In 2017 I stumbled across a Youtube video for sourdough and was immediately intrigued. I ended up watching about a hundred tutorials before I really started to understand how to work with a sourdough starter.
Once I mastered sourdough baking, I decided to help other people learn how to do it too. But easier and faster than I did! This my friends, is how Little Spoon Farm was born!
Today, it’s a space dedicated to sourdough and comfort food recipes, food preservation, homemade pantry items and simple farmhouse living.
I've taken the guesswork out of sourdough recipes for beginners and I’m so excited to share my tips and tricks with you!
I believe ANYONE can learn to bake amazing homemade bread for their family!
I believe that the time invested in cultivating a sourdough starter is worth every penny. Your starter can last a lifetime and be passed down for generations to come!
You'll love our simple sourdough recipes like our beginner's tutorials for sourdough starter and sourdough bread. We also love sharing our favorite comfort food recipes such as slow cooker chili or classic pot roast that bring the family together around the dinner table.
When I'm not busy working on new recipes, I love spending time with my family, hanging out with the cows and putzing around the farm.
Most people are surprised to learn that I have 7 grown kids and chose to leave the city for a more simple life, near the foothills of the Tennessee mountains.
I'm so glad you stopped by Little Spoon Farm, and hope you’ll continue to come back and hang out. Cheers!
In 2019 Lodge Cast Iron featured Amys tips and tricks as an expert sourdough bread baker. Her recipes have also been featured in Country Living, People, Better Homes and Gardens, Parade and Buzzfeed.

"I'm super excited to have come across your site! Per your excellent instructions I have starter bubbling in a jar on the counter!! Thank you for helping me get started with sourdough baking!" Jennifer
"Amy, I just wanted to thank you for teaching me how to make a starter, sourdough loaves, using the discard and how to store starter when absent for a period of time. My wife and I went on holiday overseas so I stored my starter. However, because of what you’ve taught me, I easily “awoke” my snoozing starter, and am now (impatiently!) waiting for my sourdough loaves to cool before I eat some much needed fresh delicious bread. Not to mention the fantastic crackers from the discard 😋. You’ve become something of a hero in our household!" Roddy
"Hi Amy I truly appreciate your sample time schedule as it all seems overwhelming.....but you've done a superior job of explaining in simple detail each step. I've made your sourdough discard crackers and LOVE them! Very addictive! Thanks again!" Pamela
"Hi Amy, After trying many sourdough starter recipes and wasting many 5 pound of flour bags, I stumbled across your Beginner's Sourdough Starter recipe about 10 days ago. Yesterday, on the 7th day of feeding, my starter passed the "Float" test. Yippppeeeeeeeeeee." Hannoush
"Hi Amy! Your starter directions worked perfectly and I am ready to make my first loaf!" Debbie
"Just produced 2 amazing sourdough loaves using your technique, thank so much!" Dave
