About Us

Hi there!

Welcome to Green Journal Homestead!

This is where we are documenting our journey to becoming more self sufficient and self reliable. We’re tracking our wins and our losses and hoping to maybe inspire a few people along the way.

Homestead areas


We grow much of our own produce. We have at least 2 garden plots 25′ x 50′ that we try to keep going spring through fall.


We have an ever growing flock of chickens. We started with chickens for a source of eggs and have expanded into raising chickens as a source of meat.


We have a section of the barn dedicated to raising rabbits, primarily for meat purposes.

Fruit and fruit trees

We have berry bushes as well as a few different fruit trees.
