Randomly Spotted on the Galactic Interweb…

Many of us fantasize about raising fiber animals for spinning and fiber arts, or having a little hobby farm full of cute animals. What does it really take to transition from city life to a more sustainable small farm? It sounds very romantic, but it’s also a lot of work. Jenna Woginrich-Storey did it, and she has a blog and a book about her experiences. She hopes to educate other would-be homesteaders about the joys and difficulties of making the transition from a city apartment to a small farm of her own.
Watch her talk about her experience with Cold Antler Farm:

    I have a bunch of chickens since the chicken range is a spacious. Am just wondering if something can be made from the feathers.

    This is my ultimate dream. I currently live in a small house with a small back yard and even smaller front yard.

    I have six alpacas, 23 angora rabbits, a dog, 2 children, and a husband.

    I want to get a couple Llamas, a couple Mini Llamas, a few Cashmere Goats, a few Angora Goats, etc.

    I’m going to get this book, hope to talk my husband into renting our house out and buying some land.
