Following a passion, seeking an outlet to express opinions about interests, an opportunity to meet new people, or searching for a way to give back to others; these are all good explanations for why I started a blog-based site in 2019, during a time when the internet was full of blogs.
I spend my weekdays behind a keyboard, but I spend my weekends looking for a way to unwind, connect with my family, and understand my purpose.
Growing up as a child, I was told that my family used to own and operate a large turkey farm in a near-by town – a property I had visited many times on weekends as a child. In 2004 I was gifted an opportunity to purchase what was left of the original farm, most of which had been sold off many years ago.
Over the years since, I started a family, built a home, and together, my wife and children and I have raised and kept turkey, chickens, guinea fowl, goats, hogs, and horses.
I spend a lot of time on YouTube, talking to others, raising livestock, putting up fence, fixing tractors, and learning general homesteading skills.
“Playing Farmer”, as I like to call it, on our little hobby farm helps me feel grounded. I have learned a lot, met some great people, grown relationships, and have seen some amazing things in the process.
I hope you find value in me sharing our experiences with you.
