One part of our work is organic
We are alternative people, and live an organic mentality

We live in a small log house that we built ourselves with a forest just right behind. There`s also a small creek running through it.

We are closely surrounded by hills, trees, fields and the occasional wild forest animals that may pay a visit.

You`ll be able to enjoy a close-up experience of nature.

More than 27 years ago, my spouse and I met in Alaska. From there, we got married and decided to start our lives together in the world of agriculture.

We made use of skills and knowledge gained from Alaskan natives in our lifestyle be it hunting, farming, or growing organic vegetables. As much as possible, we aim to live a lifestyle sustained by the abundant beauty of nature that surrounds us.
