Hi all, I am new to this site and pretty new to homesteading all together. My husband and I are originally from the rural St. Louis area and have started a homestead in north Alabama. We started with chickens and now have sheep, bees, pigs, two dogs, and a stray cat that took residency under the shed and keeps down the mice population in our chicken coop. I love the country life and want to learn every thing I can to be successful. Thank you all for allowing me to join your group!
