Tracy at Our Simple Homestead Hidden away in Central South Carolina is a little farm where we call home.

Surrounded by pine trees, chicken farms, and lots of sandy soil we live a very simple lifestyle by the grace of God.

On any given day our free-range chickens and rabbits will greet you at the door, the coffee will always be hot, and a well-worn bible will always be waiting on the table.

We are modern day homesteaders who strive to keep the old-fashion skills our grandparents taught us alive and well in the 21st century.

Join us as we share life on our 20-acre farm, old-fashion recipes, simple living tips, and inspiration for those looking to join the homesteading movement.
