In 2008 my husband and I decided to try our hand at farming. We had no previous experience at what we were doing except for raising a few laying hens. After all the media hype with E-coli and other strange things in our food we just had a strong desire to know where our food was coming from. We both have full time jobs and a 14 year old son. We have jumped into this with both feet and we are learning as we go. We are interested to hear other people's comments.

All you gotta do is dream....
People go throughout life with dreams. Some are big dreams, some are small dreams. Sometimes we have dreams that come true and we didn't even know we had these dreams. Kinda like I never wanted kids. It was never a dream of mine when I was growing up. But after I got married to the man of my dreams, I realized to have a child with this guy would be a dream. Hence...J.
I'm a pessimistic kinda gal so I usually don't think my dreams will come true. But these last few years I find that many of my smaller dreams are coming true. Like the donkeys, the mini dashunds, my own little company (soap), my own farm.
Well another dream is to have a Ragdoll cat. Ever since I found out about these cats 20 years ago I wanted one soooo badly. But they are so expensive. Around here they easily go for $800! There is no way Dave would let me spend that on a cat. And honestly I can't see myself, Mrs. Miser Extraordinaire, spending that kind of money on a cat.
So anyway Dave was scouring the Kijiji (good ole Kijiji) ads. Because that's what Dave likes to do. He came upon an ad stating that a cattery was retiring a female Ragdoll cat. For the price of having her spayed we could get her.
We couldn't believe it! So we called the lady. The only problem was that we could only pick her up on Thursday when we were going to pick up Antonio. That didn't leave enough time to bring her to the vet. She agreed to let us have her anyway under the condition of having her spayed. But then...she said she wanted to retire another one. Did we know of anyone that wanted another one?!!
