for people who love the littlest dairy goats
So, you think you'd like to live in the country, grow your own vegetables, milk goats, and raise chickens? We'll discuss the advantages and disadvantages of a homesteading lifestyle, and we'll talk about the practicalities of choosing your homestead and choosing livestock to fit your lifestyle, with an emphasis on heritage livestock.
Deborah Niemann-Boehle and her suburban family moved to 32 acres in the middle of nowhere in 2002 to begin a homesteading lifestyle. Nine years later they are producing all of their own meat, eggs, and dairy products, making soap, spinning their own wool into yarn, growing vegetables, making maple syrup, and living a more sustainable lifestyle on their homestead, Antiquity Oaks.
