I decided that starting a new blog was in order after moving the goats to their new farm in Beloit, WI. The whole process is full of stress and full of hope, angst and gallons of ideas. This first post will be brief, like my first visit to the farm after closing. I have a lot to learn, here and at OC Acres. I have found some “mentors” in the form of other bloggers who have also turned to a homestead style life; living close to and growing as much of my own food as I can while leaving as small a footprint as I can on the environment I will leave behind me when I go.

Maybe you will follow me along the way. Maybe you won’t. I just hope it’s because you are too busy digging in the dirt, brushing a horse, or milking a goat that keeps you away!
