We created this site to document our journey on our homestead in Oregon. We share everything from wholesome recipes to D I Y projects. Our homestead encompasses subsistence farming, raising chickens, bee keeping, and following a sustainable lifestyle. 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 excessive amounts of added sugar, the distance food travels to get to our plates, and the long list of chemical and unnatural ingredients. 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. Both of us are experienced "foodies" and love creating new recipes. The majority of the recipes on our blog are healthy, with the exception of a few treats. Check out our food blog for delicious & wholesome recipes.
