Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

Closing The Circle

Today we did just that. We have come full circle, back to the first place I tried to get, back to a place Nik and I knew and already loved. Back to the very first place I tried to get, back to the place we already knew we loved :) :) :) :) :)

The closing is done, the papers all signed and the keys on my key chain. All thanks to the help a very dear friend who went far beyond anything I could have dreamed of :) :) :) I am so tired I can't really think, no sleep at all last night and just now back at the Burrow after 7 hours, took our first load to drop off and so much more to do. But I am happier and more at peace than I have been in over a year. My cup truly runneth over :)

So now, here is our new and true home. A magnificent 75 year old, Missouri stone cottage with ... walk-in pantry!!, 2 whole bedrooms (I haven't had a bedroom in 9 years), 3 acres!!, beautiful spring fed pond!!, workshop (we named Stone House) and a garage which will become a Barn!!!
