I hope you all had a great summer!
My name is Angelita and My partners name is Sean. I am 30 and Sean is 33. We have been progressively building our homesteading skills over the past decade. We have spent time working on a homestead in Montana along the Yak River. We love the fresh air and abundance of water that Montana provides and we are well aware of the difficulties the climate creates. We have also spent time working on other farms throughout the northwest including; Nelson, BC , SpringRain Farm in Washington, a nigerian dwarf goat farm in Gaston, Oregon, and a few others.
We have a strong passion for eating an ancestral diet which we believe consists of lots of fats and meats. Our lifestyle revolves around food and this is where we draw our motivation from to farm.
As a result of our past farming experiences some of the skills and expertise' we have developed are;
cooking- fermenting, canning, preserving. I have learned to deal with bulk harvests and put them to use so they can be stowed away for over a year. I also enjoy daily meal prep and cooking hearty dinners. From my experience the kitchen is the "engine" of the farm and I enjoy participating and keeping everyone healthy.
herbal knowledge- I have studied herbs for a decade. I love propagating them in my garden and using herbs for tea, tinctures, and seasoning for my food
goats - We have worked with and milked goats on a variety of farms. Currently we have 2 Nigerian dwarf goats.
Chickens- We have owned chickens for 10 years.
- Korean Natural Farming. We learned how to make our own fertilizer using fermentation techniques.
- hoop house/ greenhouse construction - we have experience constructing hoop houses and temporary greenhouses that are extremely beneficial in colder growing climates.
- Seed propagation - We have propagated several different kinds of seeds. Seed propagation is a constant during growing season and we have experience starting seeds in a variety of climates.
- health has always been one of our top priorities. We do our best to remain in great shape which allows us to work long consistent hours.
-Construction- We have some basic building experience, but it is not our strength. We are definitely eager and capable of learning.
Currently I manage a yoga studio and we have a small homestead in Claremont, California. We would love to consider joining you guys in the Spring. We can provide lots of positive energy combined with a strong desire to work together and live off the land.
