Getting back to basics in an urban setting

809761I love having chickens. I originally got chickens because I wanted the manure for my compost to feed into the garden. And of course I wanted fresh eggs from chickens that were happy, healthy, free ranged, and not fed any chemicals, hormones or pesticides. But I never imagined how much I would come to love them in such a short time! They are so fun to watch. They all have their own personalities. They are still pretty skittish but they will eat out of our hands if we are very still. I hope one day they will come to love and trust us.

My 3 children and I live on 14 acres in Savannah Ga. I have worked hard at turning the property into a thriving, self sufficient homestead. It has been a learning experience and a lot of hard work but its so worth it. I don't understand how our country became so consumer driven. We have lost so much of our production way of life. It is my goal to get back to basics any way that I can. My three children used be so hooked on TV, video games, computers, iphones and ipads. And while they still like those things, they now spend just as much time outside as they do inside. I hope by learning to raise chickens and rabbits, growing gardens, raising goats and riding horses and spending more time outdoors in general, my children will learn to love and appreciate a simpler way of life. I knew nothing about homesteading when I started this journey but I have learned so much and love every minute of it.
