Our channel follows the day to day activities happening around LaLa Farm. LaLa Farm is a small, family owned farm located just south of the Florida – Georgia line in Glen Saint Mary, FL (Northeast Florida). We focus on producing small scale marketable farm products, while moving toward food self-sufficiency for our own family. We breed Registered Kiko, Boer, and Nubian goats for market and meat. We raise our own poultry for meat and eggs. We grow seasonal fruits and vegetables and maintain a colony of bees for honey and pollination of our plants. The goal of our YouTube channel is to educate and share with our customers, followers, and anyone else interested in the homesteading or small farm lifestyle – our approach to managing the little slice of paradise we call LaLa Farm. Our channel, just like the farm, is truly a family endeavor. On any given week, you may see videos from a number of family members depending on the video topic. Each of our family members has unique interests and skills that they bring to our farm. We would love to have you join us – the Robinson family – on our self-sufficiency and homesteading journey by subscribing to our channel.

  5. benjamin sanchez on May 2, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    So i had planned
    to do a planter box garden this year when i saw the prices of them got discouraged. I saw your video got a hold of some metal barrels used your measurements and now i have six planter boxes. Thank you so much for the video it was really easy to do and lots of fun. Great video

    I hope you don’t mind me taking your idea and telling my wife I thought of this…after I make her a couple…lol….only thing I’m going to add is drain holes in the bottom and get a piece of eaves trough that should fit underneath the barrel strapped with unistrap at one end to flow any run off water into a five gallon bucket… That way I can use horse manure on the bottom three inches and good soil on the top seven inches..
    Thank you young man for keeping this a play by play video , simple and effective , I wish my shop teacher in high school was more informative like you, 👍 👍 🇨🇦

  8. Krazykitty57 on May 2, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    I bought 11 barrels last year 5.00 each off Craigslist and have tried hiring someone to make frames 2ft tall.. I have a sitting bench I will use to weed and garden with. Mine contained syrup for soda, food grade. Noone available so i do have a sawsaw. Will do these myself. Thanks so much.

    This is an awesome video. I’ve been looking for a way to make inexpensive raised beds. Thank you.

  10. Stephen T Shipley on May 2, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Awesome! Remember bleach is one of those miracle chemicals. Inert after 3 days, if I’m not mistaken. But always a good idea to rinse and let the sun take care of them.

  11. Trish Lee on May 2, 2022 at 7:24 pm
