104 episodes

In 5 minutes a day, you are immersed in the life of a little farm. The characters -- furry, feathered and human -- contribute to your escape. It's a break from your daily grind where lessons from chickens, strangely enough, apply to you, your friends, family and colleagues no matter where you live. Step onto the farm during your commute, in a break between meetings, while doing chores, working out or with your morning coffee. The farm's a simple place with complex dynamics that will leave you thinking about it well after the five minutes are through.

The Accidental Farm podcast has been touted as "bingeworthy" with "enchanted storytelling" that's "a cure for a modern life full of frustrating password resets and too many long customer service hold times."

    Bees? Yup. The Accidental Farm welcomed two beehives with the dream of bottling honey and designing cute labels. But that soon changed. It's a long bee story and this is the beginning of the adventure.

    Early Days Can Be Rough

    What started as a birthday wish ended with 12 feet, 6 horns and three goats. And every new member of the Accidental Farm comes with a life lesson but not an instruction manual.

    Plant Something... Or Else

    It is uncanny how a garden is just like real life. The real life that is not the garden. I have had my garden since 2010... eleven seasons. So many failures. So many unexpected surprises. And weeds. Weeds have a way of creeping in. Even outside a garden. I think you know what I mean.

    She's a Boy or He's a Girl

    I am not kidding when I say this is an Accidental Farm. So many accidents. Some happy ones or funny ones. They can happen to anyone. You just have to embrace them... and adapt. I am a city and country girl, did you know? It makes for some pretty funny stories.

    Thanks for being here. Reach out to me on Instagram @xoxofarmgirl I would love to hear from you!

Eagerly awaiting the next season!!

Dana so beautifully weaves together stories about her sweet little farm. Whether you’re city dweller or a fellow farmer; her farm characters are relevant and entertaining.

Each episode leaves me pondering deeper life lessons relating to my own life. It is binge worthy, and also, rich in little bite size pieces. Love it!!

Like a perfect cup of coffee!

This podcast is just like a perfect cup of coffee. It hits the spot with a story to follow, a thought or two to ponder and well, farm animals! Thanks for bringing the farm to all of us.

Accidental Farm

A really delightful listen: short and sweet, very interesting and diverse; always about much loved and lived with animals. It's become an ongoing story that I can't wait to hear unfold.
