Start your Confusion with a group of Keets!
Guineafowl and Honeybees are the first animals I started with on the farm back in 2021. With everything on my plate, I needed low-maintenance animals to help rebuild the soil, control pests and ticks, and give me marketable products to sell.
It also seemed so perfect that a group of guineafowl is called a confusion. After all, the journey I started was entirely unfamiliar, full of things that I had never tackled before.
Flash forward to 2023, and I have learned so much. So many of the lessons have not been fun or easy to learn, but that’s all part of the journey. At this point, I am regularly hatching out guineafowl, have worked a ton this year on expanding my apiary, and have added even more animals to the farm. We are way beyond the low-maintenance days!
