Hello! Welcome to Unknown Homestead! I’m Erika.
While I would love to say we have an amazing, huge homestead that is complete and bringing in the dough….it’s a work in progress on just over 2 acres.
We bought this property in 2019. I had big dreams but this fit the price range. Being built in the 1980’s it was not an old house like people buy, but it still needed some work to be done.
I handle the animals and yardwork, while Greg handles the smoking/grilling of meats and still works a fulltime job until this is complete and profitable. Having 3 stepchildren does help get some things done around here, but now there is another one on the way.
We started out as (I guess you would say) normal people. Depending on grocery stores for food and binge watching whatever TV show or movie we were into at the time. Our ways have since changed (and are continuing to change). We have added chickens, ducks, turkeys, and pigs to our Unknown Homestead (along with our dogs and cat of course).
While this property is not that old to us, I have been trying to change my ways for many years. This blog shows what we are doing and how, with the hopes it can help some of you with your hopes and dreams as well!
