About Mary’s Journey to Homesteading

Hello and welcome! I’m Mary, a loving rancher’s wife and homeschooling mother of 4 children. I’m originally from Southern California, now living in the middle of nowhere Nebraska. It all started when I met and married my real life cowboy.

When I became pregnant with my first child, I began to research everythingLearning about the chemicals that were in cleaning products inspired me to ditch the toxins and create my own natural cleaning products.

But this is where the story begins. Moving to the middle of nowhere taught me a lot about country living (with a bit of culture shock thrown in!) and it is what catapulted my natural living journey

All of this experience is what drives my desire for creating a better & healthier lifestyle for my family.

When we aren’t busy wrangling little ones… or cattle, goats, chickens, and ducks, we are working hard on building our homestead dreams from scratch. 

This means constantly reevaluating and testing processes to find what works best for our family & sharing what we learn along the way.

I honestly never would have imagined or planned this life. I certainly never dreamed of living my own version of Little House on the Prairie. 

Or that I could make a career out of a blog while living in the middle of nowhere. And sometimes with some really sketchy internet!
