Hi, I’m Virginia (wife and mother of 5) and I’m the owner/writer of Homesteadyish. We live on a 5 acre homestead that was once my grandparents in southwest Missouri.
I’m so excited you decided to join me on our journey to a more self-reliant lifestyle.
Alot of you may be wondering what lead us to this type of lifestyle. We both grew up on small farms but got away from more than just a small garden with a few tomatoes and peppers. Both working away from the home.
Then our youngest son (3 months at the time) was diagnosed with cancer. That changed everything for us we got rid of all our debt and moved to my grandparents land. Getting our son healthy became the top priority. Along the way, we decided that eating stuff we had no control over or idea how it had been grown was not what we wanted to be putting in our bodies or our children’s.
I wanted to share our experiences of getting back to our roots with you. Because if I can go from killing every plant I looked at to growing my family’s food for the year any one can.
