Welcome to our blog. We are a non-commercial farm that is moving toward being sustainable and off the grid on a limited income. Our goal is to live well not to live wealthy because they are not the same thing. Our home is over 100 years old and the farm has been in use for most of those years and likely years before that. We grow all of our crops without pesticides on land that needs healing from the years of abuse at the hands of “progress” that swept Appalachia decades ago. Our animals are humanely treated and have plenty of room to roam. Our children work along side of us and learn with us. What we lack in leisure we have gained in health and satisfaction. We hope to contribute to the vast amount of knowledge out there about living independently while knowing we are just scraping the surface.
