We live with no solar / wind power / public water or well. We share our adventure to a sustainable life, growing our own food from vegetables to meat. We post videos DAILY and they range from HOW TO to EVERYDAY LIFE and NUTRITION on the off grid homestead. We were city folks just like you probably and wanted to enjoy life and have more control over our food. We share food recipes as well as natural remedies.

Great video, thank you for sharing. Love the yurt.

Those Mongolian Yurts are so cool. Also, I hate carpet! Impossible to keep clean is right, especially if you have pets. 😺🐶🐱😕

Did the last guy say Tuftex Greenhouse panels? Could you provide a link?
Cheryl Shenkle (1 year ago)
Thank you. Both of my small greenhouses from Harbor Freight were destroyed in a huge hail storm a couple of weeks ago. The panels were disintegrating anyway but now they MUST be replaced. With all the complaints, people with these greenhouses need to know the best way to replace them.

The toxic carpet thing is very true. Years ago I saw a documentary about the very same thing. The doco crew went into a average suburban house and, using a commercial carpet cleaning machine, cleaned the carpet. They later had the waste water from the cleaning analysed and it was found be so toxic, it had to be disposed of at a toxic waste facility. They found traces of vomit, urine, excrement, insecticides, chemicals from furniture polish and room deodorants as well as human skin and blood, food, traces of hot and cold drinks and a myriad other things. And that's why all of my carpets are heading to the dump.
Hey, guys. I don't care what videos you make. I love em all. Just keep up the great work! Bunny in NWFL
kimberly hilliker (1 year ago)

June McCamley (1 year ago)
love all the vıdeos ..especıally cookıng and tıps about healthy lıvıng.please please carry on
Dana Nelson (1 year ago)
Thanks for showing us around. Agree with the wood flooring guy. Carpet is harder to clean. You need an extraction cleaner or a guy who does it for a living. Glad you had a chance to meet your followers. I remember Al and Olivia, good to see them again.
Brenda Wallgren (1 year ago)
The Canada knife video was AWESOME! As soon as my Hubby got home from work I showed it to him and now we are both hooked! I love all of your videos. Both of you are so very lovable and I've learned a lot from both of you! Thank you!
Bernard Flood (1 year ago)
Greetings from Ireland. Seems like a great fair. I liked what the wood floor guy had to say.
dellasmom (1 year ago)

I love the travel videos! I only wished I lived nearer Vermont so I could visit. I love the yurt! This would make a great guest house for your international guests in your future! Hint-hint! :)) Perhaps in the not too distant future you guys will b an international learning/teaching /demonstration center! You guys are doing a great job...just keep on going strong!
Jhere McKenzie (1 year ago)

Hello there, I off the grid wantabe. Hopefully one day my dream will come true. I am so happy that my friend told me about you two. Love what I been watching. I want to learn all I can.
Lisa Booker (1 year ago)
Whoever said they don't like the videos AINT (yeah I said ain't lol) no REAL Homestead Homie! So pooh on them!!! I'm going through A LOT of the older videos and I love seeing the progress you've made as content creators. You're so much more laid back now. Much more comfortable. I noticed ppl picked on Doug a lot about his interactions with Stacy (which was none of their business in my opinion, that's between a husband and wife far as I'm concerned). That said, I think it was more nervousness cause your love for each other is absolutely obvious! Anyway....keep all your videos coming. If you enjoy making them I'm sure we'll LOVE watching. God Bless you both always. Love and hugs! 💕✝️💕✝️ Lisa

yes  carpet is unhealthy.
Philip Prigmore (1 year ago)
Don't know why anyone would find fault with any video you make. Personally, I enjoyed your trip. Just DON'T FORGET YOUR COMPUTER THIS TIME. Glad you are having fun. P.S. my carpets are not toxic, I don't have any. Hardwood floors are the only way to go.
Camille Tigart (1 year ago)
Love the travel videos and the cooking videos. They are all great and inspire me to live simpler and healthier. Keep up the good work.

Jamey Fisher (1 year ago)
This was fun! Careful on wood floors they can be toxic too! Because some companies dip the wood in formaldehyde!!!!
Judy Brooks (1 year ago)
not so crazy about this video...
Cyndi Foore (1 year ago)
I would have loved to have been there!!!
Carlene Larose (1 year ago)
new carpet is very toxic, formaldehyde is used as a preservative and out gasses into your house. Love all your vids plz take me along on your travels. Thank you. XOXOXO. # cuckoo squad
Jamey Fisher (1 year ago)
Carlene Larose lots of companies dip hardwood floors in formaldehyde as well! So everyone please be careful
Judy Brooks (1 year ago)
Stacy I love your cooking videos and use of natural ingredients to keep us healthy
Cyndi Foore (1 year ago)
Dried fruit! Yes, that's what I can do with all the kiwi and strawberries I've got!
Very good video.
Dried fruit leather Kombucha. Interesting.
Jeannie Griffin (1 year ago)
I loved the Mongolian tent homes, they can be attached to one another to make bigger areas and have privacy too if you have a big family. The tent people in that area and into Turkey back in the 13 th Century when there were huge areas of fighting just like we have today. Aleppo is one of the areas where they lived. Damascus and so forth. Interesting. What was their site name? I couldn't catch it.

risa bear (1 year ago)
Of course it is; just like new-car interiors. Lot of off-gassing. We find and clean old natural fiber rugs for our use.
Loved the Canada video, what wasn't to like? It was a nice change up.
I sure wish I could afford wood floors ☹️

Hi guys! Just wanted to add to the list of those who love your away adventures. YES, PLEASE CONTINUE SHOWING US THE OUTSIDE WORLD! And did you see those beautiful, handcrafted bee hives from HBhiveCO, OMG - wish I was there, but at least I get an idea of what it's like because of you:), thank you! And I am a homestead homie from Oregon!!
My Living Journal (1 year ago)
I love it all! Love to see what you are doing in your day to day life. I do have a suggestion & you can think about it. The title suggests getting info. about toxic carpet but it takes about 3/4 of the way to get that far & people who are really wanting this info. may not watch that long. Here is a thought: In editing, put that first & then add the rest of the wonderful video after the man speaking about the carpet. For the regular viewers, it's great the way it is but for people searching for this info. in the YouTube search box, it could be a little frustrating & they might pass up on a wonderful channel like yours. Anyways, not trying to tell you how to run your channel but it was just some thoughts I had from a diff. perspective. I only recently this past week stumbled upon your channel & so glad I did! Thanks :))
Nicole White (1 year ago)
I like the adventure videos! Gives variety to the channel... keep up the great work!
Terry Walters (1 year ago)
Doug and Stacy! Shalom from south Texas!I LOVE the traveling videos. I rarely get a chance to leave the homestead because of animals and such (not to mention money), so I get to travel vicariously through y'all. KEEP IT UP! Also, I've been reading The Mother Earth News since issue #1 (Jan 1970), and have ALMOST the complete collection. I stopped reading them a few years ago, but have recently resubscribed. I've always been curious about the MEN Fairs, so thanks for allowing me to finally get a small glimse of what they're like. My wife and I love all your videos, although she tends to gravitate toward the cooking and I love the "outside" ones. We both enjoy them all. KEEP 'EM COMING!
jackie bholat (1 year ago)
I enjoyed your trip. Please take us with.
Roseann Martinez (1 year ago)
Really enjoyed it!
Preaching to the choir on carpeting. I once ripped up an old carpet without a mask n goggles and was sick for a week. Puffy eyes and horrible lung pain and coughing. I got poisoned.

We like to see Doug & Stacy "Free Ranging".
Chelin Fusco (1 year ago)
We personally love these types of videos and all of your videos. We thought the knife videos were awesome. Your visit with Eric from Life in Farmland was also great and thanks to these types of videos we are getting to know other Homestead Homies, like FarmAlarm. Great folks, with lovely families; the kind of folks you look forward to meet in person some day. Keep up with your awesome videos. Stacey: You look great! Love your skirt. Oh, and Rain Country is another homestead homie we like. So there, I hope this is motivating for you both. ;-)
