"Traveling in a purposeful manner, toward an unknown destination."
We don't exactly know where we are going, or what it will look like when we get there. Most of the time we lay out the grand plan, and things get in the way. We think that it makes sense to do this thing before that thing, and end up adding something else entirely different next, because the opportunity presented, or because something interfered with the things we had already considered.
Our little homestead/farm is definitely freeform design. We could also call it a flexible career path. We sell what we have that we can sell. We also sell a few products that we carry because they sell well. You may be sure that our inventory will change from month to month.
You can also be sure that all of our products and services are the best we can provide. They are often imperfect, because we live in imperfect circumstances. But they are good.
Our chickens may be no special breed, but they are cared for and kept healthy. They are fed as naturally as we possibly can feed them, and with as much non-commercial feed as possible. When we cannot free range them, we keep them in a coop with plenty of sunlight and fresh air.
Our rabbits are raised in cages. It is the only way we can raise rabbits at this time. They are sheltered from severe winds, but exposed to plenty of fresh air and sunlight. We feed them a range of foods, as naturally as we are able, with as little commercial feed as we can.
The other poultry and livestock we raise are similarly cared for. Even the snails that live in a large jar in the house, and eat aquatic plants that grow in their jar.
Our gardens don't have chemicals used on them. Who needs chemical fertilizer when you have rabbits? The only thing on our farm that we use chemicals on is the fire ants. Just no other way to stop the little buggers from killing baby animals.
I can't tell you what our plans are for growth, they are subject to change. I can't tell you where we are going. But I can promise I'll let you know when we get there.
