About Us

For almost 30 years of marriage (plus dreaming in our single days), we have dreamed of self-sufficency, alternative energy, farming, and a rural life.  As our youngest child was graduating from high school, we decided it was now or never.  We have done our best to get debt free, increase our DIY skills, and finally shopped for and found our property in March of 2011.  This site is about turning the 13 acre hay field into the small farm of our dreams and learning  all the skills necessary for having a self-sufficient life.


  1. Congratulations! We are celebrating our 30th anniversary next week and we have wanted to leave free from the corporate world and much more self sufficient for many years as well. It's a long process to try and break free from the bondage that our culture sucks us into but Lord willing we will be there fairly soon. May He bless you on your journey, it sure looks like you are doing very well!

  2. Thank you! It just goes to show, it's never too late to achieve your dreams. We are coming up on 35 years in May. At least during that time we learned lots of diy skills, learned how to live frugally, got debt free, and learned alot about facing life's realities. We are loving life now! Good luck to you!
