My hubby and I live on a small farm have goats, horses, dogs, cats and soon, chickens. We garden and can. I am also trying my hand at cheesemaking !
We would love to hear your ideas for the homestead. Welcome ! Come sit a spell with us.

New farm member !

By Millie Johnson - Oct 17, 2014

Actually two ! The first is a puppy that came from a farm, so she is good with the critters. She is half Australian Shepard and the rest unknown. She has a great personality ! We named her Sheila.
The other newbie is Jacob. We will be picking him up tomorrow...
