#BabyGoat #GoatBirth #RaisingMiniGoats I'll never quite understand how quickly and amazingly balance will enter into our lives. On the heels of a terrible and traumatic loss... we're blessed with this surprise birth! We knew our Mini Goat was going to have a baby soon but we weren't sure how soon! Meet the cutest and smallest baby goat you've ever see! She's the Smallest Baby Goat born on our Mini Goat Farm with the BIGGEST personality! Meet Mighty Mouse!
Our MINI Goat Had BABIES! You Push Momma and I'll Pull! Nigerian Dwarf Goat Gives Birth!
#NigerianDwarfGoats #LiveGoatBirth #RaisingMiniGoats Kidding Season has FINALLY begun! I feel like I've been waiting for forever and Willow is the first Nigerian Dwarf Goat Doe to kid this year! She's a lovely mini goat and one of my favorites! I couldn't believe it when she went into labor! We love our Nigerian Dwarf Goats! There's nothing like being there when these mini baby goats are born!
We Had To HELP Our Mini Goat Give Birth! I Was NOT Ready for This!! ❤️🐐 Nigerian Dwarf Goat Birth
#nigeriandwarfgoat #goatbirth #minidairygoats Last time you joined us for Willows Birth Story! But today is Tiana's Turn! She's one of our beautiful nigerian dwarf goats. She's got the most expressive blue eyes and she's a real sweetheart! So when I realized I was FINALLY going to be there for an entire birth of hers (Shes SUPER SNEAKY when it comes to kidding!) I was so excited! But I didn't expect to have to assister her in a tough birth with not the best outcomes!
I’m Running Out of Room! Time for these Baby Chicks to GET OUT!!! 🐤🐥
#CaringForChickens #ChickDays #ChickBrooder It's another weekend on the farm and I'm realizing with an incubator full of chicks that I am quickly running out of room! So that means that the chicks we hatched 3 weeks ago need to move to the larger brooder out in the barn. Here are some ways that we make sure we're setting our chicks up for an easy transition from indoors to outdoors. The best purchase you could make for your chicks is a heating plate! We love it! The chicks love it! AND it's SAFE!
Preparing for a BABY EXPLOSION and LOTS of GROWTH on the Farm! 🦃🐐🐰🌻🐝 Farm Vlog

Let's catch up with the Muscovy Ducks, the Bees, the Garden, The Mini Donkeys, the Goats and of course we're incubating more eggs!!! LIFE ABUNDANT here on Mulberry Branch Farm at the moment!
Opinion: Do the advantages of living off-grid outweigh the conveniences of urban living?
Many of us have a kind of longing for freedom from artificial ties. Life in the wilderness with no paid for running water or electricity. Also, no supermarkets, no drug stores, and no medical facilities. I wouldn’t survive, would you?
We Didn't Always live This Way | What Happened | Q & A
As an older, off-grid couple living out in the woods and building a homestead with a YouTube channel. We get many questions about how we got here, how we do it, whether it is easy, how we preserve our food, whether we grow our food, etc. We decided to answer 10 of your most popular questions about living off the grid.
How We Would Start a Homestead in 2022 🌻🐐🐔 Encouragement To Get Started!
Starting a homestead can be very overwhelming. We want to encourage you to take it one step at a time. Don't put your drive to being self sufficient in a box because it can't fit into just one box. It's incredibly gratifying raising your own food, connecting with the Earth, and pledging to treat it with respect. We have all had successes and failures in dreaming up and creating our homestead. Please watch and learn from us!
Mornings on the Homestead...Peaceful, Proactive, and Disappointing?
#homesteading #farmvlog #adayinthelife One day on the homestead can be an adventure. We wake up with an idea of ALL the things that we need to touch or complete. A unique to do list. Rarely does the day stick to our idea of what it should be. I'm going to bring you along on a frosty morning that turns warm. We have morning chores, proactive chores, and some chores that just give us disappointment.

Avian Influenza is HERE! Protect Your Flocks! 😷🤒🦃🐓🦆 Substituting Fodder for Free Ranging!
#avianinfluenza #chickenfodder #homesteading It’s here! Avian influenza is in Indiana! So we’re creating bio security measures for our flock to keep them safe!

Farm Forensics! | The Snow Storm Passed Us By But The PREDATOR Did Not! | 👩🏼🌾😢🦃🐺☠️ FARM VLOG
#PredatorProblems #Homesteading #NigerianDwarfGoats The winter storm is done! The whole farm got through it and we're ready to dig out and get some fresh air into the barns! Winter can be so hard. The snow adds an extra element and obstacle to everyday chores but we can get through it with a little elbow grease! But even though the snow storm passed us by, the predators did not. We have a death on the farm and now I'm REALLY WORRIED about my Nigerian Dwarf Goats! What attacked our livestock? What can we do to prevent it? Livestock results in dead stock but that can still be a hard pill to swallow even with the most seasoned steward of livestock!
My Farm Turns Into A Wildlife Show!? 🐐👩🏼🌾🐺🦨🐀🦝🦉 The Coyote Came BACK!?
#Homestead #PredatorsOnTheFarm #Wildlife With warmer weather moving into East Central Indiana it means that a lot of wildlife starts to move! Spring means mating seasons, hibernating animals wake up, and we ALL want to get outside and move after a long winter! We've seen a LOT of visitors on the farm after a long cold winter! Some of them are welcome and some of them aren't! Are we going to get an LGD to help with our critter issues?
Rosie The Mini Goat Is Finally Old Enough To Be A Momma! 🐐❤️🐐 Raising Nigerian Dwarf Goats
#breedingnigeriandwarfgoats #breedingminigoats #nigeriandwarfgoats Last year Rosie wanted to partake in breeding season. But she was too small even for a Nigerian Dwarf Goat. It was dangerous for her to carry kids to term at her size. But this year, Rosie the Nigerian Dwarf Goat, is big enough and old enough to breed! We’re hoping that her date night goes well and that she’ll be welcoming her own kids in the spring! I’m so excited for little Rosie babies! How about you?
My First Honeybee Hive Loss 🐝 | No Such Thing As A Failed Honeybee Hive 🌻🐝❤️ | A Season Of Loss
#honeybees #deadout #homesteading Beekeeping is extremely rewarding! Honeybees are so complex and interesting. We work hard to care for our bees but sometimes winters can be tough on a hive and they may not survive the harsh elements! That was the case for the Lilac Hive. Even though I’m disappointed and feel the sting of loss with this dead out we are going to learn from this experience and use it to better ourselves.
Peaceful Farm ASMR | Sights and Sounds on the Farm
#ASMR #Farmlife #homesteading Sometimes our surroundings say so much more than we ever could. They tell neverending stories and can impose changes of mood in an instant. My farm brings me so much peace and happiness... I wanted to share that through only sights and sounds filmed on our little farm. Enjoy this peaceful farm ASMR.
What No One Will Tell You About Homesteading With Livestock In The Winter 👩🏼🌾🌾❄️🐐🐴 |FARM VLOG
#WinterStorm #PreparingTheFarmForASnowStorm #Homesteading When I first started homesteading I had a certain picture in my head about what it would be like. Rarely does reality meet in the middle with the expectations… We're getting the farm ready for a Winter Snow Storm. We're getting inches of ice and then close to a foot of snow! We have to make sure our Mini Goats and Mini Donkeys are safe in this dangerous winter weather. So here's how we make sure our Nigerian Dwarf Goats and Miniature Donkeys stay safe, warm, happy and healthy during a BIG WINTER STORM! But before the storm even gets here, our ducks were attacked by a predator! When it rains it pours.
