Thanks for joining us on what we hope will be an exciting journey! Despite the name, we plan to write about more than just chickens. Although, we agree chickens are clucking awesome!
Along with chickens, we also garden and raise bees on our half acre plot of land. If you did a double take when reading how small our parcel of land is- we agree! We have some plans in the works to potentially expand (more on that later), but for now we are doing the best we can with what we have.
In case you are thinking, “Well, Idiot Chicken, I can’t get more land. How the cluck can I grow food for my family?”.
Don’t worry. We know it is an affectionate term.
That is exactly what we hope to talk about here. Even if we can get our hands on more land, our open space will likely be limited for the foreseeable future. We are hoping to share information about what we have learned about yardsteading (growing as much food as you can in a small area). We want to take you with us as we learn even more!
This year (2020), we hope to talk about gardening and chicken keeping in small spaces, foraging, raising meat animals, and anything else we can think of related to yardsteading!
Please reach out to let us know if there is something you would like to read about.
Have a clucking awesome day!
