Bringing the food garden out of the back and into the lime light.

I went with Simply Living to see this Homestead. They do all the things that I have always dreamt of doing. Of course seeing it in real life I realize its probably more work than I could handle. But it was a wonderful day, meeting like minded people, drinking raw milk (yum), and getting a wicked sunburn! So glad I went.
This is one of their two cute mini donkeys. Followed by their giant hog.
They use this terrifying tower of doom to observe the wetlands they built on a part of their property.
These beauties are Dutch Belted Cows. A nearly extinct heirloom breed of cows. Good milkers and meat animals. Most heirloom breeds are hardy and dual purpose.
And this is a shot of their house. I LOVE the stairs.
Ran out of room for pics. Have to split this post up.
