Our Alternative Building Adventure . . .

We want to be conscious of alternative ways to protect our home and others around us by recycling, reusing and being responsible. We are not out to save the earth with alternative energies but we do believe in utilizing our resources as wisely as possible. We are interested in any new technologies, especially those gadgets, widgets and thingy-da-bobs that save and improve efficiency, but have little consequences to those in the neighborhood. Sure, we could build a manure farm and harvest methane gas for heating and cooking, but the neighbors might object to the odoriferous emanations. ...Read More

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Raising Farm Animals . . .

We have a saying, “If it can’t produce for the family, we don’t need it.” The chickens produce eggs, meat and more chickens. The goats produce milk, meat, and more goats. The pigs produce meat and more pigs. The cattle…well, you get the point.
