My sister is currently living and working at Shagbark Farm in Missouri (link goes to Shagbark's blog, where there are lots of cute animal pictures and more informative ramblings). Shagbark's mission is to "establish a sustainable, sacred, primitive homestead in northeast Missouri."
To learn more and/or donate, simply go to http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-a-homestead-thrive They have quite a few unique, handmade "prizes" depending on how much you are able to contribute. This is a worthy cause, and all donations will go a long way to helping this small farm be totally self-sustaining and "off-the-grid." Any amount is accepted :) Thanks for considering.
