Two wild Alaskans living and learning on twenty acres of pristine forest. We are new parents who are mad about life, food, nature, art, and each other. We quit our day jobs to pursue our dreams.
What We Do
We do our best to live off the land; growing food, keeping laying hens, and foraging for wild plants and animals.
We eat, juice, and trade the majority of our crops, selling excess to neighbors, restaurants, grocery stores and farmer’s markets.
Salmon is a staple crop in our household. We smoke, can, vacuum seal, and freeze the red gold.
