About us

We are Norm, Jamie, Drake and Garrett.

Norm, a city boy who works in IT is originally from Kalamazoo and moved to Sturgis in early 2001.  Jamie, a city girl who works in various business administration roles is originally from Muskegon.   Norm and Jamie were long-distance high school sweethearts who quickly drifted apart but nearly 25 years later found each other through social media and immediately reignited and started their family.  They settled in Fawn River Township in mid 2016 and promptly set to work on putting their property to use and learning the hard lessons of homesteading with nearly nothing but urban and suburban backgrounds.

Many mistakes were made.  Vast sums of money, sweat and sometimes blood have been put into doing what they thought was best not only for themselves but also their children as well as the community at large.

It is very much still a work in progress.
