    How This Couple Escaped Corporate Life with a Goat Farm

    How This Couple Escaped Corporate Life with a Goat Farm

    Years ago when Aaron and Liz started their first farm, they had no idea it would free them from corporate life. Fast forward years later, and these once "fake farmers" are now farming full time!
    Through their Syman Says Farms Youtube Channel, Liz and Aaron have opened up their home and farm to help teach and inspire the next generation of farmers. They feel a strong sense of purpose to give back and share their love animals and knowledge of husbandry with those who may never otherwise step foot on a farm.
    Together, they shared their tips and tricks of how they manage and keep their goats, chickens and rabbits healthy. In early 2019, Aaron suggested setting up a live stream in the goat barn during kidding season. What better way to educate than to share the birthing process Live?!? A few weeks before the first doe was due to kid, Aaron hit the button that would forever change everything!
    The Live Cam quickly became a place of refuge, peace, solitude and community to a great deal of people. Affectionately called Goat Aunties and Uncles, the "Village" supports, uplifts, celebrates, cries and laughs together daily. It's become a place of acceptance and healing.Aaron & Liz have received countless emails and messages of thanks and gratitude from people all over the world who have said the Live Cam and the goats literally saved their lives or allowed them to be strong enough to seek help for their own struggles.
    Liz & Aaron's passion for sharing their knowledge and animals with the community, quickly became about sharing the power of animal therapy AND husbandry with the world!In this episode we talk about their favorite dairy breeds of goats, selling farm products, and how that lead to them leaving corporate life behind!

    TRUTH VS MYTH... Idaho Pastured Pigs

    TRUTH VS MYTH... Idaho Pastured Pigs

    The IPP... the IDAHO PASTURED PIG. It has made quite a lot of noise in the homesteading world.

    There are a lot of big claims surrounding it. What is fact and what is myth?

    Today we share an interview on the channel with Mouse Creek Farm who has been raising these pigs for years.

    Kirstin answers lots of our IPP questions including do you have to supplement their diet or can they live off pasture alone? Do they ever root? And how is their meat production and quality?

    Devastating News about our Cow Ladybug

    Devastating News about our Cow Ladybug

    This week we got the worst news about our cow ladybug.
    A routine disease test for our cows showed that Ladybug may be sick with Johnes Disease.
     Johnes Disease is devastating. It is a wasting disease, that prevents a cow from absorbing nutrients from the food it is eating. It can infect a calf before it is even born, and yet it will not kill that animal for a few years. It lies, secretly, beyond detection, for years, and when some stressful event happens in the cows life, for example, a calving, like the one ladybug had back in the fall, the disease goes active and quickly can turn a healthy looking cow into a skeleton, killing somewhere around 90% of cows that test positive with it.
    Because it can infect a cow for years without killing it, it spreads through cow herds quite easily.
    It is believed that all major diary and beef herds have Johnes positive cows. That is specifically why, when we purchased our first dairy cow, we found a herd of cows that was believed to be free of all cow diseases, including Johnes. Sadly this appears not to have been the case.
    In this episode of the podcast we talk about the sad news, and what will happen going forward.
