From the Homesteaders

Jack and Kathy

Everything from the 1800's



My husband Jack and I are homesteaders in NY. We make our own extracts of everything. If it's used in cooking or making soaps or lotions, we do it. It's too easy. 

We make our own cheese, butter and yogurt. We grow all our own food. Meat included. Our total grocery bill in a year is about $200. We buy sea salt, black peppercorns, rennet and cat food for a spoiled feline.

We raise goats, chickens and pigs. We sell produce and animals. I make quilts and he is a creator of everything that we need (when possible).
