Off Grid with Doug and Stacy
Doug and Stacy moved from the St Louis metro area 6 years ago to embark on a more sustainable life plan. They sold their big city house and liquidated 2 businesses and found 11 acres in rural Missouri. After studying 1800’s style log home construction, Doug set out to build the family home with minimal carpentry skills and completed the project in 90 days. They have embraced the pioneer lifestyle using oil lanterns and a wood cook stove. Doug and Stacy live with no solar or wind power and raise sheep, chickens, guineas,ducks, 2 horses and are also honey farmers. Doug has even mastered the skill of driving a horse and buggy. They have a 3000 gallon rain catchment system that gravity feeds their log cabin and 2 lawn hydrants for the animals. They also grow in a raised bed gardens and a Back to Eden Garden to supply them with the food they need for fermenting and living a healthy lifestyle.
Stacy is a Holistic life coach with 30+ years experience in the health and nutrition field. Doug is a self-taught carpenter and homesteader and shepherd. They have a passion for teaching others how to become more self-reliant and sustainable. Together they speak around the US at homesteading and prepper conferences and will soon be hosting educational classes on their homestead.
