Josh and Carolyn

About Josh and Carolyn

Josh and Carolyn both grew up with a love of the country life, good food and watching things grow. Their first tiny garden together started on a balcony in a city apartment 15 years ago and has grown along with their family to producing over 75% of their needs. Now on 40 acres in North Idaho, they raise all of their own meat, 90% of their dairy products and 75% of their fruit and veggies…all done naturally while being stewards of the land and caring for a family of 10! This passion for country living, good eating, and nurturing life has grown into a passion for sharing the journey and lessons learned with others. It is their desire to be a blessing and encouragement to others seeking the beauty and abundance of a healthy homesteading life!
