Hello, We are Mike and Brenda. We decided to get away from the hustle of the big cities and found some land out in the country. So we decided to start homesteading. We wanted a simpler and better life for the whole family, we did not say it would be a easier life homesteading but a better life homesteading. We have two grown children that are with us, Mike`s brother is with us also. Daughter has two boys, they are 5 and 6, and as grandparents we spoil them every chance we get. We bought about 12 acres for our homestead and we are getting it together for homes and a garden and some chickens, cows and goats for some food, eggs, cheese and meat. Check out our contact page for a form to contact us or our e-mail address is also there too. Please check out the whole site there may be info that you might help you.
We are working on getting a homestead started. We will get some chickens first, then some cows and goats, get the garden planted. We will get a cow and a goat for milk and cheese. Homesteading is not new to me as I grew up on a working farm with my grandparents. We canned just about everything from tomatoes to peas and beans. I will get a smokehouse built to smoke our meat and some cheeses in. We are just stating this endevor and it will take some time, but in the long run to be self-reliant and self substainable as possible is the goal.
We have a You Tube channel it is Basics To Living and we are on facebook as Basics To Living also. You can go to the contact page and get our information and you can also contact us from there or send us a card or whatever to the mailing address there.
