Ultimate Blog Challenge – Day 9
Well for this prompt, it is supposed to be about travel, but we don’t do much of that because of the animals. So I decided to go with what our goals are for the homestead or “where are we going”. I think most start a homestead to become more self-sufficient. I would love to say that this is why we started as well, but it’s not. We got started mostly by accident I think.
It all started with baby chicks, well 8 chicks and 2 ducks. Those 8 chicks turned into 4 hens and 4 roosters. Both of the ducks were hens as well. It has gone from there. That was almost 8 years ago now. After that I got a couple goats. Then the pigs and the garden. But it all started with chickens. I still have a hard time believing that was almost 8 years ago.
So now that we’ve been doing this for a few years, I think the next step is to register our farm and hopefully start to profit from it. At least right now, this is the hope. We have pigs and goats that we are breeding, so the babies will be for sale. We also have the garden and the hope is to have extra that we can sell at the farmer’s market. So that is the hope on where we will go with this adventure.
If everything goes well the rest of this year, we should start making money from our farm for the first time this year. What are your goals for this year? I would love to hear from you, leave a comment below and let me know what your goals are for the rest of this year.
Have a great day!
