Welcome

I would like to invite you to our farm. All 2.5 acres of it! We have spent the past few years on a huge learning curve. Our curve has included gardening, raising milking goats, food storage, raising animals for food (a completely new concept), and fence building. Lots and LOTS of fence building!! These pictures give a better idea then my words ever could of life around here. On this site I plan to include information about how and why we did/do what we do.  As well as a journal of our adventures into 2010.

Some of our future plans include;

Cheese press creation, both to use ourselves and to sell .(hubby’s department)

Goat cheese,  soap making

Build a root cellar

Fix fences, build more

Raise pigs and chickens to butcher in the fall

Double garden size

Start some plants from seed (onion, tomato, broccoli, cauliflower). I tried this last year without great success. I didn’t have enough light and my tomato plants were leggy.  I have some ideas to fix the problem and will let you know how it goes.

Store LOTS of food for winter.

Thank you for coming along!

  3. Chelsea,

    Your web site is great. You remind me of a great friend back in Kelowna area. They have a goat milk farm. When you are interested in soap making give me a call. I have operated a small home based soap company for the last 8 years. Look forward to seeing you at the home school meetings again soon.

  4. Hi Chelsea, Daniel & family,

    What a wonderful idea, I love the photos and can’t wait to come up for a visit in the spring. It reminds me of
    our ranch in 100 Mile House.

    Take care & keep in touch:-)
    Love from Di

  6. Wow Chelsea, you are living my dream……the garden, the animals, the water so close by….
    I remember making my own yogurt and granola and saurkraut, canning like a mad fool, but all from my city lot. How blessed you are!
    So your mother’s daughter!
    I can hardly wait for summer to visit you and the brood. I fully intend to milk goats and press cheese and weed the garden, not to mention rocking the babies and roasting wieners with the kids.
    Love you so much!
