Im a FULL FULL time mommy and milk maker and loving wife to 5 wonderful boys and 1 neato little girl and one extremely wonderful man. Our oldest (14) to the youngest (1).
My husband and I have a very simple life philosophy, and that is to get back to basics as much as we can. We live, and are currently developing as many features as we can, to live completely off the land. We own a wood boiler for heat in the home, pump water from our well, we use solar power to run electricity and have an enormous garden filled with heirloom plants and currently working towards an all year around greenhouse. We hunt for our meat and raise our own livestock and harvest our own eggs and hang our laundry in the sun to dry. Not to mention my husband mills all the wood we need to create all these projects on our mill from the trees that grow on our land! He has been working on many things, but trying to finish our 150 year old barn conversion that we call “home”. We are looking into a greenhouse and making a root cellar. Its fun! But lots of work! And its work that we have happily chosen to do because we believe in a way of life that is completely disappearing from our existence. (more…)
