Welcome to Arrow Hill Homestead. As I write these words, I can’t help but smile. We’re finally living our dream.
Owning a small farm has been a dream of ours since we were married in May of 2006. We were both in college studying agriculture and had a shared dream to one day own a little piece of land where we could raise our children, raise livestock and have large gardens.
Over the next decade, we moved several times, changed jobs and had 3 children but never gave up on our little homestead dream.
In March of 2017, after a few years of looking at multiple properties, we found 5 acres. It wasn’t perfect – no white farm house, beautiful barn and fenced in property ready for livestock – but it was less than 20 minutes from my husband’s job, was in our price range and had wonderful potential.
We closed on the property May 2, 2017 and welcomed our 4th child into our family just 10 days later.
We’ve added several hens, pigs and two sheep to the homestead.
2017 was an absolute whirlwind of a year, full of many changes but we’re excited about what 2018 holds both for our family and for Arrow Hill Homestead.
This blog is intended to be a record of our homestead happenings for us to look back on and remember and to share with family and friends and any new friends we may meet via this blog, our Instagram feed or Facebook page!
