A full day on the homestead


This past weekend we were finally able to spend an entire day on our property! It was wonderful to get away from the city noises and get our hands dirty in our very own soil. While the plan is to locate the home in the pasture area, our current need was for a location to camp in and operate from. We found a beautiful clearing and our first chore was to cut a trail for easier access.

Once that was complete we put up some shade, carried in the water and started exploring. There are definitely areas that we want to get into, but it is going to take time to cut through the brush to get there. Anyone want to mail me a chainsaw? 🙂

Our youngest son spent the day with us and he had the time of his life (okay, he isn’t all that old yet) playing in the dirt, breaking sticks, watching daddy hack away at tree limbs and in awe at the power of his momma as she toppled a few dead trees.

Here is a short video of the day and there will definitely be more to follow!

  1. Glad to see another family starting a similar journey. Looks like you guys got yourselves a great spot. We also have a youngster but a little younger than your son, she’s only 14 months. Good luck with your new land.

  2. So cool! I jumped over here after you commented on my Baldwinacres post! You are truly homesteading from scratch… it’s awesome! I will tell you our two Jacobs Sheep are doing a good job of eating our acreage down!!

    • We definitely got what we wanted, a blank canvas! I have watched videos and read blogs of others and am somewhat jealous of the old treasure they have found on their previously occupied homesteads. So far all I’ve found is a waterlogged VHS tape of someone’s vacation and an old decomposing boot 🙂 It is always exciting to be out there though and can’t wait for us to start making a life for ourselves on the farm.
