Over our six years as an actual farm entity, we have really taken to the term Farmsteading.
Farmsteading is not really a word (my spellcheck abhors it), but it’s has become very real to us.
Farmsteading is an obvious portmanteau of homesteading and farming yet it’s also more than that. For us, farmsteading is about making a good simple living off good simple living, where our business life and personal life are not actively separated but intentionally made to be symbiotic. We grow food for our family, and more so we can feed others. And it is no accident that we are not Rough Draft Farms, or Rough Draft Gardens. We are, wholeheartedly, farmsteaders.
And in the spirit of that, a couple months ago we started putting up videos (below) about how we do things on the farmstead. The goal here is simply to show how we grow food, offer some advice, and hopefully inspire some of you to do the same. Our systems are always evolving, but we thought it would be fun to share what we have going on and how we do it. So maybe you want to farm or you’re just curious about how we do things! Check ‘em out and let us know what you think. And as always, subscribe to follow along!
