Their Chanceford Township farm is just over 8 acres. Most of it is pasture, perfect for their grazing animals.
Sheep, chickens, and hogs were the first animals to arrive. A dairy cow is on the way.
Bringing the abandoned property back to life hasn’t been easy.
“It’s taught us exactly how much you can get done in a 24-hour time period,” Tabitha says. “We sleep really well.”
But she wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.
She and her husband are living out their dream of honoring the animals they butcher, honoring the land they farm, and honoring their bodies. And they’re passing that down to their four children.
Sunsets at the farm are beautiful. Tabitha will watch them as her kids run around her and the animals graze, the sun glowing across their backs.
“I get this picture and I think this is it,” she says. “This is why we do it.”
