Rock Bridge Farmstead

We are happy homesteaders living on just under 3 acres in Kentucky. Our homestead consists of all kinds of creatures including bees, goats, chickens, sheep, ducks, geese, a farm cat, a big fluffy great pyrenees, and a large garden. We love connecting with other homesteaders, or people who are interested in this lifestyle.

Our all-natural salves, balms and body products are available to purchase on our Etsy shop. All of the good stuff, no weird synthetic ingredients. No parabens, paraffin or any other artificial ingredients.

We started our podcast in hopes of sharing the stories of other homesteaders. We hope to share encouraging words, inspiration, wise words and funny mishaps, to keep us all going on our homestead journey. Give it a listen!

Homesteading with Kids

Homesteading with children is a huge joy! Homesteading with children is also very difficult. Any other homestead parents out here struggle with the balance? Our children are still toddlers, and getting basic tasks done can be difficult. I can’t begin to tell you how many timesI’ve had to put down my shovel or stop whatever project I was working on mid-way.
