Gillis Gardens is my husband and I’s dream of a farm and goods business. We have a gaggle of laying hens, 7 alpacas, two kitties and we are renovating part of an old farm- at the same time as holding full time jobs and being first time parents.
There is a lot of work ahead of us, as the majority of the land is covered in woods, and the area cleared is super sandy, but we are so excited for the challenge!
We look forward to adding honey bees, dairy goats and much more to our family. This blog is here for me to chronicle our journey, so one week I may write about chickens, the next may be a recipe we enjoyed that past week. We’ll cover everything from preserving to composting to growing carrots to pest control that works with nature, instead of against it. Sometimes, things might get silly, or sad, or weird, but that’s life. And that’s what I know to write about.
