We're not homesteders as such, but we do live a simple life that is in touch with the cycle of work and rest is evident throughout nature. Our approach to living, based largely on the reduction of wants and a mostly non-monetary return from our organic horticulture, bee keeping and other sorts of labor. Were living the good life along the Mississippi river valley in north eastern Iowa.

Chips off the Old Block.
Hickory and Ryder Schnaithmann with their wives Amanda, Trisha and the newest member of the tribe, Mason were back home to see friends and family and we were lucky enough to be invited to the gathering.
Their Pops, Jim is a stone mason, woodworker and ballet dancer.
Mart, Hickory and Levi snack on Joanie's egg rolls in front of a huge stone hearth that Jim built.
Jim has an amazing collection of old crock pots and stoneware as well as copper cookware.
