Most Homesteaders struggle because... 

  • Their daily chores and maintenance take all day
  • They are not on the same page as their partner(s)
  • They spend hours sifting through conflicting information on the internet
  • They have too many great ideas
  • They can't see the biggest weakness on their property
  • They can't see the true potential of their property

 Homesteading is complex, but it doesn't have to be complicated. Instead of stumbling through  hours of videos, books, blogs, and online courses, work with us to create your custom strategy and build the property of your dreams.

Homestead Design Packages

Our Homestead Design Package combines a series of remote video consultations and a thorough diagnosis of your personal and property resources. We present you with a clearly communicated design package of what your property can become.
