My hubby and I live on a 89 acre farm that has belonged to each one of our families, at some point in time. It started with my grandmother, then his parents, now us. We took the farm over in 1989, when we came back home from a military life. We have always had this as our home of record, knowing that we would return. My hubby spent his youth here and when we married at the tender age of 16 and 17 we started our home on a piece of property here. Now in our 60’s we are starting a new beginning with retirement and budgeting. So garden and farm are even more important to us now.
We raise black angus cattle, for selling in spring and for butchering. We raise our butchering steers for all the kids along with us. We just sent one off to butcher. On the farm all our children are welcome to everything we grow or raise.
The garden is growing larger this year. we planted more fruit trees last fall and added more blackberries along with red raspberries. We enlarged our strawberry patch and will do some more this spring. Our goals this year, 2019 is to get more self sufficient here on the farm. We want to be able to grow and harvest at least 75 percent of our food, along with helping our children’s budget along the way.
Thank you so much for your visit, and please follow us as we start our new journey in life, retirement on the farm. We might be in our 60’s but a new life always awaits us. Thank you Lord!
