A little about us!
We started homesteading in 2017 on 5 acres of land. Dreaming of a more self-sufficient, “simple” lifestyle we set out to build our dream life with our 3 children in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We worked our land for 2 years before a job loss became a blessing in disguise! We had two options, find another job that would keep us away from our family and farm, or grit out teeth, lace up our boots, and put in the work to build our homestead into a full-blown business. What started out as a few backyard chickens quickly multiplied into dairy goats, rabbits, turkeys, & pigs! As our love for farming grew, we slowly discovered mentors like Joel Salatin, Allen Savory, Greg Judy, Gabe Brown & Justin Rhodes. They set us on a path of soil regeneration, and we went against the grain of the stereotypical farmer. We became the “weird” ones that didn’t use chemical fertilizers, insecticides, or antibiotics. The love of farming was in our veins and raising food for ourselves just wasn’t enough anymore. We made the leap and made our small homestead into a full-on business, and we now offer pasture raised chicken, Thanksgiving turkeys, rabbit, eggs, goat milk, and goat milk soap! We are Lonnie, Elizabeth, Nicholas, Madelynn, and Easton of Mountain Spring Homestead!
Our Vision for our farm:
Although we are not the pioneers of regenerative agriculture, we hope to be an influence on its current and future adaptation in farming. We want to be the bedrock of microbiological creation and multiplication. We want to capture and store carbon for feeding plants and grasses which will in turn feed our animals. We want to be the premier location for providing the best quality meat, food, and holistically created goods in North Central Washington. We want to provide our community with the resources needed to provide their families with education on farming and food for their freezers. We are Mountain Spring Homestead. A local, pastured based, family owned, and community serving farm located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
