Story
Tagline
Author, homesteader, self sufficiency expert, soap maker
Introduction
I'm the mother of three young adults, living on 32 acres in the middle of nowhere, where we built our own house, grow our own food organically, milk goats, make cheese and soap, raise sheep, spin wool, tend a flock of free-range chickens and turkeys. In addition to speaking nationally on sustainable living, I also teach an online course in goat husbandry for the University of Massachusetts.
