We moved to Fredericksburg, VA in the fall of 2013 from the more urban city of Arlington, VA to pursue a dream of establishing a small homestead where we can raise animals, grow a little of our own food and learn about homesteading. The stories posted on this blog document these adventures and we hope provides information to others wanting to do the same. Enjoy!
Matt was raised in the Amish country of Central Pennsylvania and was always surrounded by animals. He was member of 4-H and was ranked nationally as an equestrian but also raised chickens, turkeys, sheep and rabbits.
Raised just outside of Chicago, Jim never thought he'd be raising chickens! One too many documentaries about commercial chicken farms has forever changed his mind about grocery store eggs.
