Have you heard? There’s a Rustic Revival™ a foot! 5 Dog Farm wants to show you the way to achieve your very own Rustic Revival™
What IS a Rustic Revival™? Here’s our definition…since we made up the saying anyway…guess we can define it too!
Rustic Revival™: An uprising. It’s a nod to the past and a handshake with the future. The thought that a simpler life is a better life. Simple doesn’t necessarily mean laid back. It means living a more authentic lifestyle as our grandparents and great grandparents did.
It’s bringing back the art of building things with your own two hands, like you see me here, creating some of our raised beds. It’s learning a new skill or bettering a skill you have. It’s a step away from the plastic world, be it credit cards or stuff for your home or life. Live sustainably and intentionally!
A Rustic Revival™ is knowing what you are eating whether you plant it yourself or you shop for your food in a wiser way. It’s a connection with the land. Being a good steward with what you have. You don’t need acres and acres to be part of the Rustic Revival™. Nope. Just treat where you live well and it will serve you well. Think about the products you buy. How safe are they? What am I putting back into the land? What is this stuff made of? Can I even pronounce the ingredients?
IF you’ve read this far then you are well on your way to finding your place. There’s no set of rules here. Just good, old fashioned commonsense. I know you can do this. Not sure how to start? Follow along on our adventure as we try to be good land stewards, learn to raise livestock, figure out how to garden, cook using old methods and find out all the things that we didn’t even know we could learn from living our own Rustic Revival™
