We work hard to produce our food, coaxing it from the ground, rearing it by hand, and lovingly crafting it over the stove. Often, meal preparation generates leftovers…and if these go bad, it is a truly tragic waste of time and resources. Andrew and I have devised a simple solution to curb any food waste, and it is as easy as a whiteboard on our fridge.
- Simple Life Homestead
We're a husband (Andrew) and wife (Michelle). We both started out as teachers, and are in the process of turning ourselves into homesteaders. We're starting this grand experiment because both of our hearts yearn to live simple, sustainable, healthy lives, to care for our family and friends, and to honor our Father. We love to share what we learn, and we're willing to try any number of experiments as we start figuring this out. Though our starting point was a little house in the city with an itty-bity yard, a cat, our first baby, and a fledgling handmade goods business, we have started a journey that we hope ends in a family, an off-grid homestead, well-cared-for, happy animals, and a sustainably simple way of doing life. We FINALLY just moved to our 12 acres in the Ozarks this past June, and now the rubber has hit the road! We're newbies to this life, but w're excited to learn many of the skills that lots of people used to know and that our generation never learned. We're inviting you along for the ride.
