|the curved house|
Ok, so heres the plan, we have lots of land......well enough, we have a little cottage ( that we live in ) that will become a holiday farm stay for income...,we have some sheep which is providing us... ( my lovely vegan and vegetarian friends my like to skip this next sentence )... sustenance , we have 2 old goats that live in luxury and provide not much but entertainment for the 3 year old, we have a variety of temperamental hens that select special days to provide eggs and even then we have to beat that pesky crow to get them, we have one retired horse that follows the sheep around, we have one kelpie that has lots and lots of energy with not much to do, and the guinea pig of course that is actually very helpful as he eats lots of grass through the bottom of the cage. But as we are building our farm we are also going to be building that (ABOVE) which will be our lovely new house with a view out to the mountains and built with strawbale, and in the mix there is Africa, which I will write about in a post soon.
What we want to do is have 30 Dorpa sheep, 15 Boer Goats, 50 hens, masses of fruit trees and a very large vegetable garden so this would equal = food, cheese, milk, fruit, eggs and lots of vegies.... which is lots of hard work!... ..but thats life .....people just choose to work hard at different things.
