Welcome to Mitten Acres website!  Our homestead is located in SE Michigan in Milford Township.  Our suburban homestead is on 10+ acres where we are currently raising a small herd of ADGA, AGS, and NDGA registered and tested Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats, French Black Copper Marans and Honey Bees. We began our small farming 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, fencing pastures and building our barn.               Mitten Acres is a work in progress!

We love sharing our knowledge and promoting getting "back to basics" and living 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!
