and the aroma of fresh baked breads and cookies! Now, if I can just gear up to do MORE because the demand is greater than I expected!!! That's a good problem, though. I'll just take some of the time away from making cookies and put that time on artisan breads and pies.

  3. And thanks, dr momi, I always enjoy your comments!
