(San Diego, CA)
Let me begin by saying how inspirational and insightful your website is to me! I found it by chance and have been reading it fervently ever since (yesterday!).
I currently live in the San Diego metropolis, but have adopted the frugal mentality over the past year. I look forward to owning an acreage one day and am learning as much as I can about self sufficiency in the interim.
My question is in regards to butchering. I know it's not light subject matter, but a necessary part of homesteading. When the time comes, do you butcher your animals, or hire someone else?
Thank you for providing this incredible site!
