Introducing Tommy & Amber: TreeStone Farm
Hello great world!
This is our first time blogging. We are truly passionate about living close to the earth and being as self-sufficient as possible. We were inspired and encouraged by a friend to share our stories with others. Although we are far from perfection, we’ve been pursuing a homesteading lifestyle for over a decade. I guess some things like recycling building materials, composting, and no-till gardening are the norm for us and didn’t realize others might want to learn more or hear about what we’re doing.
We also live in a wonderful community with many other like-minded folk – giving us access to much of the knowledge we are interested in expanding into, such as saving seeds, installing solar panels, building a greenhouse and/or solar dehydrator and so on. We didn’t always live in such a supportive place. In fact, we intentionally moved to escape the isolation of a depressed and mainstream area where our lifestyle was often seen as weird. Somehow, being a vegetarian that recycles, and is interested in homebirth and cloth diapers put me off the chart of normal.
Anyhow, by embracing technology we are now never alone. With little effort, almost anyone can access information and be connected to others that have similar passions. Thank you for checking us out. We look forward to hearing from you!
