My name is Leigh and my husband is Jared. We have been together for almost 20 years. We’ve got two
tornados boys, Chase and Jaxson and a ton of animals. It’s time to meet the chaos.
We started homesteading because we weren’t happy with the life we were “supposed” to live. Society tells us that we have to work in an office, warehouse, etc, get groceries at the store, only see our kids for a couple hours a night, and then do it all over again. We wanted something different.
So we bought our mini farm and have been working to turn it into our homestead. We have 10 goats, though that number changes depending on the season. There are approximately 50 poultry, again depends on the season and predator load. We’ve got 4 huge dogs, 2 cats, 4 bearded dragons and a snake.
We have learned a ton since being on the farm; from firewood to building and everything in between.
I started this blog to help new homesteaders learn as much as possible before diving in. When we were researching all the things that we wanted to do, paralysis by analysis became a real problem. We had so many ideas that we kind of froze.
So we sat down and really thought about the things we wanted to do, created our goals and got to work.
