As predicted this has been a slower month here on the homestead. Some months are just destined to be busier then others it seems like! That’s just the nature of homesteading today. With fall in the picture and the weather quickly turning cooler some activities are on the back burner. It’s unlikely that we will be adding any more livestock to the farm until spring, with the exception of raising some more quail and perhaps bringing a nice buck into our rabbit program. This is probably a good thing since the fall season also bring with it a lot of holiday fun. I love theRead More →

Since we have added quail to our homestead I have come to the conclusion that they are one of the best starter animals on a homestead. Raising quail in your backyard is perfect for those of you who want to raise your own meat or eggs but lack the room for larger poultry like chicken or ducks!

Things seem to be expanding quickly on the homestead! I expected this to be the case while getting our homesteading family set up but it will probably slow down as fall arrives and we settle down to wait. Waiting for plants to grow and animals to mature! While there are some projects that we can rush, mother nature isn’t one of them!
