We are just beginning our journey to a simpler way of life. We want to share with everyone our path to a simpler way of life through homesteading and permaculture. My wife, LeAnn, and I have always wanted to raise our own food and raise our own animals on a small farm. We both grew up raising animals or growing our own food so this new chapter in our lives will enable us to expand on this goal.
As with any new idea, having a plan is the biggest first step. This blog will allow us to pass along our journey to anyone looking for something similar. We will be posting new blog entries weekly (or as often as time allows us) along with pictures of our progress. Our homestead blog will cover many topics such as Aquaponics/Permaculture, water storage, solar power, how to raise farm animals (like chickens, pigs, goats, and maybe even a cow or two), and how to get out of debt. We hope you enjoy the journey and maybe learn something along the way.
We already have a growing social media presence on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Pinterest. We will also be working with great companies like Amazon.com and YouTube in the hopes these ventures can help us afford this website and help us earn a little online income for our many projects. If you are looking for a book or some of the equipment we use on the farm, please use the links and advertisements found on the site.
