I’m a foodie-farmer, modern-milkmaid, sourdough-baker, medicine-maker, fermentation-aficionado, and a mother. I love sharing my passion for REAL, nourishing food and backyard medicine.  

Do any of these sound like you?

  • You want to make everything "from scratch" (even though others think you're crazy!)

  • You crave living at a slower, more connected pace

  • You want to feed your family nutrient-dense food

  • You're interested in growing and raising your own food

  • You want to know how to identify wild edibles and craft your own backyard medicine

  • You love creating with your own hands (and aren't afraid to get them dirty!)

...then you are in the right place!!


Wherever you are on your wellness or homesteading journey, I’d love to connect with you!
