Starting again with our own small farm in the Midwest.
Here we are starting our own small farm in a new part of the country. My family decided to move back east to Indiana from Oregon where we have lived for the last 9+ years. We sold the cows, goats, pigs, chickens, and equipment and loaded up what was left, to arrive here in Indiana around mid July. Whew!!! What a hot time to arrive. We had gotten used to the mild Oregon weather, and these hot, humid Indiana days about take our breath away. Anyhow, we have landed here on a 26 acre farm that we plan on making our own, using the principles we have learned and have taught. We have lots of work to do getting our place ready for cows, pigs, chickens, sheep and possibly some other furry critters. Here we go; follow along with this blog and you will travel with us through each phase of our own personal journey starting, managing, and profiting from our own small farm.
