Greetings from the Country

We have chosen to start this blog as a means of sharing the variety of experiences we have had and continue to have everyday on our farm. Our interests and future posts will include the following information, or at least that is the plan. Raising goats and the products we obtain from them including meat, milk, cheese, butter and yogurt; raising chickens and the benefit of our own meat and eggs; planting, harvesting and preserving a garden; ham radio and the importance of communication; being as self-sufficient as possible; the importance of being prepared for whatever may come our way; and enjoying life as it comes - everyday. Our life is based on a solid Christian foundation which provides us with direction and some peace of mind in today's questionable world.

Baby chicks we received in the mail

We will be making cheese again in the next few days and will show you how we do it.

Here are some of our kids. They provide us with a daily harvest.

We hope you enjoy our new site. Comments and recommendations are always appreciated.

  3. Great Blog, I enjoyed reading about your lifestyle and getting back to basics, along with the joy of using all your assets animals, and garden In everyday living. I also agree that Communication is very important in the scheme of things. Loved the goat cheese.

    1. We are glad you are enjoying the blog. My husband and I are new ham radio operators, but he has always played with radio communications. He will be sharing lots of information about the importance of communication. We plan to make cheese on Monday so look for a post on that soon. If there are any other topics you would like to hear about, please let us know. Your input is appreciated.
