This week I have been preparing for our upcoming school year. We have been homeschooling for 14 years now, but many people across the nation are finding themselves homeschooling for the first time due to COVID.
Read my latest article over at Mother Earth News, “Learning to Homeschool on the Homestead,” where I share tips and tricks for using the homestead alongside kids’ more formal schooling.
I have another post up at Mother Earth News Blog. This one is about how to train a milk sheep or dairy goat to stand in the stanchion for milking.
Head over and check it out by clicking here.
I am excited to announce that I am now blogging for Mother Earth News.
I am looking forward to this opportunity to share some of what we learn here at Willow Creek Farm through a new platform. I will also, of course, continue blogging here as usual.
Head on over to Mother Earth News to check out my latest post, Milk-Sharing: Milk a Dairy Animal Without Removing the Baby, where I share how we manage our dairy animals more naturally by leaving the baby with the mother, and still get milk for our own use.
