Day 11 – Icing on the Cake

Ultimate Blog Challenge – Day 11

So what is the best part of this homestead/farm? I get asked this a lot. I’ve been told that it’s too much work and not enough free time, however, that is not the case. Or at least I don’t think so. So what is the best part of what we do? I would have to say the babies!

Of course I would say babies, they are adorable. Who doesn’t like babies? Of course getting to that point is a bit of work, but it’s worth the payoff in the end. It can be frustrating waiting for them too. We have a goat that is still holding hers hostage but is due any day. I can’t wait to see her kids. We generally let the momma’s raise them and just make sure to handle them a lot so they are just as friendly as bottle fed goats. I’ve had great success with this.

On the farm/homestead, the biggest payoff is really everything. Everything we do that brings us closer to self-sufficiency. The animals, the garden, water conservation – it all goes into the final payoff, but I still say the babies are  icing on the cake for owning our farm/homestead. They make everything so worth while. To watch them grow and play is so much fun and makes all the work so worth it.

What would you call the icing on the cake where you are? I would love to hear you on this, leave a comment below and let me know!

Have a great day!
