Welcome to our blog! Several months ago we left our jobs and friends in Salt Lake City to move to a small (about eight acres) farmstead on the outskirts of a small (population: 285), rural Iowa town. We have a 1916 farmhouse in desperate need of a paint job and a new bathroom, a barn calling for a new roof, and a field we’re slowly transitioning from cropland to pasture.
We’re planning on using this blog to share our experiences with family, friends, and anyone else who wants to laugh at our overambition and naiveté. We appreciate your interest, support, and advice!
