we did everything from buying a tractor, to excavating our yard, to building fences and setting up a red-neck cattle chute. my husband also spent 3 weeks working up in camps for the forest fires and returning home to work for BCAS.
we raised over 125 poultry, took care of numerous livestock and butchered pigs. farm life is day in and day out, we're used to it but we took on even more work buying this farm and expanding our stock. we also now have a baby foal as a mare i bought at auction ended up pregnant. now we're into fall and it's hurry up and finish everything before it freezes, which it's been trying to do!
it's literally insane how much money we have invested in this property. everywhere you look, you see our money, which I have to say, is better than NOT seeing where your money is going.
Our hobby farm is not cheap but it is amazing getting to live here everyday, walk outside and be like "this is ours".
I am constantly reminded of when I was young (earliest memory of this is around 9 years old) and dreaming of my one-day farm. I wanted to raise performance horses and I can seriously see myself doing that in the next years to come. I'm absolutely in love with the idea and the further developments to our farm!
