Growing our Dream

Even before we were married, my husband and I always knew we wanted to have a little homestead one day. Every weekend after a long week at our typical office jobs, we would sketch out ideas and plan the way we wanted our life to be. We tried to adapt our subdivision life to our dreams by planting herb gardens and growing a few vegetables, but it wasn't enough. We made the decision to change our life completely.


We spent a few months choosing the closest rural area we thought we could move to. Shortly after, by random chance, a friend who had just moved out that way invited us over. We fell in love with the peace and quiet immediately, it was like we were meant to be there. We soon found out from him about a large piece of property that was being foreclosed on, but was not officially up for sale. Since no one else bid against us, we were able to get the property for almost half the cost of our existing house. We sold our large house with the pool, and moved out to our little farmhouse on 5 acres which not only improved our life, but enabled me to quit my office job and work the property full time.

In a few years we had built our homestead from scratch using only recycled materials and were raising almost all of our own food. When the economy crashed and my husband lost his job, we worried about losing our little farm, but instead it became even more ours. Everything we needed was always there, from the scrap lumber to expand pens and fencing, to the expensive and repairable indoor growing setup that was literally thrown out by a neighbor. We even randomly found enough free irrigation equipment to run sprinklers across the entire property. Since we had lowered our expenses with the initial move and not financed any of our farm, we were able to grow more food and then sell our surplus at local farmers markets.

Ten years from our original plan we now farm a beautiful piece of land, home school our kids, have real relationships with our friends and neighbors, and more time with each other.
