This is my very first post on the Canadian Preppers Network as a blog author... you can find the official version here.
I live on a farm. When I read those words a few years ago I would be awash with a longing that almost hurt. I wanted to be able to say that! Now I can.
I live with my family on a small farm surrounded by conservation lands. We raise chickens, ducks for meat and eggs and sheep. We also have a donkey, 6 barn cats and a spoiled city dog.
Life here is an amazing adventure of FINALLYS. We finally had room for a huge garden - that had lots of weeds in it this summer but actually produced quite well. We could finally have more animals than the 6 urban chickens of our city life. We could finally sit in our "backyard" and hear - silence... We could finally run out of the house in our pjs to feed the cats or get the mail! Well - it doesn't take much to make me happy!
I hope to share some of my adventures with you in the coming weeks. From food storage and canning to backyard chickens and beyond. I'm not an expert - just someone who loves to learn and happily lives on a farm.

I am a mom to many and a wife to my best friend. We live on 10 acres of heaven on a small farm that needs lots of work and will keep us busy for years! We love people coming to visit, animals and the peace and quiet that you can only appreciate after living in the city for 20 years. I love to write about our adventures in homesteading, country living, food storage, canning and emergency preparedness.
