img_0836We are a family in upstate New York raising,  growing and cooking our own food.   We have been working on our homestead for 20 years and have learned many things along the way. Hopefully our experiences will help you grow your own homestead. On our homestead we have pigs, chickens, and ducks. We have a small vineyard of 50 vines and also grow hops. We garden and preserve all of our own vegetables and some fruit. We have four hives and harvest honey . We also hunt and fish and best of all we cook it all in amazing and healthy ways.
