There is a land of rolling hills called Wyoming, where Night Hawk Bear hails. Born the youngest of 4 boys, there was to be much rabble in his upbringing. Fortunately, the worst he could do was falling headlong off a stack of hay, for you see, he was blindfolded. As it turns out, one does not merely channel the powers of ninjas at such a young age, one must practice. This I learned as he landed in a water trough, where the horses were busy drinking. He volunteered, in time of war, to serve in the armed forces of the United States. For 6 years he learned countless life skills from an “elite cadre of crushers” within the special forces for near the entirety of his service. This gentleman is grateful for the path, “my creator led me through (sometimes by the hair).” He will pass along these skills and more to our growing Nation with many events to come.

Enter Yak husbandry! The long-term dream for Beartaria is hunting via Yak-back, making/selling their coats, as well as constructing timber structures. As a part of Beartaria Times, Night Hawk Bear offers his skills as a commercial/video editor to promote events, and help our community grow and flourish, dear readers. The Bears are a living example of Psalm 23:5 —

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.”

Psalm 23:5

The enemies are looming, let us have a large table, O’brothers!

The Crushing Continues at the Second Annual Midwest Bearfest

Farming Artist was the bear who put this all together. She and her family offered workshops on butchering chickens, making chicken stock, keeping bees, making goat milk soap, and trimming goat hooves, but I’m sure I missed a few.

During the last few days of September, rolling into the first few days of October, our friends, The Jones family, hosted the second annual Midwest Bearfest.

In mid-Michigan lies a small farming town and a family of Crushers willing to have 100 people at their farm. Moonlit Farm has been in the Jones family for five generations and counting.

Read more about their family and farm here.

The event was held from Thursday through Sunday. Farming Artist put this all together. She and her family offered workshops on butchering chickens, making chicken stock, keeping bees, making goat milk soap, and trimming goat hooves, but I’m sure I missed a few.

These fine folks did much prep work to prepare the farm for 100 guests. They prepared part of the farm for camping and had massive piles of rocks and wood for campfires. They also offered food for all four days. Amazingly, this family would allow 100 mostly strangers to their farm, but even more impressive is that they were willing to share five generations of skills with us.

During the days, it was workshops and hay rides. When the sunset on this beautiful farm, it was time for campfires and gravy! There were no less than four fires each night, with different groups enjoying them. People floated back and forth to the fire pits sharing stories, bonding, or simply enjoying old friends for the first time.

This event felt like home to me. The Jones family has always treated me like family. The bear community is the best at making you feel like you belong.

Sunday morning of Midwest Bearfest came with a bit of a surprise. Farming Artist asked me to head a bible study. This request was a bit shocking to me; I’m no pastor. But I mustered up enough courage to do it, and it was actually quite comfortable. The bears volunteered to read passages with me and were very patient with my message. I have never done anything like this. It was humbling, and it strengthened my faith. I’m so glad I was asked to do it.

To the Jones family, we thank you for having us at your home. To the bears, thank you for showing up. As always, we thank our Lord for the opportunities he gives and the love he gives. I’m grateful for the opportunity to attend this event and grateful to meet all my old friends for the first time. Keep Krushing bears, Onward!

A look at This Year’s Fourth of July Northeast Crushfest

The event was planned and organized by several families from the northeast region and morphed from the epic party it was last year into a weekend festival of camping, games, education, fellowship, and good food.

This year the annual Northeast Crushfest was held at Bear Crest Farm in western Pennsylvania on the Fourth of July weekend. It sure was a weekend to remember for all those who attended. The event was planned and organized by several families from the northeast region and morphed from the epic party it was last year into a weekend festival of camping, games, education, fellowship, and good food. The first night everyone shared in a grand feast provided by the organizing families.


The campsites, nestled in a newly cleared corner of the property, looked like a wooded wonderland with lights strung through the trees. The hosts even built an outdoor shower for their guests.


There was never a dull moment with acres to explore and open fields to play in. Bears and cubs enjoyed plenty of lawn games and rounds of volleyball throughout the event. There was a giant downhill slip and slide for the kids and many organized games and activities throughout the weekend. The men continued the tradition of a tug-o-war and added kickball to the list of annual competitions. In addition, there were many skill demonstrations, including chicken culling and first aid. Fireside chats were enjoyed by many each evening. This regional festival is sure to continue evolving each year, and we can’t wait to see where these incredible bears take it next year!


We could write a lot more, but these epic video montages filmed and edited by Red Panda Bear speak for themselves!
