This Week at Homegrown Self Reliance

We’ve had a pretty uneventful week here on the farm. It’s been raining quite a bit, so we haven’t gotten a lot done. But the mobile butcher came and got our cow. I’m going to have to make some room in the freezer for all that beef!

We still haven’t caught our predator – we’ve set traps out, and put out deterrents, but he’s still hanging around! Luckily, the chickens are safe in their run and we haven’t lost any other animals.

I actually got a chance to write another post this week! It’s all about the farm animals that you should raise when you’re first starting your homestead. These are the easiest animals to raise, that still give you the biggest bang for your buck!
