On today’s podcast Monica and I talk about one of our main homestead goals:

By August, 2016 to provide 80% of our caloric needs from our property averaged out over any given week when we are at home.

Did we reach this goal? Short answer: no. This podcast is about what went right and what went wrong. We have hit a significant milestone in that we are providing more than 50% of our caloric needs. Why didn’t we reach this goal? Was it because we didn’t work hard enough or did we set an unrealistic goal? Find out on this episode of the podcast!
