An Introduction of Sorts

We are Jami, Zach, Pip and Peep. Zach and Jami are two lucky souls and kindred spirits who happened to have a chance meeting through craigslist shortly after Jami moved to Maine in the Fall of 2012. It was love at first email and we have been inseparable since the first time we met. We live on a ridge in central Maine not far from the coast. We are carving out a small homestead site while being completely free of debt, the banks, and the power grid.

We put up a 12’ yurt in early 2013, and moved both adults and Pip, Jami’s young daughter into it shortly after Easter. We both hold full-time jobs that require an hour of commuting for each of us, but we are hoping to bring that to an end later this year as we slowly transition to living on and working on our homestead full time.

Zach cleared one acre of our 2.5 acres by hand 7 years ago, but it has been slowly reclaimed by the forest for the last couple of years. This year we are working on getting a garden and a young orchard started, getting poultry and pigs, putting in a greenhouse, a garage and a 20’ yurt before the chilly Maine Winter settles in.

Our goal with this blog is to provide you with inspiration and share our passion for living more simply.shoveling
