Do seed catalogs make your little heart go pitty-pat?  Do you dream of chickens, goats, and geese? Then you have discovered a kindred spirit! My farm is my happy place and my passion. On these pages you’ll find lots of info about gardening, preserving and cooking the harvest, raising animals, and living a sustainable lifestyle. We’ve been homesteading for a few years now, and although I’ve learned tons, my goal is to keep learning new skills and use those skills to improve our land and our lives. Thanks for joining me on the journey!
