  • Greg and his family started out backyard farming, but outgrew it moving to a homestead
  • Having the image of what you want is great, and it can do a great job getting you started, but the image can’t sustain
  • The Burn’s family why started with a desire for self-sufficiency
  • Having a good wife or partner in your homesteading or farming venture can make a world of difference in keeping you grounded and sensible
  • It’s easy to get off-track by trying too many things at once
  • Being united in “Why” is what allows a couple to weather the difficult times together
  • We need to resist the urge for instant gratification and invest the time into the actual work
  • Flesh out your idea, if you can do it three times, you know that you’ve learned it
  • Be humble enough to admit when you need to change course or do something different
  • Hogtoberfest is a time when family and friends get together to not just butcher a hog, but learn together as a community
  • Mead is a fermented honey wine with ties back to ancient times
  • Greg and his buddies started the Contrary Beekeeper’s Podcast to share their knowledge of beekeeping with others who may have an interest in it
  • The peace and tranquility of the bee yard provides an opportunity of mental openness
