Our herd tested negative 2018 & 2019 for CAE, CL, Johnnes, Brucellosis and TB
Welcome to the Mitten Acres website! Our 10+ acre homestead is located in SE Michigan in
We began our homestead adventure from scratch in 2013 - hand clearing the land, designing and building our small home, laying out the gardens and orchard, building our chicken coops, putting up fencing for pastures and building our barn. Mitten Acres is a work in progress!
We love sharing our knowledge, our mistakes and promoting getting "back to basics" while trying to live a simpler, healthier and whenever possible, a natural, organic based lifestyle.
We began this website and our blog in mid-summer 2019 so it's a work in progress. Information and sources we post are from personal education, experience, recommended practices and what we consider reliable sources - i.e. extension services, veterinarians, foundations, publications and associations. Whenever possible, we list the sources we used.
We hope you find the information we share useful and informative. Take a look around and if you have any questions, please feel free to drop us a line under the "contact Us" tab above.
Thank you for stopping by!
