Welcome to another episode of the Little Way Farm and Homestead Podcast! Today we are honored to have a genuine conversation between close friends of ours – Mike and Frances. 

Mike and Frances are one of the first families to welcome us into the homesteading lifestyle. It was at their house that we learned how to process chickens. I still remember running around the front yard trying to catch those Cornish cross. Not only that, but Mike and Frances continue to inspire us in their commitment to live a life characterized by the Catholic Faith, even when times are challenging. 

Together they have seven children and live a homesteading lifestyle. Their home is surrounded by goats, chickens, rabbits and a garden. And it is clear that they are committed to growing in holiness and building a homestead where the Catholic Faith is evident.

This recording was conducted months prior to its release, at Little Way Farm and Homestead when both of our families spent time with one another. You will hear the sounds of children playing in the background and the general chatter of many people gathered under one roof. This is a unique insight, via the podcast, into the joy and realties of bringing together growing Catholic families. 

We hope this conversation is inspiring to you. We love our Catholic faith. Its place within our farm and homestead is foundational as we hope it is in yours. Let’s get into the episode.
