She Who Walks With Goats


My name is Megan. I live in Pleasanton, New Mexico.  We are not a town, think smaller like a village.  Our nearest town about a mile from our home is Glenwood which has a post office, trading post/gas station three mom and pop restaurants, a library and community center.  All the necessities to live are here and not much more but, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  On the map we are about 60 miles North of Silver City, New Mexico and 5 hours in any direction to major cities like Albuquerque, Phoenix, and El Paso. Me, and my husband and my three boys 6, 8, and 10 moved here three years ago from Southern California.  We traded a life in the suburbs for a life in the country.  I homeschool my kids and am trying to make this a self sufficient homestead.  I grew up on a family farm so I have an idea of what life is supposed to be like but, the transformation has been slower than I hoped for.  Nevertheless,  I have successfully grown vegetables, delivered baby goats and hatched chicks and benefited from the fruits of my labor.
