The Backyard Farming Connection

By Gretchen

Gretchen lives in Upstate NY with her husband and 3 young children on an emerging 2 ½ acre homestead.  They strive to spend their days living simply and joyfully by living closer to the earth, regaining homesteading skills, and strengthening family connections through farming.  When she’s not chasing after her children, you can find her in the pasture visiting the animals, weeding the never ending horsetail in the gardens, or impulsively beginning a new outdoor project.  Join Gretchen as she digs deeper into the ideas, knowledge, and skills of the homesteader on her blog at The Backyard Farming Connection.
