Hi, I’m Kathryn.
Thanks for checking out Joel McDonald’s Farm.
Aside from the title of my blog, it’s actually where I live with my partner, Joel.
We share our 5 acre piece of heaven in Mission, British Columbia with our English Bulldog, Dolly,
Merle, the barn cat,
and at least one weasel, a racoon and maybe some moles.
So, technically it’s not a real farm since we don’t actually produce anything (yet), but we’ve got BIG plans. Like getting more animals, overhauling the garden (read: it’s massive, it’s mega overgrown and we’re
kinda seriously new to “farming”) and revamping the cottage so that someday you’ll be able to come stay with us and enjoy our kickass view of Mt. Baker.
That’s the low down on the farm; here’s a little dirt about me:
Nickname – Kat
Hometown – Hubbards, Nova Scotia (a beautiful little town on the eastern shore, known for great beaches, lobster suppers and live music every Saturday night)
Siblings – One baby brother (ok, technically he’s not a baby anymore; he’s two years younger than me and he has a wife and 2 kids)
Best memory – I have three:
- Finding out my nephew was born while sitting on a roof top patio in Cuba
- Holding my niece in my arms just minutes after she was born
Being an Auntie is super AMAZING even though I live crazy far away. FaceTime is also super AMAZING.
- First night with Joel at OUR farm
Guilty pleasures – all.of.the.sugar and lists
Craziest thing I’ve ever done (aside from buying a hobby farm) – Moved from one coast to another. Alone. (scary as hell, but by far the best thing I’ve ever done. EVER)
Favourite holiday – Christmas (despite living with Scrooge)
Favourite movie – Dirty Dancing (no explanation necessary)
