NEW AL HOMESTEAD - A FIXER UPPER

Welcome Hooterville - https://www.hootervillehomestead.com!  I am back, now that we have a long awaited property, I can concentrate on the homestead living aspect of life and blog.

It has only taken 17 years!! I have waited 17 years to finally move to a farm!  We settled in a new state  - 25+ acres - 2 ponds - 1 large barn (needs work) 

  • Chickens purchased - 10 to start
  • Planted 25 fruit tries so farm - 10 peach and 5 apple - 10 pear-  more coming... 
  • Can't wait to get the garden started! - so many plans in the works.
Husband has his area of the farm, he has his own orchard and various other trees to go along with his 'food plot" - always the hunter! 

My plan is to "pay it forward" - I want to provide a non-profit farm to help the community, with eggs, and various fruits and vegetables.

Stay tuned!

THANKSGIVING THANKFUL - GOD - FAMILY - FOOD - FRIENDS - GRATITUDE

 I am thankful!  I have a new Home State - a New Homestead - Renewed Relationships - a New Beginning! Excited for sure! 

I lived for 17 years in Virginia - it was such a horrible experience for me - from getting a very disfunction job with Dept. of Interior - working and living in a hostile environment - Non of this was pleasant, I was depressed, unhappy, miserable - Yet, I remain grateful for that experience, I learned much about myself, became a better person.  I guess I needed to be in that situation to get to where I am now! That is how God works - Grateful, Thankful!

My talented Daughter drew this!
