Encouraging Simple Living Through Purposeful Work

Where the herbalist and the farm unite.

You can be an herbalist without a farm. You can be a farmer without being an herbalist. But what happens when the two come together? It makes a beautiful world of food and health freedom.

Meet Amy

Farm living has always been a love of mine. From raising chickens, growing a garden, raising babies, loving my husband, and living a natural life—the homesteading life suits me well. But sometimes, I still eat oreos. I am an author, photographer, mama, wife, homesteader, and homemaker. And I'm here to share life, inspiration, DIY projects, recipes, and more with you!
