  • ashollmannI love watching my children come home from school and run straight to the goats and chickens. I love interacting with the animals everyday. Even the trips to get them fresh water doesn't feel like a chore. I am also a huge fan of being able to hang clothes on the line and have fresh real food.
  • melissa.anne.williamsBeekeeping. Definitely. Although the cheesmaking, gardening, baby rearing, cooking and playing are up there too... along with midwifery to the animals if and when they need a little encouragement. 💕
