I’m Lindsay. Mother. Aspiring Farmer. Book Lover. Crafty Woman.
I created this blog in 2010, to record our family’s trials and triumphs as we transitioned from the city to the country. We moved from a very tiny 2-bdrm bungalow on a very tiny city lot, to a large old farmhouse on a little bit of land, and are doing what we can to sustain ourselves. It isn’t always easy!
I spin, knit, crochet, and sew. I keep chickens, ducks, goats, and one little Shetland ewe. I make most of my family’s food from scratch. My four small children are life learners (we are “unschooling”). I breastfeed and use cloth diapers. Our home is TV-free. That’s me in a nutshell.
I aspire to grow the majority of our food on our little farm and bring in a small income from my efforts. I welcome you to join us and learn with us as we journey through this life.
