For the Home

In 2011 my husband and I took over his family farm! Actually I think that technically it’s ranch. We raise cattle, pure bred Black Angus to be exact. My husband’s father had turned it into more of a retirement project and so we are currently building our herd back up from 65 to hopefully somewhere near 100 in the next few years. We are by no means a large opperation compared to some but still large enough for me.

If you like you can follow along with me as I learn the in’s and out’s of farm life. I was born and raised in the city and I tell you it is a whole different world out here. I love the peace and freedom. In the country people’s priorities seem to make more sense. It truly isn’t all about money out here. I have lots of plans to farm it up so hopefully this will grow to be an interesting section of the blog! Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy and maybe even pick up some interesting tips from me too!

Update 2013: Running an old farm is an expensive business. They say you can make a small fortune as a farmer but only if you start out with a large one.

I moved back to the city and started working again. There is no shortage of success or opportunity in this city. My husband and I thought that the very best thing we could do was to bring both worlds together. He runs the farm I run our house in the city and we bounce back and forth between the two. It’s a great way to live.

  1. How exciting! I can’t wait to hear about your adventure.
    This spring, after 4 years since the idea’s inception and 8 years since moving back to the farm MY hubby grew up on, i bought myself a small herd of Red Devon cattle.
    I too was raised in the city and i think this is the best thing i have ever done.
    everyday i learn SOMETHING and every day i thank the powers that be that i am lucky enough to be on this farm with these animals at this time.
    best of luck in your endeavor – can’t wait to hear of your progress.

    • Wow! That really is exciting! I can’t believe that there is someone out there doing excatly the same farm stuff that we’re doing here! I feel very lucky to be here too. I have to say that my farm adventures have been sidelined right now for me to focus on my baby adventures. But this time next year she’ll be old enough for me to do a little more on the farm. I really hope to get chickens next spring! Good luck to you too! Let me know how things are going with you too!
