I’m a weekend homesteader spending my time away from the corporate grind getting back to my roots and planning a full time homesteading future!

Hey there! I'm Miranda, and together with my husband we're spending our weekends building a homesteading life with the goal of being fairly permanent homesteaders someday.

In spring of 2017, we bought 40 gorgeous acres in northern Minnesota. Old oak and pine forests, young deciduous acres, a giant wildflower meadow, and a small bubbling and burbling river make this my happiest happy place (yes, it even trumps the Boundary Waters!).

In our first year, we tore down a farmhouse whose roof had caved into the main floor, and an old barn that was half-collapsed; we dragged out over 150 car tires as well as several old washing machines and stoves, two car doors, and many other "treasures" the previous owners had scattered and abandoned throughout the woods.

To start off our second spring, we brought beekeeping into the mix, which has been wonderful and rewarding, but also nerve-wracking and exhausting. My crazy obsession with foraging has led to multiple gallons of jams and jellies, our salads have been perked up by wild ramps and onions, and my mojitos are much tastier made with homemade simple syrup, homegrown mint, and freshly picked berries. My chokecherry wine is definitely delicious, and I’m a big Chaga convert.

As of autumn 2019, our cabin is almost built and we’re ready for a cozy winter around the wood stove.

I'm excited you've decided to join us to partake in our homesteading adventures, tasting the love we put into each water-bath canned jam, feeling the snuggles our warm arm-knit scarves provide, relaxing into a homestead state of mind with our bath products, and more, truly living the homestead life.

    I'm a weekend homesteader and lover of all that comes with it - hikes through the woods. climbing high in the treetops, foraging for wild berries and other edibles. and definitely handcrafting the things I love most to share with others.
