Hello, and welcome to the Little House on the 100 Farm! My name is Jenn, my husband’s name is Glen, and our son’s name is Evan.
This a blog about all things I love in life. You will find lots and lots about my family, faith, and farm on here. In 2011 we made a big decision and moved nine hours south of our family in Michigan and started calling Kentucky our home. We’ve been here almost five years now, and even though it was a rough start for me, I have grown to love it here. We moved onto 100 acres in South Central Kentucky in 2012 after deciding our big, beautiful, 2600 sq ft house was not necessary and actually excessive for what we were trying to achieve in life. On this 100 acre piece of land we bought was a three-sided tractor shed and we decided to convert that into our new home. Our home now is approximately 1100-1200 sq ft and considered small for today’s standards. You can read all about that here.
We’ve gone through many changes in our lives over the past several years – including lowering debt, job losses, cutting out television, and secondary infertility all while simplifying and striving toward a more self-sufficient lifestyle. We love hunting for our meat, cast iron cookware, and baking from scratch. I love learning about my grandparents’ generation and how they survived before becoming so reliant on outside resources. I believe that returning to our roots is where we need to focus during this day and time.
This will be my sixth year of homeschooling my son. He has never attended public school, but most people will tell you he’s a great kid so we must be doing something right. This was the first decision made that led us down a path of living differently than what the “world” would consider normal.
I became a Christian at twenty-three years of age and lived a life that was definitely not Christian before that. That means I get it…I’ve been there. I’ve made bad choices and done bad things. Actually, I still do lots of things I shouldn’t do. So if you’re if looking for a girl who makes a lot of mistakes, loves baking homemade bread, DIY projects, and making all different kinds of things from scratch, you’re in the right place.
I hope you enjoy this blog and stick around to learn beside me on this journey called life. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
