Paola and her family live on a small homestead named “Milk and Honeybee Homestead,” where they work about 3 acres of land in Texas. At peak production, they yield about 80-85% of what they eat right from their farm.
What is their greatest farm asset? The kids all say, “Bella the cow!” because she offers a generous cream line, but Paola says, "Of course, it’s all my trusty homeopathy kits." In addition to their milk cow, their farm has chickens, a large garden, and 2 bee hives, with hopes to add another each year for a few years. Their summer farm brings 5 gallons of honey, baskets of veggies, piles of eggs, and hundreds of gallons of milk. Paola and her family are committed to growing their food with organic and toxic-free principles.
They focus on using homeopathics everywhere on the farm--from their garden and animals to the farmers and the kids! Integrating homeopathy with other natural management efforts has allowed them to thus far avoid any and all conventional medications on all their creatures—great and small. To Paola, homeopathy without a solid real-foods diet, is like trying to build a house of straw.
Where does their farm name 'Milk and Honeybee Homestead' come from? After suffering from debilitating auto immune issues for years, Paola was finally introduced to the wonderful world of Homeopathy through one of her favorite homeopaths, Joette Calabrese. Since then, Paola has met many other wonderful homeopaths around the world. After a lot of learning and several different homeopathic remedies, Paola is free from most of those illnesses which burdened her for so long.
When it came time to name their farm, she read the passage in the Bible in Exodus 3:17, "There, the children of Israel—who also suffered great trials—were promised a land flowing with milk and honey," and she felt a deep connection to this scripture. Where she couldn’t drink milk before, she can now digest it. Where there was pain and suffering, she has been blessed with peace and healing. And now, their own piece of land flows with milk and honey. After great personal trials, they are blessed to further know and commune with God and allow Him to become known to them on their little homestead.
