My name is Diana and I’m a Vancouver Island homesteading mama, elementary school teacher and now farmer.
A little more about our family…
I’m an elementary school teacher and my husband is a mechanic by trade, but here on the homestead is where our hearts lie.
We bought our 10 acre ranch in 2015. A little piece of paradise we could call our own on the foothills of a beautiful mountain range. With a few outbuildings and a neglected tiny farmhouse we started our journey in becoming self reliant homesteaders.
We work towards having a successful farm business, that allows us to eat our own homegrown, organic, grass fed, food for free. We work hard so that we can eat healthy and enjoy it!
Here on the ranch, we raise a small Scottish Highland cattle fold, heritage breed chickens and our two young boys. We are starting an orchard, have a large vegetable garden and have started raising bees.
Here on this site you’ll find all things homesteading. This is the place to be if you’re interested in learning more about raising farm animals like chickens, ducks, goats, turkeys, lambs or cows. I’ll share with you how to afford to get started and how to start making money from your homestead wether it’s the backyard, a small chunk of land, 10 acres like us or more.
I help others learn how to produce as much of your own food as possible from the garden, orchard and farmyard and share my favourite recipes for sharing and preserving your harvest.
If you’re interested in any of the products we produce on the farm, shop our online store or contact us for more information.
