Hi!  I’m Karmen.

Unlikely Homesteader is a blog I started to journal my family’s adventure in homesteading.  We grew up urbanites, but somewhere along the way decided that raising animals, growing food, and in general, living more sustainably was the right path for us.

We are definitely learning as we go!

I really want to share our journey with you in a real and unfiltered way.  I hope you get the chance to laugh with us, cry with us, and learn with us and hopefully you will walk away from the blog having learned something new, gleaned inspiration, and laughed until your sides hurt.

Before you get started, find out why we are ‘Unlikely‘ Homesteaders.

I am Karmen and I am excited to take you on this journey with my family.  When we first began our homesteading adventure I spent hours poring over books, articles, and blogs about every facet of the life we were trying to create.  Raising baby chickens?  I read no less than 50 different articles.  Rehabilitating an old orchard?  More reading.  I won’t lie.  There is a wealth of information out there.  There are so many experts that know what they are doing, how to do it, and when to do it.  Hell, homesteading is not exactly a new way of life.  And it was good to hear the experts tell me what to do.  But let’s face it… I’m a Pinterest fail waiting to happen.  There weren’t a lot of blogs out there that offered a gritty and honest account of going from urbanite to homesteading.  I felt lacking in a relatable story.  Thus, Unlikely Homesteader was born.
