About the 'Steader

Welcome to the Ten Acre Homestead, I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm the Newbie 'Steader, the voice behind this here blog.  Equal parts girly-girl, working woman and aspiring homesteader this is my place to chronicle our family's journey from urban wilderness to off-grid homestead. 

My husband and I are working toward being able to make a move to full-time homesteading, however, that doesn't mean that we aren't homesteading right where we are.  There is a lot to learn, skills to develop and much that can be done right here, right now.  I hope to be able to share those things and to learn some new ones from those of you kind enough to share your experiences with me.

You can email me at: wildhorseoffgrid (at) gmail (dot) com or leave a comment on this blog.
