Let the kids do the labor!
I know you're probably thinking, "I don't have time to do chickens, pick raspberries, dry fruit, can chicken, raise rabbits, etc". That's what your kids are for! And it's great for them too! My son mows our lawn. When we can chicken he puts the meat in the jars while I put the broth & lids (we can get 18 lbs in the canner in under 20 min). He completely takes care of all our animals. They're under his stewardship & he gets their food & water every day. When we can or dry peaches he takes the peels off while I do other stuff. He goes out & picks the raspberries & strawberries. The work goes much faster than I could do by myself. And imagine if I had more than 1 child!
