Homesteader Spotlight video 1

The Captain and I traveled down to West Virginia, to meet Stephanie & Tim of the blog Adventures in the 100 acre wood.
There was so much to see and not enough time to explore it all. I could have spent days exploring their land. Such beautiful rolling country side surrounds their home.
In this video, you will see the Rain water catch system which fills the livestock waterers. The rain water is directed from their roof downspouts into a pipe which directs the water to a large catch tank. It is attached to a pump & water filter system that distributes fresh water as needed. This was a favorite of The Captain.
I tried my hand at shearing sheep too. Let's just say there is no chance of going pro in my future...
They have a large variety of livestock and many inspiring self sufficient methods on their 100 acres. There will be another visit to the 100 acre woods in late Summer when Stephanie will take us on a wild edible hunt and then off to the kitchen to share a delicious dessert recipe. I can't wait! This is the Spring edition Spotlight, showing a small glimpse of their Homestead. Enjoy!
And please.... Remember to rate on youtube for future viewers to find.
