Aloha, my name is Terri and I live on a nine acre homestead on the Big Island of Hawaii. My husband, and I have been living an off-the-grid lifestyle for over 11 years. We had to reinvent ourselves, coming from the mainland (Boca Raton, FL) and a pretty normal suburban life. I always wanted a farming lifestyle but it never seemed possible.
One fine day, I came up with five good reasons to move to Hawaii and presented them to my husband. To my surprise, he agreed and within 3 months we had quit our jobs, sold our house, and moved to a tropical fruit farm in Hawaii. From the moment we decided, we never looked back.
We went through a huge learning curve to try and figure out this new, off-grid lifestyle. We literally live somewhere between a modern life and one that is long gone.
A lot of the things we learned, came from doing them. So, we’ve made plenty of mistakes as well as had successes.
I’ve been writing this blog for about three years and I try and write at least one story a month. Most of my stories are about how to do things; like make milk products, make food from-the-land, care for animals, growing food, and keeping bees and various farm animals.
I hope you find these stories helpful and that they inspire you to try new things.
Many mahalos for reading, sharing, subscribing and your comments.
