On small family farms and homesteads all across America, raising their own flock of chickens and having a backyard vegetable garden was a way of life for our grandparents and great grandparents who had to be much more self-sufficient (a good idea for all of us) to survive and thrive.
Their flocks provided nutrition in the form of fresh eggs and meat for the family in earlier years as well as pest extermination to protect their gardens and manure that was composted to help fertilize those gardens for big, fresh, and healthy vegetables.
Learning how to raise and care for a backyard flock along with growing vegetables was a way of life that kept the family closer together and made them much more self-sufficient.
Looking to the ways that our families did things in the past in combination with the technology and knowledge we have available today is a smart way to ensure renewable, high quality, and healthy food sources for the future as well as increasing the self-sufficiency of your family.
We think these are worthy goals for every family.
Learning how to raise your own flock of backyard chickens along with having a backyard garden are great first steps in accomplishing these goals and you can even use the chicken manure to make a great fertilizer for your garden!
We hope that you'll have some fun while you're here, learn a bunch about raising backyard chickens, increase your self-sufficiency, grow closer as a family, and maybe even save some money!
So if you and your family are ready to get involved in the enjoyable and exciting world of raising chickens, come on in, look around, stay a while, and have some fun!
