Homesteading and Livestock

Self-reliance and sustainability in the 21st century.


A Month in the Life on the Homestead

 farm

February was a jam-packed month for us as our homestead expanded greatly. We acquired many animals, watched kids and kits be born and unfortunately, endured death of animals as well. It was filled with joy and sorrow.

In this video, I narrate about some of the highlights that we experienced along the way. I talk about our acquisition of livestock guardian dogs and how they are getting spun up on their duties here on the farm. I talk about our meat rabbit operation and how that is going as well as many other topics associated with our homestead.

We love homesteading for many reasons but it certainly gives us a sense of usefulness and we are connected to our food like only one who raises their own animals to include slaughter can understand. Enjoy our Month in the Life and subscribe to our youtube channel!

Thanks!
