Hello! I've been lurking here for a long time and finally decided to join. I live in a yurt in Appalachian country with my partner, 4 dogs, 2 house cats, 3 barn cats, a horse, and 12 chickens. We grow organic vegetables, cultivated mushrooms, and have 42 beehives. I'm actually a city girl being from St. Louis, but have found my home here and couldn't be happier. I adore my chickens to a fault and am glad to be part of this community!
