Adventures in Homesteading: Blunders, Wonders, and Abundant Cucumbers
When country-raised Kentuckian Wes Berry marries animal-loving Elisa (a town-raised Floridian), the fun begins. Like when Elisa digs a bathing pool for new piglets who turn it into a toilet; or their rescue of a homeless donkey and the frustrating months following as donkey Clyde molests the sheep; or several cases of animal death that oddly occur when friends visit. Inspired by Kentucky writer Wendell Berry, these Berrys attempt to raise much of their own meat and vegetables. The learning process has brought successes and a series of humorous and unfortunate events. In this presentation, Wes and Elisa share their philosophy of eating animals raised in healthy conditions and slaughtered at home as humanely as possible, along with a slide show of their homesteading (mis)adventures.
