It’s a pleasantly strange feeling to actively live out, what you had only dreamed of for so long. If there is an opposite feeling of déjà vu, perhaps it is akin to what comes over me as I am milking my goats early in the morning or walking our property at the end of the day with Farmdog. The overwhelming knowledge that this is what I was made to do fills me with an urgency to actively absorb every moment. Once, I might have questioned why it didn’t it happen for us sooner but, I know now, it manifested at exactly the right time. We treasure most, the accomplishments which come at great cost, hard work and perseverance.
In July 2016, after 30 years of marriage and raising three wonderful children, Brandon (the Chef) and I (the author/artist) were handed the keys to our little farmhouse with five acres . We thus opened a new chapter of our lives and started on this farm adventure. The first year was a whirlwind, filled with a multitude of daily surprises that inspired me to record our experience. Now, we want to invite you to join along with us as we continue to build the “Farm to Table” lifestyle we have dreamed of for so long. If there is one thing I have learned in my life it’s this: You must be able to share with others: what you value greatly, to truly enjoy it. I am excited to reveal the discoveries we make each day and relate the stories that unfold through the process.
To meet all the feathered and furry inhabitants that live here with the Chef and I please visit “The SmithFarmhouse Characters” page. We also invite you to “follow Us” to receive our latest blog posts as we share the discoveries we make as well as the lessons we learn along the way. We hope you enjoy our farm!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
