Humble Beginnings

Welcome to our Site!

Our story starts as two city folks dreaming of more than city traffic and green lawns that don’t grow anything but weeds. God knew our dreams and set in His ways to bring us together. After getting married, we bought our dream property with some land in the upper midwest, and started our little family. We are Darrick and Kay: City Folk Goin’ Country.
We are strong believers in God and in all aspects of our lives pray for His will for us. He has given us many blessings, including but not limited to, our children, home, family and friends that love and support us in every crazy adventure we choose to take on!

We have two wonderful children: Bee who is eight, and Jr. who is, at the time of this post, six months old. We homeschool and love the family time we get together everyday.

We both have many hobbies, and many more we are looking to learn. We both love gardening, being outside, hiking, and swimming. Kay loves doing various crafts like crochet, sewing, cooking, cleaning, planning and organizing. Darrick loves everything to do with hunting, fishing, and has a great love of big trees (we have several on our land we can feature in a future post). We are interested in learning more about self-sustainable living, financial freedom, and giving more to God through missionaries and raising our children to do the same.

Our future garden and orchard

Our goal of this blog is to connect with other homesteaders, to learn from those who’ve gone before us, and someday teach those who dream of homesteading too. It is also a way to connect to family and for us to be able to go back and see our family and dreams grow and take fruit (no pun intended, maybe).

Thank you for joining us on this journey,

God bless,
Darrick and Kay
