Who we are
SilverlakeFarms is a part of Sablicon Media. It is a free resource for all beginning homesteaders or for people who want to start living a happy and wholesome life, grow their own food, and take care of some animals along the way. Our team consists of experienced homesteaders and farmers who know what works and what does not when it comes to raising chickens, taking care of goats or cattle, and beekeeping.
What is our goal? We aim to help people who are considering becoming homesteaders themselves to find reliable and well-researched information on anything from what’s safe to feed a farm animal to finding the right chicken coop, goat shed, cow milking machine, or bee hive kit. We publish a variety of articles that revolve around these topics and that can assist you in becoming a better homesteader.
What we do
We use the concept of Simplexity when creating all of our articles. Keeping farm animals can be a very challenging task, and getting the right products for them can be another burden. We help people save time (and a lot of headaches, along the way) when making the best purchase for their needs and budgets. One of our goals is simplifying the jargon and complexity utilized by many brands in their marketing materials.
We want to help aspiring homesteaders make the best buying decision so that they can reap the benefits of their hard work. Our mission is to provide buying advice for newbie and aspiring homesteaders, but we’ve tackled a generous variety of other topics on the site before, from feeding and watering goats to when cows can get pregnant.
We strongly believe that the best advice is free. We want to make a better world for all homesteaders and their animals, and we would like to offer you advice on how you can prevent health issues in farm animals, what you can do to get the best production, and how you can keep them safe. We exist to make your life easier.
Our research explained
Our team is composed of several experienced homesteaders, farmers, and veterinarians. They come from different backgrounds and have different experiences in an array of geographies and climates. All of our articles are created based on the recommendations of our experts. They know best from hands-on experience.
As they begin the research process, they understand the problem and track their own needs (and those of other homesteaders and prospective buyers, too) with the products that are currently available. After this process, our editors check their drafts, and this operational flow allows us to publish several pieces of content monthly.
We genuinely care about the health and safety of farm animals and we’re here to give a helping hand to homesteaders.
