About Us

Hi there! We’re Marc and Jenn, just a couple of folks who decided to turn back the clock and live a life that’s a bit more old-school. Our home? A charming 10-acre woodland homestead tucked away in the gorgeous NE Washington state. Here, life is a beautiful challenge – unpredictable weather, a brief growing season, and the occasional wildlife visitor are all part of our daily routine. But hey, we wouldn’t have it any other way, especially with all the lakes and foraging treasures around us. This little slice of heaven is our sanctuary, and we’re totally in love with it.

Why did we start this website? Simple – we wanted to cut through the clutter and help others learn the homesteading ropes in a straightforward, no-nonsense way. We get it – every homesteader’s journey is unique, filled with its own hurdles and triumphs. And we believe that it’s those bumps in the road, those oops moments, that teach us the most valuable lessons.

Thinking about starting your own homesteading adventure? Whether you’re already getting your hands dirty or still daydreaming about your future plot of land, we’re here to help. We’re all about ditching the ‘everything’s perfect’ image of homesteading and focusing on what’s real – the hard work, the unexpected challenges, and the incredible rewards. We’re here to share honest, down-to-earth advice and support to kickstart your journey.

Our philosophy? Learn by doing. There’s nothing quite like hands-on experience, and we’re big fans of diving right in. So, go ahead – make mistakes, get your hands dirty, and discover the joys of learning as you go. Our website is our way of sharing our own stories, lessons, and insights we’ve picked up along the way. Join us, and let’s embrace this wonderful, wild world of homesteading together.

“ONE THING THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE IS THE PASSAGE OF TIME. THOUGH THE HANDS OF THOSE WHO HAVE HOMESTEAD BEFORE US CAN NO LONGER BUILD, THROUGH PRESERVATIONS OF THEIR TRADITIONS, THEIR STORIES LIVE ON."
