A couple of years ago my husband and I took a good look at where we were headed as a family. We decided we wanted to take a step back from the world. We got a few chickens. We liked that so we tilled up about a third of our backyard and turned it into a garden. Next, we got some rabbits and shortly thereafter, some goats. Along the way we’ve learned a ton and most of all we’ve become closer as a family. It’s been an adventure to say the least, and we’ve loved every minute, well, almost every minute. Now, I feel like it’s time to share just a bit of what we’ve learned along the way.
