I’m Amanda

A few years, a couple pigs, and a new appreciation for life. Thats what owning this homestead has done for us. I have always loved animals and knew I wanted to own property big enough to have my dream one day.

On our five acres we now have a thriving Kunekune farm that began with just two pigs. It did not take us long to fall in love and realize that this is what we wanted.

Some days are hard, some days are joyful, every day teaches us something new.

I love sitting with the pigs and talking to them, coffee, gardening, cooking/baking, hanging out with my kids, and taking the time to learn something new everyday.

My day job is the farm, my night job is owning AFewShortcuts.com & MomsWithCrockpots.com. Both are super rewarding.

We have 3 dogs, 4 cats, bunnies, too many chickens, 2 crazy turkeys (Snoop & Martha), a couple ducks, and a ton of Kunekune babies.
