Striving for a more homegrown, handmade, and natural life.
Hi, I’m Caitlin!
I’m the wife of an avid outdoorsman.
He fishes, hunts, and traps to provide us with fresh, lean meat all year long.
(And to send trophy pics around to his buddies for bragging rights.)
My greatest calling is being a Mama.
I have this little wild man, his sister due in December, and three angel babies.
I grew up on a small horse farm in western North Carolina,
but Dustin and I moved all over the state for his job our first few years of marriage.
After moving our meager container gardens from rental to rental, we knew we wanted to settle down with a real garden and small farm someday.
Now that we are back in our hometown, we have a small garden that feeds our family throughout the year and a flock of backyard chickens that treat us with fresh eggs, when they’re in the mood. Someday I will have dairy goats or a milk cow.
I am all about healthy eating and love creating meals from scratch with whatever we have growing in our garden. Over the last few years, I’ve also learned how to preserve that homegrown goodness to last us all winter long.
My natural “medicine cabinet” consists of essential oils and plant-based supplements that keep me and my family healthy by working with our bodies, and I work with an entire community of like-minded folks to share our knowledge and empower others to take control of their health.
Thank you so much for stopping by our homestead in progress!
We are slowly sculpting our own homegrown, handmade, and natural life, complete with lots of trial and error.
I hope you enjoy coming along for the journey!
