Homesteading, Organic Gardening, How to Farm, Preparedness, Self-Reliance
We are a small hobby farm sitting on 12 beautiful acres, with 6 precious homeschooled children who fill our barn and home with laughter (and crying). We currently keep a happy flock of 80 free range chickens, too many lucky roosters, 7 chattering ducks and manage a rabbitry of heritage breed Beveren and American Chinchilla meat rabbits. The farm is also home to our dutiful Australian Shepherd, one stinker of a Golden puppy, and a grumpy old mutt - who all love to chase the most excellent barn/lap cat in the world. We grow all of our food in the garden w/o the use of chemicals and use the manure from our rabbits and chickens to kick the garden up a knotch.
Having a farm is extremely hard work. But it is the most rewarding work in the world.
