Welcome to Little Red Farmstead, our blog about our 3.5 acre farm in northwestern Pennsylvania. We moved here in 2015 to begin our homesteading dreams. We raise dairy goats, chickens, ducks, and rabbits–and dream of more someday.
Amanda is the author of this blog. By day she’s a web developer (*cough* professional nerd) but has dreamed of having a farm since she as a little girl. When she isn’t working on the computer, milking a goat or canning goodies in the kitchen, Amanda loves knitting, crocheting, and spinning wool into yarn with her spinning wheel.
Mike never dreamed he’d end up homesteading. A true jack-of-all-trades, he can do everything from building a buck barn to cutting hair (and has the cosmetology license to prove it!). He’s also a talented musician and plays the guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, and drums.
Ben is the oldest and is in his second year showing goats with 4-H. He also loves video games and playing football. Myles is the youngest but enjoys tagging along to 4-H as well. He’ll be showing a goat in the PeeWee class at the fair this fall. Like his older brother, he enjoys video games and is the world’s biggest Transformers fan.
