We created this site to share our journey through urban farming, parenthood, adoption, marriage, and everything in between. Our homestead encompasses subsistence farming, raising chickens, and bee keeping. Thanks for stopping by!

Urban Farming

The main reason we decided to start our urban farm is because we see a huge problem with our food system. We felt that we had very little control over the way animals are raised, the distance food travels to get to our plates, the long list of unnatural ingredients and added sugars in our food . The idea of raising and growing our own food seemed like the best way to gain full control over our health, environmental impact, and the ingredients from start to finish.  

Real Food Recipes

We strive to eat local, ethically raised/grown products or produce it ourselves on our own little farmstead. We love creating new recipes as well as putting a healthy spin on classic comfort foods. The majority of the recipes on our blog are healthy with the exception of a few sweet treats. Check out our food blog for delicious recipes and meal prep ideas!
