A Farm Girl in the Making

Ann is the founder, blogger and face behind the brand A Farm Girl in the Making. She and her husband have transformed a single family mountain home on two acres into a sustainable homestead. They have left behind an urban life to reclaim a more traditional, simple lifestyle. They raise small livestock for meat purposes, including poultry, fowl, rabbits, and soon goats. In addition, they maintain a large garden, and preserve much of the food which they raise and grow.

While living a homesteading life Ann is also an encourager and teacher. She has made it her mission to bring as many as possible into the world of cooking from scratch, raising livestock for meat, gardening, DIY homesteading projects and preserving food as a modern homesteader.

Regardless of the skill level, Ann’s book will take you from canning, drying, curing, fermenting, storing raw foods, to various methods of freezing.
