We are an off-grid, Eco-friendly, green living, organic, true homestead that sits in the middle of the Ozarks of southern Missouri on 5 acres of wooded private land. The homestead is 100% off the grid and will remain this way forever. That means we are not hooked to any commercial power sources, water sources, or technological sources. There is no TV at the community, no internet, no running water with sinks, no flush toilets, no running showers with hot and cold water options, no electrical outlets to plug into or anything else you might come to expect from mainstream societal life.
Why do we live this way you might wonder. It is because we believe the world is changing too fast and is now on a downward spiral to destruction. People’s health has spiralled out of control, power grids go down leaving those in the heat and cold to figure out how to survive. Water sources have been contaminated beyond repair, food is scarce and so expensive and poisonous that most can not afford to eat or to eat healthily. We feel that life is a path and the journey will lead you down the straight and narrow full speed ahead with side roads at every angle. The world has chosen a side path that leads to destruction.
We believe that the only way to end the path of destruction that the world has gone down is to stop where we are and back up. Back all the way up to where things went array. At that point, we can see that things were truly better, healthier back there. So we have decided to go backwards, well since forward just is not working. In the past, where our grandparents lived, our ancestors thrived and were healthy. So the life that we live is well set back in the past how things were done before things were polluted and contaminated beyond repair. We cut, split and haul our own wood for heating and cooking.
We haul in and collect our own water for use in all aspects where water is needed. We grow, forage, hunt and raise our own food and we do it all naturally, organic and heirloom. We build our own buildings using Eco-friendly, biodegradable methods and materials because, after all, we and all we have belongs to the earth and back to the earth it will go, eventually. We feel that the best gift we can offer the earth is to leave it as we found it or better when we are gone, by decreasing our footprint one step at a time. We have found peace, serenity, health, freedom, happiness and overall, a better life.
