Learn the skills and rhythms of homesteading and homemaking for simple living.

Over 150 years of living off our farmland has given us rich wisdom in homesteading: raising animals (cows, sheep, goats, pasture pigs, horses, donkeys, and chickens), growing a garden, working the land. As well as, homemaking: cooking and baking, canning, and keeping a home. Sustainably living with the seasons. Seeking to own less and live more through the old adage; use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without.

Hi there!

I’m Megan

I am the fifth generation to have been raised on our family farm in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. I love the feeling and lifestyle of old-fashioned and traditional living. It is my passion to create a slow and simple life that honors our heritage and bridges the divide of generations to keep those cherished memories alive while making new ones. Follow along with me as I reconnect with my roots to preserve and share the old-fashioned ways of living from the garden and pasture to the farmhouse and kitchen.

    Our New Adventure

    Becoming An Antique Market Vendor

    What is The Findry? It is a thoughtfully gathered collection of seasonal antique and vintage household items that celebrate the beauty, craftsmanship, and enduring charm of a bygone era.

    Although being a vendor is a new adventure for me, I have always had a love for all things old. They just don’t make things like they used to. That’s why sustainable items from days gone by with all their beautiful detail, durability, character, and charm continue to add a timeless touch to most any home.

    You may have seen sneak peeks in my Instagram stories, but I wanted to take you behind the scenes and share some tips I’ve learned along the way.
