Our Plain and Simple Life: Just the day to day pathway of our plain and simple family, living a plain and simple rural life.

Our Plain and Simple Life was recommended to me by Back to Basic Living.

As always I wrote to the recommended blogger and was pleased to here from Deanna.

We are a simple living, homeschooling and life-skilling family of 11 in north Mississippi, living on 19.7 acres. We are slowly clearing and working to build our land to more usable status, adding animals and other items as we go.

Currently, we have goats and chickens (and a lot of dogs and cats!)

We plan to start building the fruit orchard on a small scale, our garden areas, and meat rabbits this year.

We are working toward being self-sustaining and self-sufficient here on our homestead.

Small steps every day, leaps and bounds in our dream vision. The way the world is moving, it only makes sense to get prepared to do things differently than we were raised.

Thanks Deanna. I'll be posting on your own recommendations shortly.

A big ask I know, but if you can, please help me support my time on 'Farm Blogs from Around the World' by buying, reading and blogging/reviewing my book:

A Place in My Country: In Search of a Rural Dream

It's about urban downshifting to rural England (and a bit more).

I don't take any advertising on this site but your support would help me show my wife that this blog project is more than me just pursuing my obsessive interest in all things farming/gardening/smallholding!

Please support your local independent bookshop, but (yikes!) dare I say it...
