Not too long ago, a fellow blogger had posted about how no matter what you call yourself we are all like minded and are striving for similar goals. His post made me think about what I am striving for and what would I call myself. Farmer, homesteader, prepper, ect. I am a homesteader! My goal is to have gardens that feed my family, goats that make cheese, milk, and babies, & chickens that provide eggs and meat. In the future I want all of my animals to sustain themselves in some way. Like trading eggs with my neighbor for grass fed beef or selling goat kids and goats milk soap to help with feed costs. I'm not there yet but I WILL BE! Until then I am enjoying my animals, I love picking flowers and vegetables from my garden for my table & watching my youngest daughter play with baby chicks after school, and giving my family and friends homemade gifts whenever I can. So what name would you give yourself?
