About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Agriculture
Occupation Mother and Farmer
Location Alberta, Canada
Introduction I'm a SAHM (stay at home Mom) on a small farm in Alberta, Canada, where we practice many self sufficiency skills and raise many types of livestock. Among the livestock we raise are: Registered Canadian Horses, milk cows, goats, pigs and chickens (for meat and eggs). I love to bake bread, make cheese, and can fruit and vegetables, as well as enjoying knitting, sewing and cross stitching (when I have time!) as we have five small children, 4 boys and 1 girl. I enjoy working with, and riding our horses, as well as all the other livestock we raise. There's always something going on on our farm!!
