Hi! I’m Jen, reformed big city, Milwaukee, WI girl now living in small town Colorado.
I met my husband in Wisconsin and have since relocated to a small town in Northeastern Colorado on almost 50 acres of pasture land. The name of the blog comes from our home. We have a huge porch and I imagine this is where I would share these experiences with you if you were visiting on the porch while our animals roam around in the pastures surrounding us. We are a hunting family sharing our experiences hunting, raising chickens, gardening, canning, cooking and more.
I am a wife, mom, hunter, photographer, gardener, cookbook hoarder, canning addict and hopefully, will someday be able to call myself a homesteader! I’m slowly learning more about self-sustaining life and started off the farm with 16 chickens (go big or go home) in April 2016. I dream of having donkeys, goats, and horses. For now, I’ll start with getting some fresh eggs and see where that leads us.
I am a certified health coach through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute and try my best to feed my family limited processed foods and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. To that end, I also am a Juice Plus+ and Tower Garden business owner. I look forward to sharing our adventures with you all.
