a brief history of our journey

We moved on to this farm in October of 2020. We were mid pandemic and both of us were out of work because of it. The opportunity presented itself, for us to move here, in exchange for cleaning up the property and then reassess when we started working again.

We are on 2 acres that was completely overgrown with 3ft tall grass, sticker bushes, and all manner of scrap, trash and debris. It took a lot of hard work, but we were able to clear everything out and now the entire property is mowable.

The property holds an approx. 16ft x 30ft, 100+ year old building, that was used for the railroad that used to run through town. The entire building was basically just a shell at this point. It had been stripped down to its skeleton on the inside, had a leaky roof and the exterior had definitely seen better days. It had no inner walls, no flooring, no plumbing. Nothing but a loft space, a utility sink that wasn't hooked up, a cabinet, and a wood stove fireplace.

In the past 2+ years, we have slowly built this into a HOME. Using mostly recycled materials, we were able to put in flooring, walls, a bathroom, plumbing, countertops, shelving, etc. We added a covered front porch and replaced the roof. It is now a very cozy studio cabin.

This year we have started really focusing on the farm/homestead aspect of things. We purchased a greenhouse, extended our garden fence and look forward to a bountiful harvest.

We hope you enjoy reading about our journey going forward!!!

WOW! Sorry It's been so long Folks! We have been SUPER busy creating new designs for the Etsy Shop and working on the Garden. We have managed to get everything out into the garden and even dug trenches to allow the garden to be irrigated by the creek overflow. Everything is going VERY well! We appreciate all of your support!

We got a lot of yard work done and did a TON of work on the Etsy shop!!! I even managed to find a way to significantly lower the prices in the shop. So overall, it was a fantastic Memorial Day weekend!!!

Spent the day out in the yard. Mowed the lawn this morning, then spent some time in the green house. I managed to get some new seeds started and transferred a bunch of seedlings into larger pots. We got all of our hoses hooked back up and managed to run an irrigation pipe from the creek to the edge of the garden.

We spent the last few days tilling and excavating several areas of the property. Working to remove sticker bushes and level some bumpier areas, in order to make it easier to mow. The seedlings are doing great in the greenhouse! I am considering planting a second set of starts on certain plants, so we can get a second harvest off of them. Can't wait for the weather to warm up so we can start moving plants out to the garden.

It's been unseasonably cold here this year. In order to get our garden started on time, we had to purchase a greenhouse. It took us approx. 6 hours to set it up, and it has been worth every penny!!! We got our seeds planted and are impatiently waiting for them to sprout.

Happy Easter Everyone!

So excited to start tracking all the progress we are making! We began this journey a little over 2 years ago. We are on a small 2-acre farm that was overgrown and neglected when we started. The 100+ yr old studio cabin on the property, had pretty much been stripped down to just a leaky shell. We had to install walls, floors, plumbing, new roof, etc. We have put in a lot of hard work and effort, using mostly recycled materials and couldn't be more proud of how far this place has come.
