Other Information: We are a homestead and have been working towards our current position for the last 11+ years, along with raising 3 daughters and homeschooling them. We currently raise, dairy goats, meat rabbits, heritage sheep, heritage chickens, and heritage turkeys. We have a small herb bed, and several garden areas, and fruit trees. We are a firm believer that everyone should grow some of their own food, and know where the rest of their food comes from. We also believe that growing food should only be done while working in conjunction with nature, only using what nature provides. We strive to utilize everything that is provided to us from the animals and plants in a way that benefits all that are around us. Examples would be weaving, fly tying, soap making, leather crafting, lotion making, herbal tinctures, etc.. We believe in mentoring and learning from others in this lifestyle so that they can pass on and share with everyone successes and failures. This is not a job to us, but a lifestyle that we constantly strive to learn more about and teach others at the same time.
