Going Rogue

Rogue (adj): no longer obedient, belonging, or accepted and hence not controllable or answerable; deviating, renegade.

After living a life according to the general blueprint for success according to societies standards (school, college, medical school, residency and a solid job) we have realized something is missing. What we have realized is that if you follow the common path it will lead you to a common life. What we are realizing is perhaps the path we'd prefer is, "the road less traveled".

Which brings us to our plan...

We have purchased nearly 400 acres in the Rogue Valley, and are ready to embark on adventure! Our land is  a mixture of fields, forest land, streams, an old orchard and the site of an old homestead. What it doesn't have is any sort of structure in which to live, electricity, running water, pretty much any of the "essentials" for modern living.

We have started a large garden in which we grow onions, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, lettuce, asparagus, peas, green beans, potatoes, corn, sunflowers and, just to change it up, hops. Over the past several years we have been raising chickens, both for meat and eggs.

Our goal is to set up a sustainable homestead. We plan on being energy self sufficient, growing our own food, raising animals and eventually building our own home.

Join us on our journey!
