At the end of another week of heat advisories for our area, another week of non-stop work, another week of a few set backs, we sometimes wonder why we keep doing what we do here on the farm. I understand that this way of life is not for everyone.(I really understand). It is hard work. It is the life my husband and I choose and at the moment I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

Here are a few of the reasons why:

Have you ever...

Been so thankful for life that you thought you would burst?

Planting in the field

Loved a goat...

Pam, It's good to see a fellow southerner living our dream. We live in Deep South Alabama, and my wife and I are on our way to the debt-free, back to the basics lifestyle as well. We have a lot of learning to do when it comes to livestock. Our goal is a milk cow and chickens. We annually fill the freezer with enough deer meat and vegetables to last a year, but we would really like to have fresh eggs and milk. I see pictures of Jerseys. Does everyone on the farm like raw milk and are you able to earn a little pocket change from excess milk, butter or cheese? We're researching ways to add a little income on the farm.
