Already on the self-sufficient road, thinking about or just interested. Maybe you just want a few ideas and tips on gardening, animal husbandry, budgeting, living frugally, being environmentally responsible, and good old home cooking and baking.

The latest feathery additions
Our poultry numbers are on the increase with the addition of 20 meat chicks and 10 guinea fowl keets. A couple of meat chick hens will no doubt be added to out heritage layer flock for future production but the rest, well, lets say they will have a happy life for a short while.
The guinea fowl will willingly gobble up the ticks, pesky mosquitoes and anything else that crosses their path. They bring much joy to our new homestead :)
