Skeffling is a tiny hamlet in East Yorkshire, England where I spent happy times at my Grandparents small-holding.  It's the only Skeffling in the world and my roots are there.
We have worked on being self-sufficient for 11 years now and have learned a lot!  I share the easiest ways to do gardening, chickenry, beekeeping, recipes, drying herbs and vegetables, making jam, jellies, chutney, salsa, and pickles, wine-making, bread-making, cheese-making, farming and drying lavender, savvy shopping and give general hobby-farming and homesteading tips.  
Here on Skeffling Lavender Farm, we really enjoy the chickens, and I write about them on my Easy Chickenry site. 
I have 4 neat Zazzle gift Stores with

Antique Easter Postcards & Gifts
Rare Poultry Gifts
Belted Galloway Gifts
Images of Antique lace, linen & lavender

With working outside so much, I have become a connoisseur of being comfortable when wet and cold outside so have shopping tips in the following blogs:

Insulated Coveralls
Hunter Rain Boots
