Near Cadillac, MI
I'm about half an hour south of you. We live on 35 acres with horses, chickens, and one goat (we're working on more, fiber/dairy).
I have a rare disease, but am working on getting back to riding, which is my passion. :)
We homeschool, and are definitely more complimentary/alternative than western medicine.
I tried to PM, but I don't have the ability. Have you been able to meet up with folks yet? I wish there were more rural internet here, it does make it hard up here to find like-minded folks. :)
Welcome to the area (says the Michigan newbie!)
