Country Wisdom for the Homegrown Life

Grab a coffee, pull up a chair and let’s get to know each other!

hi there! I’m McKenzy

I live in a tiny, log house with my family of six. Together, we homeschool and homestead on our 7 acres nestled in Central Pennsylvania. Along with running the farm, I enjoy educating others on sustainable farming practices, gardening and preserving the harvest on my Instagram and Youtube Channel, Little Farm Folk!

Whether you are here as a hobbyist looking to dabble with your raised beds or a serious homesteader looking to put up a year’s supply of vegetables, this place is for you!
