We are a small family homestead, we raise as much of our own food as we can while homeschooling our children. Aside from vegetables we grow; chickens, ducks, rabbits and will be adding sheep soon. Jason teaches drum lessons locally and we have many instruments in our home should you like to make music or learn how. Ellen recently got a kiln and is doing a little experimenting with recycling glass.
