Diversification. Early in our marriage we learned that diversification was a key to success. When we purchased this hobby farm we tried to capitalize on everyone's strengths and likes, and that gave us all of the diversification we could handle. We grow most of our own food, including meat. We have fresh produce all summer long and most of the winter thanks to freezers and a good supply of canning jars. The animals on our farm supply us with eggs, meat, and dairy products.
We believe that God created everything to work in harmony. We use organic feed and supplement our animals with herbs. They are free to enjoy the outdoors, summer or winter, and enjoy the grass and weeds that grow on our farm.
Come and take a look at the site and see all that we have on our farm.
We believe in keeping our hands busy. Whenever we are sitting we are doing something with our hands. We knit, crochet, scrapbook, cross stitch, embroider, paint, paper embroider, sew, and make cards. If you have any requests for a particular item, let us know. We probably already know how to do it or can figure it out. Our daughters have won many ribbons at the fair with their craft items, including a few things that went to state fair.
When we were expecting Seth, the girls sewed, knitted, and crocheted most of his newborn items. They also sewed their mother's maternity wardrobe. She was the best dressed pregnant lady around!
