Fresh vegetables make holiday meals that much better and there is nothing better than fresh fruit from your family’s farm. A�Today we are showcasing A�African American Farming From The Past We Adore. From preserving the land to sharing fresh and healthy vegetables with your family and friends. African American farming is a Black Southern Belle tradition we hope survives for many generations to come.A�
African American Farming From The Past We Adore
Nothing like taking a lunch break after a long day of farming. Fresh rolls are definitely a must.
It is a special art to balance your harvest on your head. We also adore this beautiful floral pattern.
Picking the fruits of your label is a special past time and even better when done in style.
A day at the market is better with a group of friends.
Nothing like a little father daughter time on the farm.
Even when you are working on the farm, you have to stay stylish. This bow and plaid look is a winner.
Nothing like telling a funny story about chasing your livestock that day.
Nothing like passing the traditions from father to son.
We adore this beautiful farm family posing for a family photo.
This little boy is looking like a professional as he handles the family horse
We adore this couple. They look so happy even after a long day of work.
This color photo is so classic. Nothing like raising your own family chickens.
Such a playful day for this little one playing on the horse and buggy!
This is a serious throwback photo. So many memories
A little music makes the day go by faster
A sun hat is a must on a warm southern day.
A farmer’s market is a great way to connect with your local farmers. So glad this tradition is continuing today.
Michiel is a Black Southern Belle living a lowcountry life. I love all things fashion, home decor and southern! When I am not running around doing fun stuff for Black Southern Belle, I live in antique stores and have a minor obsession with historic homes 🙂
