Meet Savannah from Urban Homestead Life
Welcome to Urban Homestead Life where I share about how my family of 7 lives a homesteading lifestyle while living right smack dab in the middle of small town America. Plus, I also share how to source healthy foods other than at your local grocery store and how to make yummy and healthy recipes from scratch.
Hi, I’m Savannah!
I married my high school sweetheart in 2012 and our lives have been blessed abundantly ever since. We have three girls and two boys and they are the most important things in our lives. William and I have always shared such a love for homesteading that not even living in town could stop us from doing that. We live in town on about 1/4 of an acre of land and we have it “all”. By all I mean all we’re allowed to have while living in the city. Apparently it’s frowned upon to have a dairy cow in town. Haha!
I’m an Illinoian “city” girl who deeply prays to someday live outside of city limits.
I met my now husband at the very young age of 14 and we have been together ever since. We married in 2012 and have had 5 kiddos closely after. Our family is the most important thing to me.
I enjoy all things homesteading related and have created an urban homestead right here in town. We have a garden, an “orchard” that consists of 5 fruit trees and about 20 chickens. Yes 20. I sent my husband to the store for chicken feed and he came back with more chickens. It’s a problem but a problem I like. Haha!
I am VERY passionate about sourcing healthy foods and supporting local farms and I am VERY passionate about teaching others how they can too!
One of my love languages, and probably the biggest one I have, is making food for people I love. Nothing says “I Love You” more than homemade food. I can’t wait to share recipes with you!
A few fun facts about me
I was in band in high school and played the flute, piccolo and tenor saxophone.
I’m OBSESSED with plants. I have over 50 of them and can’t wait to get more!
I went to school for Elementary Education and ended up not finishing school because I became a mom instead, and now I get the privilege of homeschooling all of my kiddos.
Follow along to learn how we have our urban homestead, locally source healthy foods and make from scratch recipes. I’ll, Lord willing, be sharing two blog posts a week documenting our journey of urban homesteading.
