I am originally from Kansas City, Missouri, but always dreamed of living in the country. I met my husband in 2000 and he made my dreams come true. We now own 15 acres in Southern Ohio and have become self suffiecient. We process milk from our cow, gather eggs from our chickens, raise our own beef, pork and chicken and proccess the meat ourselves. Of course we have a garden, and I have learned how to can. I make most things from scratch as to me it taste better, it is fun and rewarding.
