About Us


Hey there! We are so happy you’ve found us. Want to know more about us? Keep on reading!


Who Are We?

Well, we’re a couple just like many out there, who ran the rat race of corporate careers for many years, all while trying to keep a small homestead. But we made the decision to walk our family away from that corporate world several years ago to live a full time homesteading life.  Along with the blood, sweat and tears that it takes to run a full time homestead, we also established a certified Raw Milk dairy, an online homesteading supply company, and this blog to share our experiences.  Now we are empty-nesters who are loving our life and wouldn’t go back to the city for anything!  Lee Ann is the one who gets the joy and pleasure from writing this blog, with expertise in all things kitchen and home, herbs, book reviews and gardening.  Her knowledge, combined with some occasional input from “Mr. One Ash” about the animal husbandry, make up your team at One Ash Homestead!


Our Mission:

Our motto is simple:
Sharing how we homestead, one life experience at a time.

We were not born into a farming family. We self taught ourselves everything, and we are still teaching ourselves all sorts of stuff every single day. We know how difficult it is to find a community where you can ask questions without feeling “dumb”…or to find a community at all. Our ultimate goal is to be the ones to help you along in your journey. Have a question? Just ask us. Want us to write about something different?  Comment on a post or contact us here and we will do our best to answer it.

So, that’s about it for who we are. We’re happy you found us!  Make yourself at home and enjoy!

p.s. you might notice some of our posts have pictures with our old blog url on them (oneashplantation)… internet time is limited on the homestead so it may take a while to convert all of those to our new site!
