For the last 2 and a half years we have been sharing our farm story through this podcast. And for the last 5 years we have been building a farm business from our homestead.
Now we are selling our farm…
In this episode of Homesteady we talk about the changes in our life that are moving us to sell our farm.
Why did we start farming?
This episode begins with our story and why we started farming. 6 years ago a baby boy came into our life.
That changed our viewpoint on our life. Suddenly we thought a lot more about the quality of our life, our food, and our time together.
And so to start feeding our family better food, and spend more time together, we decided to start farming.
Fast forward a few years and now we are running a farm business, a marketing business, raising 4 children, and producing a podcast and youtube channel.
This year it all became too much. With the birth of our 4th child, a baby boy, we decided we needed to simplify our life a bit. We both realized we have too many projects going on, and we need to re structure our life so as to be able to do what we set out to do a few years ago, spend more quality time with our family.
And thats where the idea for our big adventure came.
Kendra and I were both big travelers in our past. We still have that urge to travel, and now we would like to do that with our children.
We decided that it was time to hit the pause button on our fast pace life.
And a 6 month road trip with the kids would be the perfect way to do it!
My marketing business can be run from anywhere, so I can work from the road. And our kids are young enough to cram in a travel trailer, and go see the country!
This trip would allow us to spend less time worrying about work, the house, the property, animals, and more time to be together.
SO…. It meant we needed to downsize the farm.
We didn’t want to leave our animals in the care of a house sitter for 6 months. Nor did we want to worry about our home while we are away. The whole point of this trip is to spend more time together, focused on family, and not worries of life. So it meant we needed to cut some hard ties.
We sold our goats. And sheep.
The pigs went to the butcher. And now we just have our chickens, guineas and ducks.
The fowl will go to our family to watch for the 6 months.
And our home? Its now For Sale. You can learn more HERE.
Now the big question…
If we are selling the farm and hitting the road, what happens to Homesteady? Can we do a show about homesteading if we are not?
And what is our future plans…? After the 6 months on the road? Are we done homesteading for good? Will we farm again?
You will find out the answer to those questions in the next episode of Homesteady.
