This blog is one of the steps we are taking to be more self-sustaining. We’re glad you are along for the ride!
Rachel has been a SAHM and a Humanities Teacher. Chris is a Welder and Fabricator as well as an expert in many of their fields like hydraulics, snow plows, auto mechanics,...We would prefer to live simply and spend every day together.
Our children are 6th grade to early college, as two boys and two girls.
We have gardened, hunted, canned, and created our whole life. We began raising chickens and turkeys last year. After a few close encounters with neighborhood raccoons we finally had a fully secure coop and we have added 18 more chickens, replaced the two turkeys, and have three ducks.
This blog covers all sorts of aspects of our life, but often relate directly to Homesteading.
