About us - Who's who on The Simple Farm

I've read many blogs where the author of the blog tries to stay anonymous for various reasons. I don't really care if you know who I am. I get a kick out of my friends making comments on my posts and teasing me about my silly blog.

If you really want to know a bit about me you can find out about my story in my first blog post on The Simple Farm. We are not that weird. We don't do things because the world is coming to an end. We are somewhat educated and carry out a normal life. We do homeschool our children but like to involve them in as many social situations as possible. We don't like couponing but we'd rather make due than buy new. We love local food and support naturally grown, and untainted products. We like people and love visitors.

However, not everyone in my family is as forthcoming with their identity. My wife is adamant that she keep her identity a complete and utter secret. With that in mind you will notice a mysterious lady in photo's throughout this blog with a whited out face. Consider it a witness protection plan for "Milly" my beautiful and lovely wife of...many years. (Wouldn't want to tell you how long as that may give you a clue to who she really is. ha.)

I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable when I tell stories about them on the The Simple Farm so I have and will continue to give code names to my friends and acquaintances.

Here is a list of already mentioned comrades and colleagues. If you want to change your name or if you're not listed and want to be listed let me know.
