In today’s podcast episode, we’re talking about growing your own food with Lacey from The Rab Farm.
Lacey grows and raises a large majority of her own food in her backyard known as The Rab Farm. Personally, I’ve been interested in growing just a small portion of my own food, but I’ve definitely faced challenges in this area. Talking to Lacey was just the encouragement I needed to try growing something again this year. Lacey is honest about what it takes to grow your own food, the challenges she has faced along the way, the benefits she has experienced, and ideas for getting your family involved in the process.
