Learn to grow your own food sustainably, raise meat animals with kindness and preserve fresh fruits and vegetables to enjoy later in the year. Our homestead has 26 acres but you can use these same techniques in your small backyard! 

We are located an hour from Portland, Oregon - in the foothills of Willamette Valley.
