2017 was a big homesteading year for us. Most notably, it was our first year to raise pastured poultry from start to finish. What an adventure!
There were triumphs (chickens) and defeats (broccoli). We learned a lot and worked our tails off, and have spent the winter recuperating and gathering ideas and energy for year 2018 on the homestead.
