randy_gretchen_sheep_04_compressed

We are just two people living on a small chunk of the world trying to provide for ourselves as much as possible.  We have a small farm and raise sheep.  We have laying hens and raise broilers once or twice a year to fill our freezer.  We have a llama who guards our sheep, ten cats who….eat and sleep on our property, and three dogs (rescued) who keep us entertained.

 

We both work away from the home, and we both commute a long way to work.  We hope someday to be able to spend less time at work and more time doing what we love at home on our farm.  We hope to continue to diversify our farm to provide even more for ourselves and the animals we raise and care for.

 

Please join us on our journey to learn new skills to help us become less dependent on others, raise more of our own food, and strive to return to traditional foods by implementing a Nourishing Traditions diet.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
