  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 3 humans.. We raise Nigerian dwarf goats for milk & some cheese making. We have Livestock Guardian dogs,chickens,peacocks,pigs & bees. Our days are spent caring for animalsand learning to grow.We are building a tiny house & trying to harvest a ground spring for water.Hoping to get closer to self sufficiency every day.
    We share a meal together on our workdays.This all the food we provide unless we have food from the harvest to share. We are organically minded (and allergic)So we do not allow any synthetic chemicals/fragrances or smoking on the property.
