We are buying a house and eight acres in the country! Yes, I have lived in the country before, but never quite like this. Over two miles down a dirt road (yes, I know it's mostly gravel, but we still call them dirt roads.) Every day I want to leave my house that's about five miles driving on a dirt road, to get anywhere! WHEH! What was I thinking.
I was thinking about the peace and tranquility, land that is mine, chickens to have, goats to have, endless garden space, wild blackberries, space to roam. I am thinking I'm getting back to my roots, back to my tribe and I will love it.
Five miles of dirt roads always stopped me before. But today, in order to get something affordable, where I can have time to actually spend on my property, this is what I can have. This is what I want, this is my destiny. We have a lot of work to do, but we have a plan and we believe we are up for the challenge!!
These are the quick pictures I took as we were doing our final tour of the house. I promise some better pictures as our journey unfolds. I would love to hear about your farming adventures, changes in lifestyle and how you've found peace and tranquility.
