Life on the farm

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on a farm or raise your own food that you know was raised right? I’m one of the lucky ones. My family owns a 10 acre farm in Oklahoma and we raise almost all of our own food. I will be posting tips and telling stories about life on our farm, year round. Hopefully, you will get a little glimpse of what that is like.

Our farm raises our food pretty much organically. We raise sheep for wool, chickens, turkeys and ducks for meat. We also have goats for meat and milk and we raise about a calf a year. We have a few gardens as well.

Because we raise our fruits and veggies with no pesticides, we have a wide variety of wildlife on our farm that had fled or died when the previous owner had owned the land. We find some cool creatures now like a frog  who lives underground most of the time. We dug him up when we were doing some planting. I hope you enjoy following along while I try to give you glimpses to life on a homesteading farm.

    1. It is hard at times. But, I have to remind myself why I was raising the animal to start with. I give the animals the very best care while they are alive and make sure that they don’t even know what happened when we butcher one to eat. We also don’t waste any part of the animal, so that helps emotionally too. I raise them most of the time and have another person who was not involved in bringing the animal up as much, be the one to butcher it.
