Striving towards self-sufficiency in the Last Frontier
About the Alaska Homestead
We’re dreaming of self-sufficiency in the great State of Alaska. The hubby and I love working on our little acre and a half Alaska homestead, building, planting, crafting, raising, cooking, baking, and learning.
I was born and raised in Alaska, and thankfully God sent me a guy who loves it as much as I do. We love the whole idea of self-sufficiency in AK, no matter how difficult the elements make it. We hunt moose and caribou every fall, we fish for salmon and halibut, plant a garden every year, and are developing an orchard and vineyard.
We bought our dream cabin and promptly began renovations. In the fall of 2013, we decided to turn our property into a homestead and start working towards a more healthy, self-sufficient life. Land needed to be cleared, a greenhouse built, fences put up, and a chicken coop built. It has been a very busy few years. We would love to eventually add goats, pigs, bees, and perhaps even a cow, but we may need to buy some more land for all that.
Our true goal for the homestead is not self-sufficiency, but God-sufficiency. We know our Father provides all good things for us and want to make the most of this wonderful life He has blessed us with.
