Raise, Tend & Harvest Your Food to Feed Your Family Well
Some may know me as the crazy chicken ninja, but that’s not how my story started.
Many years ago, the Beautiful One (aka, my wife Rebekah) and I brought home four chickens and placed them in a vacant horse stall. Within the first hour, two of them literally “flew the coop” and were gone forever.
Doubts quickly set in at what we had gotten ourselves into.
With determination and massive (perhaps ungodly) amounts of effort, time and money, something surprising happened… I got really good at raising chickens for both meat and eggs.
Fast forward and our 140-acre farm has expanded to include cows (both meat and dairy), sheep, pigs, rabbits, turkeys, and countless other livestock, all with a steep learning curve of their own.
Join me on this homesteading journey and learn from my countless hours of research and “trial by fire.”
This life may not always look perfect, but it’s perfectly fitting for us, and we’re enjoying the journey.
