This was Tricky! Off Grid | Homesteading
Sometimes you have to move fast. With RAMBO our RAM watching my every move I needed to divide the pasture for the wood lot expansion. You can make a pen for livestock and fence line or even a garden trellis with Cattle Panels. You need some wire and t posts and you can get r done!

About OFF GRID with DOUG and Stacy
In 2010 we decided to sell everything and build a log cabin on 11 acres. We have lived in the log cabin for a decade now with no solar power or wind power plus zero public utilities. We live like the pioneers except in the 21st century. We post videos on social media to encourage people to return to the land and make a living with your family. We teach folks:
*Off grid living *Rain water catchment *Cooking with wood
*Food growing *Cooking from scratch *Raised bed gardening
*Food harvesting *fermenting the harvest *food preservation
*Holistic Remedies like Grandma made *How to make money and live this life
*storing food in a root cellar *DIY Build projects
*Animal Husbandry *Raising Chickens, Guinea, Turkeys and Ducks
All of our videos are made to empower you to break free and LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE!
Silly ducks have a whole pond and they want to play in a puddle
Curious how two waited for the one to finish frolicking in the puddle before they head out together.
Of course! Just like children ….. take the toy out of the box, and play with the box. lol!!!!
I did not know about petting the sheep on the head. Thank you for that nugget. God Bless! Carmen
So beautifully amazing how all that work you put into our homestead starts to become a beautiful tranquil place you love to be around. Been homesteading our 6 acres in Mississippi this year will be our 2nd year and all the improvements we made and are making just make it feel more like HOME!
This is a beautifully homestead 🏚
Doug about time to put a shed over the sawmill to get you out of the sun and rain
Now he must always be concerned about hitting the concrete with the saw chain.
Thanks for the panel carrying tip! I’ve been awkwardly tying them off with the trailer that’s not long enough and doesn’t work well anyway. This is going to be life changing!😄
Congratulations on building your dream homestead over these 10 years – we are finally building ours.
The Klein’s would cut the fence but you might damage the the wire cutters so bolt cutter was the right choice
Quite warm still in northern Vermont. You guys have been such an inspiration to me. We have one acre on the edge of our small town. We’ve been here almost 4 years after downsizing — we are both in our mid-60’s but going strong, eating lots of fermented foods! We planted an orchard the first year — apples, pears, sour cherries. We added currants and elderberries in our second year. I plan to take cuttings from our elderberries this fall to plant in spring. Our garden is expanding every year, chickens planned for next year. I’m setting up a gravity water system for irrigation. And we are almost completely debt-free! Thank you for being out there doing all you do! Love from Vermont <3
I love for a what you have done on the edge of a small town and the slow progression. I’m 75 so I don’t think that I can do what you did but I wish I could . I have been sick this summer and I’m weak and I broke my arm a week ago . I’m Hoping to have a ministry and have stronger people with me to do the homesteading with me
Looking really good guys!!! Those cattle panels are really overpriced here in Canada—back in spring last time I checked they were $130 (Canadian) a panel!!! we are in NE Ontario and we are almost at freezing temperatures—very chilly at night—garden is almost over 🙁 happy homesteading guys! Always enjoy your videos
Wow, I buy them for $28.99 a panel.
Wow. Maybe it would more than pay for the trip and panels if you come here into America to a country town, buy up a number of panels then head home. Who knows but you’d likely have lots of money left over from say even 10-12 panels! 🤔
Brook👩🌾🍏🍎 in northern Indiana😃
@SIMPLE TRUTH I can get cattle panels in NW Kentucky for about $20 a panel. Hog panels are a dollar or two less.
@Vytania Nice, weird that hog panels here are more expensive than cattle panels.
Lol. Rambo came around that corner.
I am an old woman, but watching the two of you makes me feel so young at heart. Keep it up Please..
I have not laughed 😆, so much in awhile. But the space between the building was funny. Thanks for the information on how to pet sheep.
I loved every minute of this video, Doug! Your videos are Calming and not rushed. Felt like I hung out at Doug and Stacys place today! Thanks for sharing it keeps my dream alive!
i felt the same way 🙂
Indeed! Great comment!!
I agree, I love all their videos
Rambo wasn’t worried about the fence…. you were cramping his style with the ladies !!!
An old timer told my folks when I was growing up on the farm, that you’ll have your hands on every piece of wood seven times before you sell it. So we did hay and straw sales instead.
Lol I’m going for th NO TOUCH firewood stay tuned 👍
Still a good way to get a work out. Some of us live (or in my case did live)in the city and still burn firewood. I got most of my exercise from mowing the lawn and managing 60 mature trees on 6 tenths of an acre and cleaning the pool. Living in the country does provide more free sources of exercise. My contention for good health more Americans need exercise and as Doug n Stacy are illustrating good food sources. I understand trying to make a living off of firewood one should be as efficient as possible in handling the product.
Have a T-post puller as well so you can readjust your fence as needed. Bailing twine in your pocket is handy to make a temporary tie so things don’t fall down. When it comes to fences goats are high jumpers and sheep are bulldozers.
Tee post puller!!!!!!!!!!!
T-post puller is on my list, keep waiting to find one at a garage sale ! Got the post ponder for $5 🙂
🤗 my late milk cow, “Laura” would not have hurt anyone. She knew she was family to us. I’d milk her where ever she was in my pasture. Never tied her, never hobbled her. If she began to lift a hind leg while I was milking, I told her to put her leg down, please, and she did. Of course I talked to her while I was milking her. When she was lying down, I’d grab a book, go out to her and use her as a back rest. Then she’d turn her head and rest it in my lap 🤣🤣😂. She got her ears rubbed while I read my book, out loud of course😄😍. She was an amazing cow🤩.
Used to put a pony saddle on one of our steers 🐄 and pile my children on him, walk down to school bus stop, yes I had lead rope in use😊, and then when the bus came they’d slide off, tell him ‘thanks for the ride Mac’ and give him a pat or hug😄. He enjoyed it too. He and I repeated it to pick them up and bring them home😄. The other children on the bus loved watching it and often called out , ‘Bye, Mac’ 😂
Shalom and Blessings
That’s so sweet!❤️🥰
Has anyone heard where Maggie the dog has been?
@serenalwoods I heard from another subscriber she died😭.
I think Laura was one of a kind what a jewel. You should write a children’s book about her. And about Mac that is too cool
Opy Brook , great stories, thanks for sharing!
Rambo and that plant needs some privacy 🤣🤣🤣
I know someone who lost their middle finger using a t-post driver.
