Do you have a piece of furniture in your home that you just can’t let go of? Perhaps it doesn’t fit, or it’s old and disgusting – but you just can’t bear to tear yourself away from it? You know, that couch from college, or the cockeyed table that came…

About Elisha Neubauer

Elisha grew up in a small fishing village in Dartmouth, England. The product of a British Mother and an American Military Father, she moved to the states in the mid-90's. She spent her childhood in horse camps and on her grandfather's 10 acre farm, where she developed a passion for farm animals and longed to have a farm of her own. After 11 years of working as a store manager in one of the busiest stores in the state of Florida, she met her now-husband - a German, who had just moved to the states a few years prior - and they purchased their dream home on 11 acres in Rural Central Florida. Elisha is a mother to three: a 9-year-old boy, a 6-year-old daughter, and a 7-month-old daughter. Elisha left the hustle and bustle of retail life and now works from home as a transcriber assigned to a Dairy Farm's audio files. Between starting up their own small family farm and transcribing for a Dairy farm - Elisha has been learning first hand the joys (and trials) of rural life. You can read about her family's adventures and mishaps on the farm in Elisha's blog: "European Geeks In Rural America."

For the Love of Animals

1415283371232

Before we moved to the Farm, we always had pets – dogs, ferrets, cats. I couldn’t stand the thought of having my children growing up without pets. Now that we’ve moved to the Farm and have all these animals, I’m amazed to see the difference it has made in my…

  Here I am, finishing up my coffee on a beautiful morning, just about to dive into my ever-growing list of chores when it occurs to me that I have established a different meaning of “clean” since moving to the farm. I am the product of a former military drill…
