So, we just recently moved, and it has finally stopped raining long enough for me to be able to snap a couple pretty pictures of the goats in their new "pasture" today! The "pasture" is roughly 100 feet by 200 feet, it looks so huge to me! I'm guessing 1/2 acre? I'll have to go walk it tomorrow and see. We still have to finish wrapping the back half with field fence, but it's pretty darn close to being done. Yay! And since we just moved we needed to build/ get our girls a place to get in out of the rain and to have their babies. And since we aren't on our permanent farm we wanted to do it as cheaply as possible, (however in hindsight I'd like to make it portable). I wanted an already built barn (like from Home Depot) but they were too expensive... so we decided to build it instead! My wonderful boyfriend built it for me from scratch! Love it!
In 2009, Steve and I moved to a rural rental on the outskirts of San Diego to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and to get away from the chemicals in our food and in our life. Little did we know that just a few years later we would be real farmers; growing fruits, vegetables and herbs, as well as many different kinds of chickens, ducks, turkey, bunnies, guineas, quail, goats and more! We left the suburbs for "Green Acres" and haven't looked back since!
