What are your homesteading goals?

We live and work on our homestead all year. Everything here is a work in progress.

What are you currently doing to be more self sustainable?

Every day we are learning and brainstorming ways to make our part better and we are applying it more and more.

Any special hobbies like bee keeping, gardening, etc

We grow 80% of what we consume currently. We have a garden we eat out of that doubles as a teaching garden. You can learn more about us at:


Hello to those reading this. We are Deane and Pam Bowling, owners and operators of Backyard Farm. Last year, I helped teach a month-long permaculture course in Ecuador at an organic farm.

What Pam B. is saying about this Meetup Group

We would like to thank Richard for sharing his spring house with us. We enjoyed meeting some new friends. Good luck to you Richard in all your future endeavors. We would just like to give our 2 cents on the pasture, open field. Please let the "weeds" come up where you are not walking or driving so the predator bugs and the bees, especially, have food for the Winter. The water is beautiful, thanks again for sharing.
