About Us



  1. I've enjoyed watching some of your videos on You Tube! On one of the videos, you mentioned a mixture that you use to prevent blight. Could you please share the recipe you use? Thank you!

  2. I was watching a blog and wanted to share the name of the rooster with you. This rooster has 5 toes and it keeps him from hurting the ladies because he is gentle and gets a better hold. He is called a Salmon Faberol. I have no idea if the spelling is correct but I think you will be able to tell what I mean. He is a French rooster. Hope this helps.

  5. Love your program and just finished watching the one about your septic tank and it brought to mind something I've been doing for l5 years since I first bought my house and had the septic pumped...A good ole local guy who did the pumping told me that if I put a couple packages of fleischman's yeast down my toilet once a month that I would never have to pump again. l5 years later...no pumping :) Just thought I would pass along the tip. God bless...you remind me of me 50 years ago :)

  9. Hi Patara,
    I just watnted to say I love your youtube channel and everything you do. I am new to homesteading and have 4 hens I live in Idaho and this is the hens first winter and what a cold one. They are in a small coop with expansion pen and seem ok they are not laying much anymore.I did notice they have some frostebite on there combs some of them are white. What should I do?I have researched and hear so many different opinions.So I thought I'd ask you? Thanks do much and blessings to you and your family!
