Welcome to the Farmstead!!
Welcome to Sticks&Stones Farmstead! It’s so good to have you here. A few years ago, my husband and I bought this plot of land and this little house and, right away, the hopes and dreams of this farmstead reeled me in. With this blog, I am going to take you on the journey with me to grow and harvest our food and raise the farm kids strong and sufficient.
I come to this lifestyle with zero knowledge of farming or livestock raising. Everything I learn, I learn from pouring over homesteading books, magazines, and blogs, from the connections I have made in my little rural town, and from volunteering at the community garden. Over the past couple of years, I have acquired a menagerie of farm critters and planted some fruit trees, berries and brambles, and two futile gardens, attempted beekeeping, and have become an expert at failing, but in true grit fashion, always end up back on my feet. I am sure I will often be the exact example of what not to do, but eventually we’ll get it right, right?!
