Hi! Welcome to my page. I am Mouse, a female in her 20’s living in the Greater Cleveland Area in Ohio. I am pursuing a career in market and local agriculture and love animals with every fiber of my being. Despite (or perhaps because of) this I find myself very dedicated to the idea of farming, including raising animals for dairy, eggs and meat in sustainable and humane ways. I work very hard to see the world from different viewpoints, even ones I don’t agree with. I ascribe to an earth-based-faith and am polyamorous and impassioned about science, gaming and other nerdy subjects.
I currently live with my partner of many years, Greg, two dogs, a dozen hens, a rooster, and more rabbits than you can shake a stick at! Near-by lives my second partner Dan, two sets of my older sisters, their own partners, one nephew, three nieces, countless friends and my father. Many of these people help me to make this passion and dream come true in my life.
Quarter Acre Home is a blog detailing and recording the journey of myself as I pursue a small, sustainable and self-sufficient lifestyle for myself, my partners and my pets. While this is primarily a blog about homesteading in an urban setting, other issues such as environmental, political and ethical concerns that may impact a homesteading lifestyle will likely be brought up as well. Some things may be discussed in epic detail while other posts may just consist of cute pictures of animals depending on the day… It is, after all, my blog that I write for fun and reflection so topics may vary. I hope you choose to read my blog and I hope to both educate and amuse you with my rapier wit and journey towards sustainability!
Now lets all go grow something!
