Why "Steampunk Farms"?
One of the first questions out of every visitor's mouth is "why did you decide to call it 'Steampunk Farms'?".
Well, the sanctuary essentially named itself. And here is how...
We purchased this land in 2014 with the intention of turning it into a homesteader self-sustaining property. When we arrived from our quint beach lifestyle, we discovered that the 10-year abandoned land had been utilized as the community dumping ground; it was a mess.
We began cleanup by walking the property, each with a 5 gallon bucket, filling them with trash. We were picking up nuts, bolts, and chains, and one of us commented, "it's like a steampunk farm" and we knew then that the property chose its own name.
We didn't know at that time that our new home would become a sanctuary to hundreds of rescued animals, but our home seemed to know.... it seemed to know that it would become a sanctuary to the fringed animals who were going to be there...the misfits.
