Tired of the stress of city life and motivated by a desire to be more self-sufficient, my husband and I decided to trade life in the busy suburbs for life on a quiet country homestead. In the fall of 2012, we moved to an acreage in rural Northeastern Oklahoma where we are learning to live off the land. We share our small acreage with a large garden, our four shih-tzus, and a growing flock of chickens we raise for meat and eggs (Lavender Orpingtons, Buff Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds, and American Bresse). 

 If this is your first visit, you can read here to learn more about who we are and how we got here.  On the sidebar, you will also find a number of other posts documenting our transition from city to country life, tips on natural gardening, recipes from our kitchen, and ideas for frugal, simple living.  We also invite you to follow our regular contributions to The Traditional Cooking School by Gnowfglins.

Currently I (Jenny) am taking a break from regular blog updates in order to dedicate more time and energy to my work as a freelance digital artist.  You can view and purchase some of my practical, printable creations (including a homespun style day planner) at my growing Etsy store front Scratchy Pixel and also on Zazzle.

We still want to connect with fellow homesteaders!  We invite you follow our updates on Instagram,  follow us Pinterest, and drop in to see us on Etsy!

Thanks for stopping by!
