We have spent many days working outside from dawn to dusk while others our age are golfing, playing cards, and taking life easy. For us, there is immense fulfillment in growing our food.
This is my journey of moving to the country and becoming a stay-at-home mom and hobby farmer. I was raising three small boys so why not add some animals to the mix.
Food is part of all our lives, a daily chore that has to be done to feed a family. Now that the family has grown it's time to explore food from all angles: history, new tastes and new cooking methods. Food is now a relaxing hobby.
We winterized the house and hoped for the best, but we didn’t want to leave.
Giving our grandchildren their first ever campfire was a joy.
