My bio page is now up, Tina Elliott, Billy Joe's Food Farm, and my first post can be found here, How We Transitioned From City To Country (And Why We Did So).

The Mother Earth News website is always helpful, and the print magazine is very inexpensive.  I read it cover to cover, as soon as I get it.  If you are interested in homesteading, you should think about subscribing.  You will be very pleased with it, I'm sure.

I got my subscription to Mother Earth News several years before we left the city for our farm.  Mother Earth not only taught me SO much through the years, but was truly instrumental in helping me believe that living the homesteading life was possible for my family.

The idea that I have transitioned from the city to the country, with the help of so many articles from my favorite magazine, and now my experience can be shared with the readers of that same magazine, well, it is just thrilling.  I hope that now I can be helpful to others, who want to escape the grind but don't think it is possible.  It is.  We did it, and so can you.

I look forward to sharing our story with you.  My hope is that what we have learned, and the mistakes that we have made, will help you, inspire you, and make you laugh.  Welcome to our farm!!!!

Danyelle, thank you very much. I hope that my kids benefit from growing up this way, and pass what they have learned to their own kids.

Thank you, Colleen! I hope to submit at least one a week to their website, and of course will continue posting here every day, too. And the farm's other pages on facebook, twitter, and pinterest...

Josh, thank you very much, I think I could've made this article pages and pages long, but had to stop somewhere. I'm not sure if there are more of us out there at this point, or if it is just the circles in which I am running, but either way it is encouraging.
