About Me

My photo
My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

Marachel Foch Wine

We used 10 gallons of the juice we crushed  and extracted to begin our batch of wine.
We made a simple syrup with about 8 cups of water and 8 and a half pounds of sugar that we added to the juice (looking back we wish we would have used juice to make the simple syrup instead of adding water, but we will make sure to do that next time). Then we filtered the juice through our "handy dandy filter system" (picture to the left) and  divided it into 3 different carboys (to avoid overflow we did not fill them to the top...yet).
