About Our Homestead


Growing a healthy Beard


Hey, I’m Charlie, just a dude in his early 30’s from the Piedmont of North Carolina.  My love for Science and awe of Nature somehow steered me into all of this “homesteading” business.

I wasn’t raised on a farm or homestead, but I did spend most of my free time in the woods as a child and adult.  I started doing organized research in 2012 and bought my first piece of land in early 2014.  Things have gone great so far, but everything takes 3 times as much time & money, as with most things in life.
