THE CHICKEN COOP and yard area are like a massive apartment complex, complete with nesting boxes. Matt grew up in a family of DIYers. As a kid, he spent a lot of time at his grandmother’s house, learning gardening from her. She also had an orchard with numerous varieties of fruits trees. He learned about chickens from friends and family. Now he teaches Audra how to raise all her animals. “It helps to have a dad who builds everything,” Audra says. (Carol Mowdy Bond)
