Melanie Gaston, Writer

Since the age of six, I have been involved with homesteading. About 3 years ago, I jumped at the opportunity to quit my Chicago job and begin a new life on a small farm in Michigan. My experiences with horses, chickens, goats, and other farm animals allow me to share my knowledge and help others to have a happy and healthy herd.
