Well here we are. A retired LEO 👮🏻♂️- Anthony, a nurse 👩🏻⚕️- Carol, and our college bound daughter Giselle 🙋🏻♀️ who decided to break free from the matrix and pursue a more meaningful and self sustainable life. We did what a lot of people dream of doing but are too afraid to do. In September of 2020 we sold our home in MA and most of our belongings, and moved our family to a very rural 25 acres in Morgan County TN. We live in what they refer to around here as “the mansions of east TN,”- it’s a trailer 🚋🤣🤣. On our homestead we have 17 chickens, 3 guineas, 1 bourbon red heritage breed turkey (Princess Peach) and 3 dogs- (Violet, Captain and Iris).
We were city people who just got tired of the hustle and bustle, fast paced mundane routine. And all for what a paycheck? A paycheck that means nothing should SHTF. We wanted to change our lives and become producers rather than just consumers. We hope to encourage others to take risks and show them that it IS possible to break free from the matrix. Yes giving up the comfort can initially be difficult. But you will grow to love this new simple way of life. You will be a healthier version of yourself. You will love the connections you make with your animals and the love shared. You will be so proud of the fruits of your labor come harvest season! And you will be taking the necessary steps toward providing for yourself and for your community which is a reassurance you will never get from any government.
We have lots of projects going on- we hope to add dairy and meat goats to our homestead this year, we are planning to raise meat chickens, we are massively expanding our garden, we are adding an orchard and Anthony doesn’t know this yet, but I want a couple more turkeys!
