I too grew up in the country as so many of your readers. I am currently looking to purchase some land so that my children can experience all the rewarding hardwork that owning a farm can bring. There's nothing like living on a farm. You seem to be a very kind and caring man. Your children are very lucky to have such a devoted father. Your blog is really refreshing.

They should be old enough now to have more bunnies. I haven't gotten cages built for them yet. Too many people out there criticize farm folks for killing their animals and then run to McDonalds for a hamburger. Go figure. Several years ago Bj and I raised our first beef. After it was processed and grilled she pushed it away from the table and said I just can't do it. She said I fed that baby with a bottle as she cried and I hate that he had to go. Caroline, Thanks for reading, I'm glad you enjoy it! Hopefully someday you'll get out of the rat race and find you a nice quiet place in the country. Until then I hope this keeps you going. If you've ever got any questions, I'm just a click away! Kevin,
Garett’s rabbits are fine. They should be old enough now to have more bunnies. I haven’t gotten cages built for them yet.

Caroline,

I can\'t tell you what a great escape your blog is. You\'re enthusiasm for the life of a farmer and descriptions make for wonderful reading and I feel like I really get a taste of \"life on the other side\". Thanks for blogging and I look forward to hearing how the chicken business goes (I\'ll be crossing my fingers for you)! Hi Joel,

I'm thinking about ordering some chicks for eggs and meat. I was also thinking about getting some rabbits (a couple of does and a buck). How are Garrett's bunnies doing? I remember you saying you were thinking about getting some a few months back, but haven't seen anything on them. You are right about getting over populated with rabbits quickly, but with restricted breeding and butchering and selling young rabbits for pets you can keep ahead of them. A lot of folks from the city don't understand that animals have a purpose on this planet. Whether it be as pets, or meat, milk or egg producers we have a duty to provide them with kind, safe and healthy care while they are with us. Most small farmers are kinder hearter than what many city dwellers would think. I have seen them cry when they have to send on old cow or sow to slaughter, especially ones they raised and had around for several years. Well, take care and keep at it! Joel, Family & Friends

It is for sale by the family, not listed with a realtor. Last I heard they were asking $200,000.00. That's ridiculously high for this area. Sure would love to have it though!
