Hi :) Just introducing myself.

Not sure what really goes here, but here goes. we are trying to be a self sustaining family here in the Pacific Northwest and just got the first milk cow in April (now up to three) so found this sight while looking for Cheese recipes for Raw milk. We also have Beef Cattle, Pigs, Chickens, Garden and do a lot of Herbal remedies so will be looking into some of that as well. Stop in say hi anytime and I am excited to be a new part of this group. Have a great day.

Hello and welcome
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Welcome to D.C.!
Self-sufficiency is a wonderful goal. I wish you success!

Thanks all for the warm welcome, Yes hoot, I agree and thanks for the encouragement! Have been working on it awhile now and hopefully just a few more months of gathering things to be off the grid. Although at times it seems like they just keep pulling ya back in. lol

welcome, kelly.

very interesting intro.

self sufficiency is an admirable goal.

being "off the grid" might be a poor choice of words at an internet site. no offense intended, but it's incongruous in it's nature. lol.

i hope we can hear more of your exploits in self sufficiency. i'm very interested (umm, but not in an intrusive way, lol).
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Welcome Kelly. I had a goat this week (friends staying with us because of fire evacuations), and it was kind of fun. It was just a pigmy goat, but I could get used to farm animals again ( I grew up on a farm), and I do like to grow veggies. Can't wait to hear stories of how things are going for you.

No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!
