    CJ discusses the chickens and how they are an entry point for homesteading.

    They don't require much space, they are very easy to care for, you get an immediate return on your efforts and these little dinos are really friendly and social.

    They really are the simplest way to start your journey into homesteading and producing your own food!

    Episode 3 - Motherhood and Farming

    CJ talks this week about what it's like to have kids on the farm and what that means for both mother and children. She covers having kids doing chores and the good and bad of the life cycle.

    Sometimes farming and motherhood is hard, but motherhood is hard anyway so you just have to pick your version of hard. Knowing that they understand where their food comes from and the process to get food to the table is going to serve them well in life.
