We've been busy on the Homestead!

Since buying our land, we have hand-cleared a lot of the overgrown property, built our home, put in landscaping, planted a small fruit tree orchard, a few berry bushes, built 2 chicken coops, 2 small goat sheds, dug a pond, built a barn, put in a raised bed garden and started putting in pasture fencing - all in only six short years and most of it has been done by my husband and I while working full time. 

 

                We've definitely have had some challenges & difficulties along the way.

The good, the bad and the ugly.

              We hope to share our homesteading journey with you!

Buying Vacant Land

We purchased "raw" land and started from there.  We spent over a year hand clearing the property of scrub trees, poison ivy, and brambles to prepare the site for building our new home.

Heating with Wood

One of the most important things we addressed in our new home was having the ability to heat our new home with wood.  We have quite a supply of wood on the property so that reduces the cost of fuel to heat our home.  

Our New Pond

Although we have a large river behind our property, we did not have a water feature on our land.  We put in a  nice-sized pond that we have enjoyed for over 2 years now.  The pond is now home to frogs, turtles, ducks and Sand Cranes that come to visit the farm.

Our New Home

We finished our new home and began working on building a larger, more secure chicken coop after learning our property was actually a highway for numerous predators - Hawks, Eagles, Coyote, Foxes, Racoons, Opossums & snakes - We have them all!  

The Heart of Our Home

Another important aspect we wanted to address in our new home was the kitchen.  Our last home did not have a lot of room for canning, baking, cooking, food prep, and food storage so we took time to address those issues building our new home.
