I’m a backyard farmer, blogger, chicken wrangler, wearer of many hats and occasional crazy woman.
I’m so excited to have you here! I created this blog just for you! To show you that no matter your experience level or available space, you can live sustainably & grow your own food. You can do it all without toxic chemicals, fancy organic fertilizers, or spending a fortune at your garden supply store.
We’re a bit of a different breed aren’t we? Homesteaders, urban farmers, the eco-conscious… whatever it is that we call ourselves, we often fit into a different viewpoint or paradigm than a lot of other people. Our fingernails are often dirty, our face is usually smudged and our hearts are full at the first harvest. We are a group amongst ourselves, connected to the rhythms of the land… concerned with the musings of our critters and I respect, cherish and celebrate that. I’d be thrilled if you would like to stay connected with me and become a part of my online tribe! Not just to send articles to, but to get to know and support your gardening, green-living and chicken keeping pursuits!
We get into all kinds of outlandish sustainable living & urban farming topics here. From how to unclutter your mailbox of junk-mail to raising black soldier fly grubs for your chickens to eat. We do DIY projects like building your own chicken brooder and non-toxic rustic shelves for your wall.
If you’re interested in being more self-reliant and living sustainably you’ll like this blog! If you are obsessed with chickens, you’ll LOVE it! If you’re not obsessed with chickens… give it time. You will be, lol! If you’re ready to experience the joy, frustration and sheer triumph of putting food on the table that you grew (maybe with some chicken help) totally organically, you’re in the right place.
