I would like to share, since I started watching your channel a couple of weeks ago, I have already fermented my first sauerkraut, am going to begin skimming cream from our raw milk, make clabber, and have decided to start taking steps to start a garden in my parents’ backyard. My husband and I have watched homesteading content for a couple of years now, but yours is so well put together, I feel confident enough to try the things I’m seeing.

First of all thank you for all your videos and pantry chats! They are very encouraging as I continue to learn how to best provide for my family through gardening, homeschooling, and preserving

Carolyn, after 40 years of inconsistent results, my husband and I just had sandwiches on homemade bread that didn’t crumble or crack our teeth! It was light, fluffy and sliced with ease. What a super blessing! Thanks ever so much!

I did it!!! My very first Pressure Canning ever!!  Thank you, Carolyn! for your awesome classes and encouragement!!   I can’t believe how easy that was, and to think I’ve delayed for years because I was afraid. This is such empowerment but even more so is that knowledge and confidence I now have to can those wonderful foods and meals for my family!  Can you tell I’m excited? 😂.

Thank you so much for these lessons. It’s perfect information all in one place, the what, why and how to. (In the past) I have sat for hours trying to figure out which herbs that I need, and which ones are not necessary to start with. So, this is a blessing!

Excellent class and Instructional PDF. Thank you for presenting this information in an easy to understand format.

Meet Josh and Carolyn:

Josh and Carolyn both grew up with a love for the country life and watching things grow. Their first tiny garden started on a balcony 17 years ago and has now grown into a 40 acre homestead in North Idaho where they grow, preserve and prepare most of their own food right on the property while stewarding the land for the next generation.
