About This Site

City Homestead is a behind-the-scenes look at setting up a homestead, market garden and coffee house. Open source, step-by-step plans evolve as the story unfolds.

What happens when you lose everything and you have to start over, but the corporate world you are used to is a far cry from the homestead you ended up on?


The words echo in my head as I stare at the flames in the fireplace.  We are burning the porch rails to stay warm.

It is nothing for people to criticize us, not knowing our story.  For years we remained silent, taking the cruel words to heart.  But this is our story.

What if poverty chose us?

What if there is a way out of it, and the way out is to trust YHWH?  How long will we wander in our desert trying to trust Him?
