We are a large family, with five adults and two (4 yr old) children at home. Love is the center of what we do, and it permeates every action throughout our day. Whether we are working in the garden, teaching the children, or cooking for the hoard, we try to center our activities around our love for one another and for our land. Farm life, especially the type of subsistence farming we are attempting, is a difficult life. There's plenty of work to be done, and rest days are numbered. Chores are divided up amongst us, and whatever you can do, you do. It can be painful, weeding for hours and then getting up the next day to do it all over again, but if that's what needs doing, then we do it. Without that hard work, there will be very little to eat next winter. We are not so strict that we refuse to buy things at the store. We live in a consumer society, and we are very much a part of our world. However, what we are trying to do is provide enough of our day-to-day food that we can afford to purchase treats now and again. If we don't have to buy peas, corn, squash, or beans this winter, then we can afford to buy steak instead of hamburger, or salmon instead of halibut. We like the "nice things" in life!
