The Homestead Life!

About Us

We are a veteran owned farm. We have 3 generations of family members who have served our country. We love the outdoors, farming, and teaching others.

We know how important it is for families and friends to have some down time together to make memories, reconnect, and to rejuvenate. We love to provide a place that affords all of that in an outdoorsy atmosphere.

The Need for Families to be Self-Sufficient

Farm and ranch families comprise 2% of the U.S. population. But by the year 2050 we will have almost 10 billion people globally. Farmers will have to increase food production by 70% to feed them all. Our mission is to share with others about homesteading, the great outdoors and self-sufficiency. We use many self-sufficiency skills on the farm such as gardening, animal husbandry, canning & preserving food, blacksmithing, slaughtering, butchering, and wine making.

 October Happenings on the Farm

We are working on fattening our farm animals up while we have an abundance of fresh green grass. We want them to go into winter looking as good as possible. We are also fattening piglets who are growing fast for our winter pork. They are Hampshire and Red Wattle cross. We also have 6 roosters who will be going in our freezer soon. We have 13 chicks who have joined our free range chicken flock. Hopefully they will grow up to be great egg layers. 

Around the farm you will see Sadie, our milk cow with her first calf. Also you will be able to see our other cows. In addition, we have lots of pigs and piglets who are growing fatter. We have a couple of goats and sheep and many free range chickens eating around the farm. 

 All in all we have had a good growing season in the garden. We have preserved our harvest by canning, making jelly, freezing, dehydrating, and making wine. Our biggest hurdle for the garden this month will probably be getting sufficient water for the few crops we still have producing. Our fall has been dry. We are irrigating our crops with our pond water. It is about time to clean out the garden beds and the greenhouse to prepare for the next season.
