Welcome to Grace Grown Farm and Homestead
Here on our 14-acre modern homestead, we are learning to raise livestock – chickens, ducks and -coming soon- goats, grow a fruit garden, compost, bake sourdough and learn more traditional + sustainable methods of living. We believe in using permaculture principles, supporting local and small bussinesses + farms, loving Jesus and raising free range kids.
We are not experts in any of this but we love learning and sharing our journey as we grow – we hope you’ll follow along our journey as we share this beautiful life we’re building.
What is modern homesteading?
An excerpt from Jess Sowards book, The First Time Homesteader:
Modern Homesteading (verb): The act of living lightly on the land, of seeking sustainability and of growing food in a modern world. Involved in this lifestyle are conscious consumption, awareness of the partnership between humanity and the earth, a reverence for the beauty of life, the embracing of a slower pace, and a desire to eat well and steward well.-Jessica Sowards, Roots and Refuge Farm
