Store bought vs. CATFISH grown in our BACKYARD POND 🐟

It's time to break out the fishing poles and see if these CATFISH are as big as STORE BOUGHT FISH! 😬
Each morning on our one acre farm in the city of Phoenix, Arizona, we start the day with milking goats, feeding pigs, and gathering eggs. We have a small plot of land, but boy, do we make the most of it. Each animal on our farm is taken care of holistically & organically. We let the mama goats raise their babies until they reach 10 weeks of age and are naturally weaned from nursing. We keep a small herd of 5-7 milking goats, mainly the Nigerian Dwarf breed, although we still have the queen of the herd, Luna, our Nubian goat. We use the fresh goat's milk to make cheese, butter, cream, and we use it in all sorts of baking & cooking. We love that we can walk into our backyard and gather food. It's the best feeling ever!
After the morning chores, we usually tend to the pond -- we're always adding new pond plants and fish to maintain the delicate ecosystem of our natural swimming pool. Our backyard farm is full of adventures, and we're so happy to share our farm vlog with you. Hopefully you can feel inspired to grow something of your own, or care for an animal with kindness like we strive to do. Thanks for watching!

    I have been watching your family for more than a year and have left a comment to you. I am so happy to let you know that your family and the privilege of watching has given me such a calm feeling even with these troubled times and seemingly evil world. Watching your family brings a big smile and a warm feeling of family, a big family to include animals which have always been a big part of my heart. You have given so much to me I would like to see if there might be some way to give back to you. The biggest part of my life I have been an aesthetician, makeup artist and owner of a salon in downtown Seattle . I also have lived in Phoenix! Part of my career I traveled for a professional hair company as a technical specialist for chemical practices (perms and color) So, if you would like 👍 let me know your questions or anything that you need help or direction with regarding skin, makeup, anything in those areas I can help you with. I would really like to give back to your family. Take care everyone. Lisa Young

    Feed your catfish boiled egg yolk! This will give them the protein they need to grow and if you have healthy fish, you'll be eating healthy too!

    Lol catfish in the wild get way bigger than the catfish from the market. There are catfish caught in the mekong delta that are between 400 and 600 pounds. Even in the wild in the USA you can catch 20lb catfish. Don't know how tasty they are at that size though haha.

    Chicken livers. Leave them out to get STANKY in the sun for a few days and then the fish won't be able to resist it. I'd fish the rivers all day with a three day old 4oz carton of chicken livers and catch everything under the sun, including snapping turtles.
