Here we are at the end of 2012 and I have been a farmer for almost 3 years now. I love it..... my heart craves it.... it is who I am. Not sure how I would describe myself anymore without the word farmer in it.
We are now at our home in Kentucky, and we have been busy working on pulling out carpets, replacing subfloors, painting and moving all our stuff into place. Hard work, but we are hoping that this is our forever home now. We have 50 acres here and it is almost completely land locked which we love. Our animals will be behind the house, and nobody will hear or know that they are there.
Our gardens and orchards will be in the front closer to the water supply. It is such a difference for me to live on our farm- to be able to look out the window (albeit, dirty) and see our animals grazing. To leave my window open at night to be able to hear the dogs barking and keeping predators at bay.
I will post more on specifics in the future- maybe not everyday, but more frequently than once every two years.
