Last year we ventured into raising chickens for eggs.
We built a huge garden and this year are planting it full of things to eat and to preserve for the fall/winter.
We also have bought a cow with my in-laws for our beef this year.

I would love to go to this! Our family is learning more and more each year on how to be self sustainable and just like Missy, we too have chickens and a HUGE garden. I would love to expand out knowledge and learn even more ways to be self sustaining! :)

Any chance you have more tickets available? We have a small flock of chickens we raised from 5 day old chicks, an organic garden, rain barrels (even for the coop) & are replacing the existing landscape with native plants. Really would love to go to the fair!

Winner, I still haven't heard from you. Today is the last day I can mail out your tickets.
