My Story…..

Hi, I’m Lori Free. We have 5 amazing kids we homeschool, raise animals, and grow our food to provide for our family. We love working the land, running through the woods, and playing in the creek.

When I started my homesteading journey, I felt overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start. I was reared on home cooking, and I wanted to feed my family the same way. When I was in charge of shopping and meals, I realized the labels were full of so many additives and sugar. I had begun to get headaches and was very tired, so I began to look for clean foods. Cooking from scratch with whole foods and using natural remedies became my mission.

Although learning these skills seemed very intimidating to me, I always desired to learn more and live an independent life and have healthier food. Cooking it myself was cheaper than buying some of the healthy options at the store. So, I first began with whole foods. I learned basic skills right where I lived, cooked simple whole meals, made bread with my own sourdough starter, made butter, yogurt, and natural remedies, and grew an organic garden. Then, when we moved we added animals, so I could provide healthier food. 

Now, I have gained confidence in learning these skills and can cook simple meals from scratch, make natural remedies, and raise our food. 

We are a city couple with 5 kids turned farmers and now we live on acreage. I have a passion to show you how to develop homesteading skills wherever you live. I did many of these skills in my previous home.

Homesteading is inside of us. This way of life may be hard, but knowing you worked hard to achieve a homegrown life makes it that much sweeter. I feel it makes things slow down a bit….and I crave a slower-paced life.

I know it can work for you and your family. You can do it!

A little bit about me…

  • I’m a follower of Jesus
  • I’m from Spfld, Mo. where a few famous people were born. I moved to Texas when I married my best friend
  • My favorite date with my husband is to get take-out and eat quietly somewhere and just talk
  • My Duggar cousins had shows on TLC
  • I’ve had 5 natural births…..firstborn at the hospital and 4 were born at home. Three girls then two boys. I had my first miscarriage when I was pregnant with number 6.
  • My kids’ names spell HOME…all by accident. Had M, H, O….If we had a fourth I already had a name and I realized that would spell home…crazy! Now with 5 we have M squared.
  • My mom is an identical twin….when they married their last initial stayed the same. they both had a girl first, then a boy, and they both have 5 grandchildren!
  • We have always homeschooled
  • I didn’t know I loved farming so much…..cooking from scratch and a natural life was very important to me. That love grew into a deep passion for the land and all the joy I have working it. I love my homegrown life.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you in our homestead community. Can’t wait to hear from you.
