Well hey there!

We’d love to introduce ourselves…We’re Melissa and Todd, the faces behind Blue Barn Family Farm. We’re blessed to be the parents to 4 beautiful children and 2 angel babes and we currently live in CA with our 2 cats, 11 chickens, 2 dogs, 2 lizards, 2 button quail and our canary and finch “Timmy and Tommy”

We’ve had a dream in our hearts since we were young to have our own homestead where we would grow and raise our own food and learn to live off the land. For a long time (and after many years of praying) we still find ourselves living smack dab in the middle of the city in sunny southern CA. After many discouraging days we decided, why wait any longer to make our farming dreams come true?! Our children are getting older and years are flying by! So we are going to do what we can, with what we have, where God has us right now! And that’s what this page is all about. Learning as we go, trying new things, stepping out in faith and hopefully encouraging others through our successes (and failures!) to do what they can to live out the dreams in their hearts too. We hope you’ll come along with us on this journey 

Psssssst…things have changed for our family!  Check out our blog post to see what we’ve been up to this past year
