Hello and welcome to our blog! My name is Marie Taylor and my husband and partner is Mark Taylor and together we own 51 acres of land in Alabama that we lovingly call Taylor Acres. If you are interested in starting a farm, a backyard garden or homestead, or building a house, you have come to the right place! We bought our land at the end of 2016 and even though it’s a bit of a scary leap to go from a house in the suburbs to building a home in the middle of the woods, I think it is the best decision we ever made. I want to share our journey as we turn our raw acreage into a dream home and farm and I hope to share some tips and tricks along the way. So pour yourself a glass of sweet tea, let the stress of work slide away, and join us as we turn our dream into a reality.
