Hi everyone, this is Erica the Farmer. This is my very first blog post! How exciting!
I’d like to welcome you to our humble little homestead-farm. We are proud of what we are doing, and so excited to get to share our journey, and our products, with you.
Years ago, Brian and I were both dealing with crises of health. Despite following the doctors’ orders and exercising, we were both tired, sick, and unhappy. Through a series of aha! moments, we realized that, for us, the key to happiness and good health was in growing our own food. Not long after, we started having friends and family over to enjoy the fruits of our labor. We were immediately inundated with requests for our meat, milk, eggs, and produce!
For now, Brian and I work off the farm part of the time. We are working hard to make our dream of quitting our jobs to be full-time farmers come true. This blog is a record of our journey from ‘Part-Time Farming’ to full time stewards of the land and animals (and beyond!). We are busy 7 days a week, 365 days a year, growing and raising the best food we can, because we think it’s the right thing to do. Most of what we do is hard, either mentally, physically, or emotionally, but it is a labor of love.
Come along with us on this crazy ride – there will be cute baby pictures, recipes, craft ideas, how-to articles, animal husbandry lessons, and best of all, the honest joy, comedy, humility, and sorrow that come with being part-time farmers.
