About Us

Everybody loves a love story and a happily ever-after.

Our love story began 28 years ago and continues strong to this day.  I have always loved writing.  As the kids grew older and we moved to the Texas Gulf Coast, I decided to write that book I was always thinking about.  I have just begun to apply what I learned running my herb business for a decade to my author business- let’s see where this goes!

Hollyberry Herb Farm was the name of our herb business and farm.  You will see a lot of references to this little gem if you look back through the posts.  In 2017, a tornado leveled our farm.  It took a year to clean and rebuild the business and then my husband’s job moved us to Galveston, TX.  The farm girl became and island girl.

My faith is one that encompasses all my life.  When you read my blogs and posts I may not mention God in every one of them, but know that it is always from a grateful heart that I chronicle our days and teach on gardening and homemaking and I know that every good gift is from Him and thankfully He has a sense of humor!.  I have been redeemed by the blood of my Savior and I joyously serve the Living God with my daily life.

We hope you enjoy the articles on the various topics including parenting, organic gardening, vintage home decor and whatever else pops into my head!

    1. Thank you so much, I am grateful. However, I won’t be able to participate at this time, this time of the year is just so busy getting seedlings ready for spring sales and all. Thanks, again.

  1. Hi Holly – What a great name for a blog. Your life and farm sound lovely. It sounds like we have a lot in common too – four kids, ducks, chickens, goats! My family also raises buffalo (bison) in the hills of Northwest Arkansas! Jill (my blog partner and dear friend) raises rabbits, chickens, and sheep. We are both interested in learning more about herbs, so we look forward to checking out you blog. God Bless!

    1. How great! I love “meeting” folks with common interests. Thank you for the compliments on my blog. My family loves Arkansas. As a matter of fact, we will probably buy land there one day. So if you hear of any great deals… We would love to know about them.
      With animals it is never a dull moment, add in four kids and its almost chaos- but in a good way.

  2. Hi Holly- I just found your blog and am so glad! We just got bottle calf bulls from a dairy, and have had bad luck with scouts. We have one left who seems to be thriving, but I’m intrigued with the month old calves you got (ours were 1 week old). Was that recently that you got them? I am near Kaufman so Jersey Girl Dairy isn’t that far for good babies!!

    1. Hi! We haven’t bought calves in a while due to the fact that the tornados April 2017 wiped us out. But, Jersey Girls is still a great source. We have bought calves anywhere from a day old to a month old and the electrolyte program that I describe in the posts works great. Best wishes to you!

      1. Oh no–I’m so sorry to hear that! I emailed Jersey Girls and found they have bulls available, so once we get this little guy weaned we’ll probably grab one more. Thank you for the tips and we’ll definitely use your electrolyte program!
