In 1981 we began our homesteading journey on 6 wooded, hilly, rocky acres in western Massachusetts.  Through this labor of love, we have co-created a place of abundance and joy.  Clearing land, creating healthy soil, building our home and outbuildings, designing alternative energy systems, working alone and within community we have lived our version of “The Good Life”.
