We try to live a sustainable, frugal life with emphasis on care of the land and livestock. Anyone interested in learning more about us, sustainable agriculture and wanting to see a glimpse into the life of South Dakota ranchers should check in on us!
I post on a variety of topics focusing on organic methods, animal husbandry of cattle, goats, and chickens, improving land fertility, homemaking and food preservation skills.
My intent is to educate people about agricultural practices that work with nature and promote a healthy environment. These posts are also intended to encourage others to consider a life in agriculture and support of family owned and maintained farms and ranches.
I hope you’ll enjoy your journey with us!
