Fall Harvest Time

Barefoot Savages

It’s fall and time to harvest the roosters that we’ve been caring for. We hatched them, raised them and cared for them as a family. Now we will harvest, process and eat them as a family. This was Caitlyn’s first harvest! She did a great job and was able to do most of this bird herself.

Our Home was Destroyed by a Tornado


On April 5th, 2017 a tornado destroyed our home. We were inside the home when this happened. We did not hear the tornado coming and we did not see it. My daughter suffered a lacerated spleen which resulted in an emergency operation to remove her spleen, as well as three broken ribs. Our son suffered a fractured elbow. We lost one of our dogs, and every single thing we own. We are so grateful that everyone is alive. If anyone is able to donate, even $1 helps. Please donate through Pay Pal to the email address cosmomorte@gmail.com or here: https://www.gofundme.com/daughters-home-destroyed-tornado

Thank you everybody and please be grateful every second of every day. It can be taken away from you in an instant.
