We’ve been at this “Homesteading” thing for about 5 years now. At first it was just a small garden and a few chickens, but now we have 2 rabbits, 4 ducks, 10 chickens, 2 sheep, we raise meat chickens and pigs each year. Our little hobby farm has become part of our income and so…I kinda had to start keeping track of things.
Last year was the first year I used my Homestead Binder and it proved to be very helpful to keep track of yields, health of the animals and financials. Thanks to the binder I was able to see what kind of grain worked best for our pigs based on their health and final growth (and I learned that I need to rotate the pasture more next year). I’m also able to keep track of how many eggs are being laid vs how much I spend on feed which factors into the cost of egg sale. I could go on…the point is, it’s useful.
I’ve created my own Homestead Log Forms that are now available in our Etsy shop for immediate download. You can purchase forms based on the animals that you have (although I only posted forms for the animals we have. I didn’t want to make forms without knowledge of what needs to be tracked for other animals.)
I hope you find them useful and if you have any questions, please ask!
