Hello, I grew up in Ohio and spent a lot of my summers visiting the Ohio Amish. When I married my husband, he was an accomplished woodworker and outdoorsman. He enjoyed the fine craftsmanship and the simple Amish back-to-basics lifestyle. He also quickly developed a passion to learn all he could about living self-sufficient.

Together we enjoy growing our own gardens, fresh fruits, and making everything we can homemade. We have spent over 30 years on the back roads of the Ohio and Indiana Amish communities looking for products and knowledge for our own sustainable living. Along the way we have developed even more of an interest in this fascinating country sustainable culture.

My husband and I are dedicated to helping others find their own self-sufficient lifestyle as well as helping promote the small cottage based businesses and business owners that they have developed relationships and friendships with.

I have become a freelance writer of sorts to share our experiences, ideas and products we have found to be useful.

If you enjoy learning more about self-sufficient & sustainable living join me here on Hub Pages and follow my Hubs. Now with over 230 Hubs I hope you will find interesting helpful information and products that you can also use. Also be sure to drop me note if you have similar articles.
