We are a retired couple living in Cooksville, Wisconsin on 10 acres. We have a large garden every summer, 2 mules and about 25 chickens. We enjoy visits from our children (4) and grandchildren (6+) and keep busy with church and community activities.
We make it a point to meet our guests on arrival, but intentionally stay out of their way unless they want to interact with us. Our goal is to be accessible but non-intrusive.
