The Team

That’s who we are, a team. A husband and wife living the simple life….as I like to say. We have been dabbling with our own path in homesteading and homeschooling for a few years now, and have finally found our stride. I hope you enjoy sharing in our passions and adventures on Wilson Hollow Farm. But first…get to know us!


Mom and Wife

Hey y’all! I’m the face….per say, of our YouTube channel and main social media person. Usually, if you’re messaging us I’ll be the one to answer. As a previous homeschooler, I’m a huge advocate for home education and generally follow a mix of Waldorf with a splash of Charlotte Mason (depending on the child)….which I’m sure y’all have already seen. I enjoy the simple things in life like breastfeeding, gardening, crafting, and being crunchy.

Dad and Husband

What can I say…I’m a pretty simple guy. I really love rustic cabins, restoring my family’s old barn, and doing things the old fashioned way. The Foxfire Books are practically the Bible and working with my hands is the most satisfying thing to do. My goal is to get our homestead to be totally self-sufficient, but I’m definitely not a prepper….that’s just too much. When I’m not on the homestead, I’m at my day job working in law enforcement.

Family is everything to me and it’s my top priority even though my wife tries to repress my love of natural rustic furniture….because it’s not “Modern Farmhouse”.
