Hi everyone, DH and I live in west central IL and are working toward a life of self sufficiency. Currently we have a huge garden, have started in meat rabbits, have a goat who will probably end up being a pet, several chickens, a newly aquired horse. And we can't forget our big Mastiff, Ben! We've started prepping for the future, whatever it may hold. Basically, we're working toward a better life, and have come here to learn all that we can!
