Hello,
My name is Angie and my husband's name is Rick. We were referred to Permies by Justin Rhodes, a Homesteader YouTuber. My husband and I are honing our skills so that we can work our land efficiently and sustainably once we find our land. My childhood was divided by farming life and city life. I have always loved the outdoors, animals, and being self-sufficient. My husband is a city boy through and through. But as our lives have entwined together, he has come to love the life that I yearn for. We both want to live a humble life with our children on acreage. We want to learn how to be good stewards of the land and of all the animals that we will raise.
We are excited to find a community of people that are like-minded. We look forward to learning new skills that we can put in our toolbags for a later adventure.

Welcome to permies!! Your story sounds rather parallel to ours, but our kids were almost all grown, and the youngest was living with his mom, by the time we were able to make the leap. God luck! You've got this!

Welcome to Permies! We are also in a place of learning the skills to hopefully one day use once we have the land to use them. It is awesome your husband is supporting you and this journey as you learn together. There is so much to learn!
 
if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
