Spring is here, and that means it’s time for a backyard farm tour!
Everything is flourishing here on our farm in Arizona, and before it gets blistering hot, I thought we’d better do a quick tour of the place.
Currently we’ve got 30 fruit & nut trees, egg-laying chickens, milking goats, a veggie garden, and more!
We’ve got lots of plans this year *cough*pond*cough, so come join me and see our progress thus far!
Watch our video below of our tour.
I have been watching your vlog for over a year now, and I just love it. I have an urban garden, and I used to have chickens, but our homeowners association made us give them up after we had them a year and a half.
I loved having chickens, and I am pretty sure I would love goats too. But for now, I will watch and learn.
On my gosh you’re living my dream and I live in az too! will you be my best friend? Lol. This and some of your other articles (that I accidentally found) has truly inspired me.
Goat lovers are always BBFs! 😉
Thank you for the kind words and for reading and posting. So very much appreciated!

Danelle, what fun! I really enjoyed your backyard video presentation. Looks like you have embraced a really nice life for you and your family. Memories for everyone too. I lived on a farm when the kids were little and I miss it all the time. Seems like one thing you do on a farm is learn to cook with what you have, instead of always running to the grocery store. I remember when there was a surplus of eggs, I made a lot of homemade noodles with all those great egg yolks, and homemade angelfood cake with the whites.
It’s looking great! Hope Liddy had an amazing bd. Maybe its because I come from farmers or just plain love gardening… I want to see your garden grow. 🙂

How big is your lot? Also, what motivated you all to get goats? Fun? Milk? Other? Thanks!

We are on 1 acre, and we got started into this for health reasons, but now it’s just pure fun!

I really enjoy your videos and posts! My kids love watching your little ones being active on the farm. I would love to know how having the chickens tilling up your compost seems to be working for you. I’ve heard you really have to be cautious as some of the bacteria in the compost could make them sick and affect the eggs.
Thanks and keep up the good work ?
