My husband and I own a small hobby farm in Southwest Virginia. I want to see us grow into a fully operational self sustainable homestead with a front yard farm stand.
It is difficult to make a profit with a small scale homestead when your first priority is to provide for your own family. It doesn't leave much for profit to offset costs. I feel confident that Wealthy Affiliate is the answer to closing that gap while also giving us the opportunity to share our story.
My grandpa bought the 10 acre farm in 1994 when I was seven years old. I grew up playing here. Learning to ride horses, working hard, loving the land, it was a second home. In November 2014 Pa passed away. The land went to my step Grandmother, but I continued to work and love the land as I always had.
Four years later in 2018 the property was put up for sale. It was that moment when I truly realized how much this place means to me. Pa had shaped my life in many ways, and I wanted to honor him by continuing his legacy. My husband and I decided to purchase. We both feel home here and want our roots here.
I love to garden, raise animals, cook from scratch, be close to nature, and live with a light foot print on the Earth that provides for us. What is your passion?
