My name is Donna. I'm a cook, writer, dog mom, and, goatherd who lives in the forest.
I love goats. I love food. I blog about both, and lots of other things too, like dogs, Alaska, deer, three toed cows....
Thanks for stopping by, and taking time to visit. If I could, I'd bring you in by the fire, sit you down, feed you coffee and pie and bore you to death with as many stories as you'd let me share about animals. I'm kind of doing that now, except without the coffee and pie, and for that I'm sorry. Sorry about not being able to feed you pie that is, not for boring you.
Here I share pictures and stories about daily life on the farm, travels, the animals I share my life with, the things I cook, the things I want to cook, the things I want you to cook. You'll find lots of pictures of animals, goats, Pugs, dogs, and the odd turkey snood photo. It's a bit of an obsession.
The animals run my life, and if they could, they'd be the ones writing the blog. Sometimes I think they do write this blog... Keep that in mind if you ever notice weird posts. You should also know that, I love my turkeys way more than is considered normal.
I'm a country girl...I've been involved with animals for as long as I can remember. I met my husband Kevin when his dog, Buddy, ran away from home and came to my house, a farm 5 miles away from his.... I was there as caretaker for a Sanctuary for special needs dogs and farm animals. Isolated... just me and 35 dogs, a few cows, and a 500 pound pig named Piggy Sue. But that's another story.
I raise goats on our 700 acre bush farm, they are all spoiled pets. I milk them and make cheese and soap. Most of them are bottle raised goats who had hard kid-hoods and came to our farm at a few days old. I enjoy living off the land, away from the rest of the world, and in this crazy life I'm lucky enough to have. Sometimes I wish I had been born in an earlier time, but I remind myself that everything that happens in life happens exactly how and when it is supposed to.
I hope you enjoy visiting the blog, I'm sure glad to have you.
You can find some of my recipes and other articles in Backwoods Home magazine too... It's a great read, and I'm not just saying that because sometimes I'm in it either!
