About Me

Homesteading can be a solitary affair and finding community on the homestead can be difficult. Something about living in tune with the land calls to our spirit like nothing else can. Sometimes, though, there comes an urge to find more than just one… to find folks with a same mind, who want to live away from the hustle and bustle of the city, who want to grow tremendous amounts of food, who want to raise their own meat animals. It was something we discussed on our second date.

He was a hunter living with his mom, brother, and uncles to help offset some bills; I was a gardener, stuck living in an apartment with a roommate, uncomfortable with so many people around me. We saw kindred spirits in each other, in that longing to be outside of the city, living on land that was oursbeing in our minds free.

There was always something that derailed us from getting where we wanted to be, but the dream never truly died. In the time between our initial moment of recognition of the desire to live off the land, and the moment we actually made the land purchase, I wanted to find the best local places from which to source food.

I wanted to build a support community, where we could turn for assistance, and in turn, would offer our help in exchange. The first task that I set for myself, was finding a local source for eggs. I spent countless hours online, looking for local farmers advertising their eggs for sale. I knew I wanted farm fresh; I knew I wanted to be able to talk directly to the farmer; and, honestly, I was hoping to find someone who would let us come and see their operation. That led me to a directory of local and some not quite so local farms that were selling meatsproduce, and some eggs.

However, what I was running into were programs that wanted to sell a share, or a half-share, of product for the summer time. In our yard in the city, I had a garden big enoughand planted intensely enough, that I could put up just about enough food for the winter and into the next growing season. Buying into a CSA share program was not what I was looking for. All this investigation on my part lead me to many Facebook s of farms in the province. And then, by sheer luck of the draw, I found the one farm that would eventually become my source for farm-fresh eggs … Ivy Hill Farm.

For the next two years, I bought eggs from her weekly. She invited us out to the farm to meet their animals and our families became friends. I will admit, I was the annoying friend always asking questions about every little farm-related thing.

From chickens to cattle to horses to feeds, if I thought of it, I asked her about it. Then, I learned about Open Farm Day. I felt like I hit the jackpot with this! We made our lists, we planned our day and went off to the farms that were interesting to us. At each one, we asked questions and learned everything we could in the time we had. This type of networking is invaluable, especially for anyone interested in getting into selling any extras, like meat and eggs. For us, the emphasis has been on the care protocols for animals.

Selling of anything has been secondary, because we wanted to be sure any animals we raised for consumption were raised in the best possible way, for ourselves and for the animals. For each of the farms we visited, I found their Facebook s and followed them. Then, I began to look at Facebook groups. Did you know there are Facebook groups for just about anything?

I was happily surprised to see so many agricultural ones, including many that cater to female farmers. I also found a few groups that catered to people in my local area. This, I discovered, could be a double-edged sword. Most of the people I met via the groups had been easy going, happy to share knowledge, or willing to host workshops for a small fee.

I have always thought that hosting a well-taught workshop for whatever skill one had was a great idea. Ultimately, I wanted to be able to grow my homestead from a small hobby into a business that sustained itself through sales and teaching, with a hint of agri-tourism thrown in.

Reactions ranged from surprise that I would charge for knowledge easily found on YouTube, to downright nasty and threatening messages. This one is most important: when you run into folks like that, those are not the people you want in your community. Weeding them out of your potential-homesteader garden early is critical. Undeterred, I continued to explore the buy-and-sell groups for free chat line new homestead area, and I have had some wonderful experiences.

Our greatest place for finding community, though, has been with our neighbours, and our local horse-community. Yes, horses on a homestead are luxuries, but, many of their needs are transferable to other livestock. Quality feed, good vet care, and knowledgeable advisors are all things that are vital to having happy, healthy livestock.

Truth be told, the love of horses is what started us on our journey into homesteading and farm life. Long before we bought our piece of land, our daughter was taking riding lessons, and the draw towards having our own horses, on our own land reignited our desire for living outside the city limits. Ultimately, it was through the folks who own the stable that we found our hay supplier. As everyone who has livestock knows, a reliable source for quality hay is worth its weight in gold.

Our first year with the horses, hay was a hit-or-miss situation. That year I burned about 10, pounds of hay. It was sheer luck that my husband was chatting with the barn manager at the stable, and mentioned we had this issue. She was sure their guy would have enough to be able to supply a hobby farm like ours, so she suggested we talk to the stable owner and get his. The rest is, as they say, history. We are lucky to have a reliable source for great hay. Similarly, we found our vet and our hoof care specialist via the local horse-community.

Our neighbours have been invaluable when it comes to help on the homestead. Being able to ask neighbours for ideas on who to use for these services has been, and continues to be, a great thing. And, there is the added bonus of keeping the community economy strong by using local people and their products. Not to mention the livestock communities, be they horse, pig, chicken, or cattle. Realistically, you get out of it what you put in—just like anything in life. Having those people who are willing to have your back when you need it is not something we can take for granted.
