Encouraging sustainable living

Welcome To Our Website

We live on a small homestead and raise Chickens, free range Eggs, Cattle, Turkeys and pigs for our own use. A large garden is planted and preserved for winter months. We believe in old family values, Home schooled our children and encourage others in this lifestyle.

We feel very strongly that raising your own or buying from a local producer is the safest way to a sustainable and safe food supply. 

 With food prices on the rise and almost daily call backs of meats and vegetables, that go hand in hand with current unsafe farming practices both in this and  other countries these past years, it only makes sense to look for safe and cost effective  ways to feed ones family. Growing your own is not only cost effective, but gives your family the highest quality and safest food they can eat. Right in your own yard. 


 If you have thought about raising some of or most of your own food and would like some help or ideas about getting started browse the pages of this site and stop by the garden and livestock pages as well. Those pages are the place we are putting what we have learned in our years on the homestead. Also consider joining our mailing list so you can stay informed when we post or make changes to this site. Our goal now is to teach those who are genuinely interested in living life on their own homestead.

You will notice we have nothing to sell here like many others do, we have a donate button on a couple of our pages asking for help to keep this site running so we may continue for those that wish to come and learn or just stop by to see what we are up to. We most certainly appreciate any help you give.


This site is a work in progress

This page will continue to grow as time allows. We honestly enjoy your company, please stop in often and visit our pages to see what we are up to. We plan to post new photos as often as we can and our news page is to let you know what we are up to. Please go to our guest page and let us know if you enjoyed our site.
