What’s in Episode #4?

In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, I’m visiting with Nance Sparks from She recently moved her homestead from Arizona to Wisconsin. We talked about the differences between Arizona and Wisconsin for raising dairy, why she moved, how she moved her animals cross country, improving her pastures for Cookie cow and pal horse Do, and much more.

She’s got some great stories about Cookie cow and Do, and some sad stories about Sally, another milk cow. Nance is a great guest. You’ll really enjoy listening to her stories and her wisdom.

So make yourself a cup of tea and then click play. :)

In the future, be sure to follow along with the progress on Nance’s forever homestead (I love that phrase!) at her blog. Be sure to follow Homesteader Supply on Facebook, too.

What’s Coming Up…

The raw dairy series continues, and next week I’ll be talking about culturing your own dairy at home. If you’ve ever wondered how to get started with that, or you want to know more about it, be sure to come back next Friday.
