As the seasons of life change, so do goals and motivations. We are in a season of big change for our farm and family. The biggest change is our decision to start homeschooling our children this year. We believe it was a calling from God to take this on and it has been so fulfilling already (and we have only just begun.) Our oldest son, 11 years old, has gained more knowledge and been on more adventures in a month of homeschooling than he has in a year in the public school system. We are in no way knocking those who choose to send their children to public school. We are just taking a different route to offer our children more experiences.
This year, we are transitioning our vision for the farm to be more oriented towards offering niche meats. While we plan on offering some chicks for sale, we are finding our passion to be in the business of offering fresh, quality food to our community. We plan on adding muscovy duck, pheasant, quail, and rabbit to our available fresh meats.
In the equestrian department, we are developing our infrastructure even further to offer affordable and engaging horse back riding lessons and training. This has been a life long dream and passion that is finally coming to fruition. We are excited to host clinics, homeschool classes, and are developing a mental health oasis for military and first responders (likeness to "Horses for Heroes").
In the interest of learning and sharing our knowledge and experience, we are looking forward to offering homeschooling classes (of which traditionally schooled children will be welcome to as well) which will incorporate all of the animals on the farm. With any luck, we will be able to inspire future farmers to pursue their dreams.
Stay tuned for more info!
