After a lot of research and discussion, my wife and I decided that we would try to grow as much of our own food as possible. Over the past year we have watched many documentaries and read a lot of books about cruelty to animals in slaughterhouses. It made us sick to our stomach, thinking about how these animals are treated. AND all of the antibiotics and hormones that are in our meat and vegetables, it really made us question what we were putting into our bodies.
We have decided to keep a blog about the changes we are making in case there are any other people out there that feel the same way we do. We will be discussing the changes that we will make, as well as posting pictures along the way. We feel that documenting out changes will be a great research for other people to use. Last year we did a small garden. I built four raised beds to grow our vegetables in. We will blog about what has gone well, what has not gone so well, and the changes we will make for this year.
Last year we also raised our own pigs for the first time and some egg layers. I had built a chicken coop for them last year, but found that it wasn’t great for the North Country Winters. I recently built a chicken tractor. It is the perfect size for our egg layers, we currently have 6 and that is plenty for the two of us.
Check our blog for updates on our garden, raising our own meat and everything in between! We will also be posting how-to’s to go along with what we post! We hope you find this information helpful and useful! Be sure to comment, subscribe, keep in touch. It’s time to take a stand and make YOUR FOOD, YOUR WAY!!!
