We are a small, traditional values family living on 85 acres in an underground, geo-thermal, house in the beautiful rolling hills of North Carolina. Our lifestyle includes utilizing “lost skills” that were once commonplace. We grow as much of our own food as we can, forage for wild edibles, hunt, raise livestock and preserve the things we harvest. We cook on an old fashioned kitchen woodstove and heat our underground portion soley with a woodstove and wood from our own land. By simplifying, we have carved out a lifestyle that enables us to enjoy the solitude that comes with being somewhat “out-of sync” with the rest of the world.
