We are a small homestead farm located in South Jersey. We've recently bought just under 8 acres in middle of no where farm country! Our ideal is to create a self sufficient homestead; with an eye towards sustainability, practicality, and respect for animals and nature. Little did we realize that starting this way of life was fascinating and educational for everyone else, not just us!

So far in just under 3 years of "backyard farming", we've given excess produce to friends, shared helpful advice and tutorials, and even had a small home-schooled group of kids come to the farm to learn!

Starting a farm and getting it initially established is a pricey endeavor. No matter how much it is "an investment for the future!"... it still makes the present quite a struggle. Though we tend to be private people, we realized that this is an opportunity to benefit everyone involved. We are looking to share our knowledge and our adventures, in exchange for sponsorship of our farm!

We will have content such as:

- Blog posts updating the current events at the farm
- "How to" videos for how to do things like chicken tractors, butchering, and gardening
- Livestreaming of special events like, chicks hatching or new animals arriving
- Q&As and AMAs... you have questions, we'll have answers!
- "Adopt an Animal": choose a specific animal on the farm, and you get to name it! In addition, we'll send you pictures and updates about your special farm friend
- Gift boxes! Get a monthly gift box of various rustic farm items. Presents could be a feather wreath one month, soap the next, jewelry, candles, or various household decorations!
- Farm shares: get a seasonal sampling of what we have to offer every month.

Invest in the farm, and you'll get a portion of what we get every month! Some months are leaner times than others... but when we get eggs, so do you! When we have fresh produce, you will too! When we do a butcher, you'll get meat.
Goals
$18 of $200 per month
The current task at hand is getting buildings built in a more permanent sense. When we first moved in, there was a rush to get everyone situated in accommodations, and not all accommodations were ideal. Now, a year and a half later, some of the "temporary" solutions are reaching their end.

On the list is:
- A more permanent rabbitry. The current one has a leaky roof, and non-ideal stacking of cages.
- A coop/roost for the turkeys. Currently their pen was for growing up poults, not big bird adults. They need a nicer permanent home.
- Breeding and grow out pens for chickens. The main coop is wonderful, but many of the side enclosures are very ramshackle...

For spring we'll be once more be getting sheep and pigs, this time around though the sheep will be permanent tenants, and thus will need better housing. We also need to remake the pig pen, as our last pig trashed it fairly thoroughly...

And I'd love to make the greenhouse that I've been collecting windows and glass for! 

The projects are never ending...
