My husband and I are an empty nest couple who homestead five acres in the foothills of the Southern Appalachians. Living on the outskirts of a small town, I'd have to say that even with five acres, we it almost seems we are more of an urban homestead than a rural one. From our front porch we can see neighbor's homes and local traffic. From our back porch we view fields and woods.
Our vision is to be as self-sustaining as we are able, by stewarding our land, our animals, and our resources. Between that, and renovating our old 1920s farmhouse, our life is busy but fulfilling. This blog journals our daily workings toward our dream.
