Our Son, Ivan, has been the most enthusiastic homesteader kid you could have. (Beware: this post is about my son, I’m going to brag a little) When we brought goats on to the homestead, he was the first to want to know how to milk and take care of them. The first time our goat Clara had kids, he was checking on them constantly. It comes as no surprise to me that his goal is to be an organic farmer. He wants to raise grass fed animals and learn more about permaculture. It definitely makes this mama proud.
Ivan likes to learn new things. If we are butchering chickens, he wants to know how to use the knife and learn the whole butchering process. He loves to learn life skills, like cooking and thinks being a chef would be cool too.
