Who Are We?

Andrew and Betty are an up and coming homesteader couple with a bright vision for the future.

To see 100,000 more people live a more holistic and sustainable life, all because of something they read on this site.

Andrew grew up in central New York on a 75-acre farm. Almost born and raised on a farm, you could say. Growing up on the farm allowed him to see that things come through hard work, dedication, and patience.

Betty grew up in the L.A. area of California. While her upbringing was almost the total opposite of Andrew’s, she grew up with a passion for healthy living keeping fit, and nutrition. Even though she only had the space of a sidewalk, she and her younger brother managed to grow a variety of trees, bushes and even a little veggie patch.

Through the use of a technology, a dating site, and the power of God, Andrew and Betty met up and enjoyed every moment they had together. After praying and believing that God wanted to come together for the rest of their lives, they got married in less than 8 months of knowing each other.

Never choosing the easy path in life, Andrew and Betty immediately moved into living into a van after getting married. All this happening while Andrew was finishing his contract in the military.

After getting separated from the military for refusing the SARS-COV-2 vaccine, Andrew and Betty took on the project of building out Andrew’s side hustle into a full-time income to keep them financially free and be able to to take on what they love:

Homesteading.

What Is The Ultimate Homestead?

The ultimate homestead is something that Andrew coined to mean something similar, but unique, to each and every individual person.

For Andrew and Betty, it’s the homestead that they’re building. It’s the community that they’ve planned to establish (in a local area and online), to teach others how easy it is to grow your own food, live more sustainably, and enjoy a healthier and better quality of life.

But for others, it’s coming to the realization that every person out in the world can start their own ultimate ‘homestead’, wherever they are, with whatever they have.

It’s realizing that you can help with less waste by composting organic material. It’s realizing that you can grow a portion of your food most anywhere you are. It’s realizing that no matter where you are in life, you need to start living like you’re already there, if you want to see it happen.

Live Like You’re Already There

The motto, Live like you’re already there, was birthed by both Andrew and Betty deciding to start incorporating the tools and experience they would need to run an efficient homestead.

They practiced canning food, freezing fruits and milk, making bread and yogurt. They even started to change their diet to most things they could grow themselves.

Live like you’re already there is the idea that whatever you want to do in the future, you need to start right now to work towards it.

Sure, you may want a homestead, and you’re saving up for it, getting out of debt, and dreaming of all the things that you’ll be able to do on it. But are gaining any experiences for it?

If you have lawn space, have you practiced growing anything?

Are you buying anything in bulk and practicing to preserving it?

Are you gaining the experience and knowledge right now to be able to do what you want in the future?

That’s what the this site was design for – to help you find what you can incorporate right now, to better set you up for success in the future.
