"Learn by doing."

Animal Husbandry

Our wealth of knowledge was learned by wisdom (other people’s mistakes) and experience (our own mistakes). We learned a great deal when we dairy farmed for several years. When we left that profession, we down-sized to a small hobby farm. It appears that once farming is in your blood, it never leaves. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Lessons to be learned on our hobby farm include:

  • Milking and Butchering Goats
  • Raising, Feeding, and Butchering Chickens
  • Egg Production
  • Raising Honey Bees
