I used to own chickens, and would like to do so again on a larger scale for egg consumption/sale
I would like to keep a few goats for milk to use to make cheese and soaps
We would like to grow vegetables and flowers and hers to be used in tinctures/lotions and for a farm stand.
Ultimately would like to license the kitchen for salsa-making (with our fresh-grown ingredients) and as a country kitchen for baked goods with possibly a small cafe/general store in which I can sell my homemade goods. Depending on the size of the home-possible bed and breakfast
Currently I am a preK teacher, who has been researching and practicing making my own homemade soaps lotions and tincture that I have been using personally for over a year. I have always enjoyed baking and receive rave reviews from friends, family members and co-workers for my breads and rolls, as does my husband for his salsa. We have long dreamed of being able to do these things for a living, and have decided it is time to get the ball rolling. We are currently learning about bee-keeping and soils and crops and proper composting practices so that we will have knowledge to work with and be successful. Our 2 children are grown and interested in working alongside us in this venture, and we foresee at some point being able to hire some local folk to help the "heavy lifting".
