Homesteading Resources (coming soon)

We believe our dependence on corrupt systems is what enables them to exist. We have to withdraw our support, return to a life more connected with nature, and become producers rather than consumers.

Homestead Design Services

Concept Designs starting at $7,400 (up to 100 acres)
Homestead Design starts with a Concept Design. We combine a series of remote video consultations with you and your family and leverage technology and digital tools to diagnose your personal and property resources. After 4-6 weeks, we present you with a clearly communicated design package of what your property can become. This phased concept plan includes recommended next steps (3-5 years), and a series of follow up video consultations to support you into the future.
After completing a concept design, we provide a number of detailed design services for our clients including food forest planting plans, earthworks and water harvesting plans, construction detail drawings for farm buildings, full 3D property walkthroughs and flyovers, and more.
