Hi! I’m Lindsey. Thank you so much for stopping by!
I’m a new homesteader living in North Florida with my amazing husband and our two fiery little girls (5 and 3 1/2) and one happy baby boy. I have a passion for simple living, animals, gardening, natural living, and striving for more self-reliance. I’m always reading about gardening, livestock of every kind, about gmo’s and modern agriculture, and ways to live a more natural life. I love putting what I learn into practice on our homestead. And I love sharing our journey with my readers. It’s my sincere hope that when you’re here you’ll learn something valuable and be inspired to go after your homesteading dreams.
We started on this journey about 6 years ago when I was pregnant with our first child. I started becoming more concerned about the safety of the household cleaning products I was using and discovered that I could make my own safe alternatives for pennies (score!). Around that same time the local grocery store started carrying organic beef and chicken. I was totally convinced it was just marketing hype (ha!). But still, I was curious. Could it really even taste better? So one day we decided to try a pound of organic ground beef, just to see. It was amazing. And I even disgraced it by making it in spaghetti, as if that was a fair taste test! But even in spaghetti it was markedly better. And so the journey began. Six years, three kids, and one house later, we’re here on a 1/3 of an acre with big dreams of producing 80% of our own food. I can’t wait to see where else this journey takes us!
And I am so excited to have you follow along!
