Moving to the Country - Big Changes Ahead for 2021

By Tampster1 @tampster1
It's time for a change and PIVOT seems to be the 2020 word of the year. I will be so happy when this year is over, as many of us will be, but we also have so much to look forward to in 2021 and beyond. 
We bought the farm??? acreage??? homestead?? we are still trying to identify the niche we fit into. We knew this day was coming for the past few years and it has taken that long to find the right property, in the right area for the right price. We are so excited to be closing on 2.667 acres in the banana belt of Canada in just over 3 weeks. It is exactly what we have been looking for. "Usable" land is hard to find when you are in the mountains as everything is either straight up, right on the highway, a gravel pit or you sit on your neighbors lap, none of the above would suffice. But we found it and it has most of the infrastructure already in place: hay barn, sheds, paddocks, corral, gazebo, private road, 1 neighbor (which we cant see) and the start of a garden area, 10 minutes to town and 10 minutes to the lake. Perfect right! 
For over a year now we have been renting a secondary residence on an acreage and on this property  there are Nigerian dwarf goats and chickens. Well what would a farm be without animals? Well the landlord gave us first pick of the Christmas babies and we are pleased to announce we have a little wether (Brad) and a doeling (Karen) coming home Mid February. Fruit and nut trees are ordered and will be ready for shipping in April and seeds will be started as soon as we move in and the day old mix of chicks/ducks  will be coming at the beginning of March. Moving to the Country - Big changes ahead for 2021
Moving to the Country - Big changes ahead for 2021We started homeschooling the kids last year and this is the perfect once in a life time opportunity to introduce them to a different way of life. It's going to be a wild and crazy year ahead. 
Happy New Year. May 2021 bring peace and prosperity to all.
