Welcome to the future site (let the puns begin!) of The Farm at Homestead Cove. My name is Maggie, it’s nice to meet you! Since this is a new site, I’m excited to dive in and share with anyone interested in our journey as first time homesteaders. My husband Mike and I plan to document our successes, failures, learn from others, and hopefully share some lessons learned along the way.
First of all, I would like to share that when I say we are first time homesteaders, we are truly BRAND NEW. If you are experienced with all of this, I’m confident you will be laughing at us and with us as we take on this major new adventure.
We’ve read books, attended classes, consulted experts, and watched about 84 million YouTube videos. We’ve been drinking from the proverbial fire hydrant for several years now, planning and dreaming about the farming homestead we want to create as our forever home. Finally, this spring, we closed on our 20+ acres in Upstate South Carolina. We spent years looking for the perfect property and saving money for this piece of paradise. We prayed and hoped and held our breath and now it is officially ours!
Now, of course, the real work has begun!
Thanks for your interest as we share our story along the way. Welcome to the Farm!
