As we venture out to the world of RV ownership and travel, I still hold onto the hope that one day things will work out for us to own our own little homestead. We still strive to live a more self-sufficient lifestyle, by raising our own food. We are fortunate to have the space for a garden that provides us good food and will be adding some blueberry and raspberry bushes as well as a couple apple trees this spring. However, we don’t have the space or live in an area that allows us to raise any animals for food. I am fortunate though, to have connected with a wonderful woman by the name of Cecilia who is living the life I hope to one day live.
I’ve written about Cecilia and her little farm before. We’ve had the privilege to visit her farmy a couple of times. She also raised chickens and a pig for us. Her organic farming methods are exactly what have envisioned doing ourselves one day and I’m lucky to have her living near enough to us that we can visit, experience and learn from her.
Recently, she added to her little farm and I am experiencing a mixture of excitement and jealousy.
She is now raising GOATS!!!!!
If all goes well, the girls and I will be heading to the farmy in a couple weeks. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. We can enjoy the goat kids, visit the pigs, cows, chickens and dogs. Help out a little bit around the farm and create life-long memories – because as you know, I’m quite fond of finding opportunities to create great memories. And a side benefit is getting my farm fix.
If you also desire to have your own farm one day and would like to gain some farming experience, Cecilia offers others the opportunity to come stay at the farm for a week of experience. Just visit her blog here for more details.
The camera will join us on our farm field trip so stay tuned for pictures and our tales from a visit to the farmy.
How cute! Baby goats are precious! I hope you guys are able to be able to raise animals for food one day soon! We were in a similar situation for quite a few years where we wanted to raise animals for food but couldn’t have them where we lived. Luckily things worked out and we were able to move, but it felt like an eternity while we were waiting. Going through that wanting, dreaming, hoping of finding a place is very frustrating, so I understand how you feel.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
We began planning out our future homestead about 3 years ago and every time our plans came to a grinding halt, I became more and more frustrated.
I’m happy to hear that everything worked out for you. Hopefully, one day in the future, the same will work out for us.
Until then, life is to be lived and enjoyed. Now that I’ve taken a peek at your blog, I’ll have one more thing to read and enjoy 🙂
