Puppy_girl, start small and learn as you go.  I hope a small farm finds you some day. 

HSG and Kaz, thanks so much!  It's been quite an experience and keeps us busy.  We don't play golf so have found this to occupy our time.   Cheesy

This is such a cool summary of all of the wonderful things that happen at MissingWillow farm. I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to bring the bees home Smiley.

Wow, that looks amazing & an awful lot of hard work. 

I daydream about having a small croft and being a little self-sufficient, so it is wonderful to see a glimpse into your life.

Ps) I just LOVE that goats will stand on ANYTHING!  They really crack me up  Cheesy

Thanks much!  Trekky, I'd love to nab one of those giant cable spools for our goats.  Or a see saw.   Grin

Thanks so much for sharing this with us! I love reading it all and going through the pictures makes it more alive!

My partner would love to live like this, but I'm not with him... Not enough space in the Netherlands (and way too many rules and restrictions) but I wouldn't want to emigrate to Norway (like he wants to) or Canada or so... I would get so homesick, I'm sure.

I visit your blog now and then, not so often last few weeks and I'm a huge fan of you and your farm!

You, your husband and all your animals rock!  Cheesy

And yes, I like goats standing on whatever too, haha!

So much awesomeness in one place!

I would love to bring elements of sustainability into my yard here in NJ. When we're ready, I know where to go for advice! Though we'll never approach the scale of your awesome!

Thanks for sharing and for being so generous with your expertise!

I love that you check out my farm blog on occasion all the way from the Netherlands, wendiek. 

I'd be happy to advise you some day, Abbeeroad.  NJ has a great climate for gardening!  Do you grow vegetables or herbs in pots?

I used to have an outdoor garden and some herbs in pots. We are kind of on a garden sabbatical at the moment, but definitely hoping to reinstate the garden next year! I don't have the greenest of thumbs, but I'm enthusiastic!

Thanks for being an inspiration! I'll be sure to shoot you a PM! Wink

Darn. Can I move in with you? I am a good cook and do laundry well  Grin Just kidding. But it looks like you have a wonderful life. And I love goats and sheep. Wonderful job, and I hope for you the best in the next seasons.
