Some very exciting movements are happening on the farm! We just poured concrete , all under roof. It’s actually amazing how much cooler everything is under shade.
This is wonderful progress. With all the rearranging we did along with pouring the concrete, we will have more pasture for our meat chickens. Just as I stated before in my egg post, being forced to share small spaces with several other birds is detrimental to their health. And if that isn’t reason enough to be infuriated (it is for us), unhealthy animals leads to unhealthy food.
This increased space also means additional room for processing meats. My husband will either deny it or have no comment to it, but I’m pretty sure that means if he finds new meat processing “toys” we’ll actually have a place to put them.
This will provide extra storage. This makes me happy because that will free up some of MY space I use.
The most exciting opportunity this expansion creates is the ability to teach classes. In the future, my husband and the butcher we work with would love to teach meat processing classes. I am looking into providing classes based around creating and storing herbal remedies.
And may I just add…
Doesn’t it just look great? We’re very excited. We’re looking at other future expansions, but this is a good start.
In the future, we would love to add space on our property to efficiently and safely make soap. I would love to have my own little “witch’s cottage” to keep my herbal remedies in one organized space, with space to make them as well.
Follow us as we update more on how we organize and expand our space on the farm. With expansion comes more opportunities
