Welcome to Smith Farm 1914 where we will encourage you to seek a simple lifestyle, and a back to your roots outlook on life and health.
In 2017 we bought my husband’s family farm that has been in the family since 1914. You can read about our farm and the renovation journey it’s been through here.
We have been homesteading for nearly 12 years, but full on self sufficiency has been our passion since 2019. We feel convenience has taken society by storm and has strangled patience, self sufficiency, and skill right out of our hands, and we are trying to reconnect to those roots as much as possible and are constantly learning new things.
We have a saying here on the Smith farm..
“You won’t know, if you don’t try”
We let the circumstances and the land tell us what to learn next. We believe empowerment comes from trial and error. I want you to feel empowered, free and happy so I am taking you along as we slowly grow our homestead.
We are so glad you are here, friend.
the little Things...
I grew up moving back and forth between Minnesota and Idaho most of my life.
I spent a lot of summers in the mountains of Idaho with my great grandparents who lived completely off grid. Some of my best memories are of my great grandpa playing the banjo by oil lantern while we sit on the floor with the cool mountain air slipping through the screen door.
I first saw my husband when I worked at a 1950’s themed diner. He got off his Harley bike, and I swear he was cooler and better looking than James Dean. I was instantly intrigued.
I love to draw. I doodle all the time.
I gave my life to Jesus when I was roughly 12 years old. I had grown up with a Christian mama who tried her best to guide us to the Lord. I’m forever grateful for that.
I would much prefer mountains over the beach. Mountains run in my veins, I swear.
I’m the oldest of 4 siblings. 2 boys 2 girls. My Dad adopted me when I was about 6 years old. But in 2016 I found my biological father, and found out I have 3 other younger sisters! What a blessing! We see them once a year!
