Oxen

We don’t currently have any Oxen, but the dream of using a well trained oxen team to farm and selectively log is well imprinted on our hearts.

We prayed to Saint Isidore to “send us some oxen” and immediately we found a team from Gaston, Oregon on Craig’s List. We drove down and test drove them, but they cost $4000 for the team, and we have no barn or stall to house them and the immense amount of hay they consume. We have no pastures, no fences built that can hold cattle, and so on…

So, if the Good Lord wills it, perhaps one day we can over come these obstacles and live the dream of farming with oxen.
