OK today is day two of the ultimate blog challenge and we are supposed to write about why we do what we do. I mean for me that would be homesteading. And I guess we got into it by accident. I went to tractor supply one morning with my daughter and they had chickens and ducks. So I came home with eight chickens and two ducks.
That was kind of what started it. We have since got rid of the ducks because they are just very messy and my husband didn’t like the eggs so they didn’t have a purpose here. We have since acquired goats, a couple cattle, a couple pigs, and of course we have the chickens. We usually at this time of year would have a Turkey but it didn’t workout this year. We decided that we wanted to raise as much of our own food as possible and that was basically when the homestead started.
That was about 6 years ago. Now we have the gardens and the animals. Even though the garden isn’t doing so well this year we still have meat growing which is always a good thing here because that is the biggest part of our grocery bill.

Have a great day!
