My husband and I bought a 2.5 acre homestead in August of 2016. We have fig trees, blueberry, raspberry and blackberry bushes, a plum and pear tree and muscadine grapes. We are cultivating a medicinal herb garden and plant seasonal vegetables for our own supply. And now we have recently started raising ducks and we hope to add chickens and other birds to the collection.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences. I have worked for 10 years in the health care field as a triple registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. Registered in Abdomen, OB/GYN and Vascular. My husband, Darren, has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. He works full time for a Fire and Security company out of Little Rock.
I am currently working the farmstead full time, blogging and encouraging a life well lived. Our page and website will share our lives and all the things we are doing to learn how to live a more holistic sustainable lifestyle on our farmstead. It will also include things I have learned on the subject of health and wellness.
We are city folk turned homesteaders. Through our experiences and work on this homestead we hope to help and encourage others to begin eating clean, moving daily, praying often and loving much by living a sustainable, holistic lifestyle.
We may be newbies to the country life but we hope we can encourage you and help you to do the same no matter where you live. Hopefully through our experiences, good and bad, you will see how to incorporate some of the same things no matter where you live.
Since farming is seasonal we will be offering different produce and products for sale.
