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.
