November 2010: Owl Tree Farm

The owl for whom we named our farm.


We bought this house and land, 11.5 acres in November of 2010 and immediately started talking, dreaming, and planning. At the time we knew we wanted gardens and chickens, but we didn't know what else would come to live at our farm.

In the summer of 2011 we built a fairytale barn, red with white exes on the doors.


Later that summer, after pulling fence and finishing out one stall in the barn, we bought four goats and Owl Tree Farm officially came into being.

I'm Jen and my husband's name is JC and we have come a long way from that barn raising in 2011. My intention for this blog is to first write about our beginnings, but also to share what we are learning in our homesteading journey. 

Check back soon.
