Here we hope to slowly add items and information that relate to natural homesteading and herbal remedies (for both ourselves and our animals). Everything from some basic essential oils (EO) and their uses around the farm to the natural healing properties of herbs found all over our area! Also to be included: money saving tips for at home recipes and recycling ideas.
This will be a VERY time consuming project so with the time taken up by just the everyday things on the farm it may take some time to really get going on this page.
We do have some info started HERE on our FB page.
