When left to their own imagination...kids will use their imagination.
We ache for so much...less. We imagine unmowed fields, some woods, a maybe a pond or creek. We dream of days spent growing and then preserving 95% of all our own food. We want just enough animals, just enough square footage in our home, just enough clothes, just enough THINGS. Dwindling trips to stores and diminishing needs for outside merchandise.
We ache for ...more. More time for family, for reading, for writing, for riding,(and Yes I admit it, for soaping ) and for working our land the way we want. We want more time to worship, more time to sit around the table and visit without always thinking about all the things that must be done. More time to enjoy a few animals instead of being exhausted caring for so many.

I had taken all the Dramamine in the house. Anchors aweigh !
Its our own fault and our huge blessing. Our customers are outstanding , especially those we've had for several years, the ones who bought meat from us out of our basement freezers (braving spiders and crickets) and the ones who bought from me out of the cooler I would lug back and forth to work. Nurses and Doctors who valued raw milk, pastured meat and free range eggs were our best customers for several years. Without all of their support we never would have had the courage to approach restaurants, to reach out to grocery stores. They knew this business would grow and that I would leave my nursing career before I could even admit that to myself.
Our "success" was never just ours. HE helped the most and thus passing it on to another family another group of young ENERGETIC people will not be hard at all.
