My name is Rashel. This is our family, on the left is Andrew and those are our two girls Isabella and Elizabeth.
I’m are so glad you’re here. I created this website to share what I’m learning on our homestead and to share the Life God’s given us through Jesus Christ.
A little about me…
I’m a classically training violinist. I started playing violin at 5 years old and continued my studies through collage. After collage, I taught at a music conservatory and privately. It’s tough to pay the bills in music, so I also majored in Business Management and Spanish. I worked in healthcare IT and marketing before I was promoted to a SAHM (Stay-At-Home-Momma!).
I now spend my days raising our little girl, taking care of my hubby, making nutrient dense meals, figuring out sourdough and cheese-making, tending the garden and preserving it’s bounty, taking care of our animals, keeping house AND… sharing what we are learning with you on this blog! 🙂
Our adventures in homesteading began with a book called Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats by Sally Fallon. Having always had an interest in exercise and nutrition, we realized that for optimum health, we would have to go back to nutrient dense foods, eating the way they did a LONG time ago. So we began taking road trips, up to five hours, to visit the nearest producers of grass-fed beef, pastured chicken, farm produce, and raw milk.
We soon realized we had the land and resources to produce all our food in our own backyard. Within two years we added a milk cow, a flock of laying hens, honeybees kept in a top-bar hive, a small herd of beef cattle, meat chickens, heritage turkeys, two livestock guardian dogs and planted a raised bed vegetable garden. I appreciated the information presented by the Weston A. Price Foundation so much, that now I’m a chapter leader for the organization.
Our day starts and ends outside. It’s a beautiful life that God gives us and we’re enjoying every moment of it. Life is good in what we affectionately call The Promiseland Farm ~ Living in the Land of Milk and Honey!
