"Thanks for the warm welcome. We've talked about the reality show idea, but have never pursued it.  Not sure how it would go over with our neighbors as most folks live out because they want to be left alone. I gotta tell you that we've…"

So, who are these Four Country Gals?

We're four retired women, 2 are retired cops, 2 are related, one is called "Mom", and she has adopted all of us. Three are from an island in Lake Erie (Put-In-Bay), and one is from Oregon.We all live together in  a good-sized house in the middle  of the desert in SW Utah on 10 acres of tumbleweed and sand.Over the past 7 years, we've been building our soil on  about .1 acre and now have a Certified Organic Status.

Small Farmers

You are not an urban homesteader (or suburban) Your farm is more than an acre and may be hundreds of acres. You grow sustainably. You might have livestock out on grass. You sell what you sow direct to your customers via CSA, farmers markets, etc..See More

Profile Information

What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Fill in the Blank
Fill in the blank:
Four retired women who live in the middle of the Utah desert.
A bit about me:
We are all retired (2 were career cops), who are reinventing our lives on our little 10 acres in the middle of the SW Utah desert. We raise Certified Organic produce and also raise lambs for Saudi students and other locals. Most recently, we're raising goats for milk and cheese, with a full cheese project in the planning stages.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Mom and Bev made stuffed pork chops, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn and garlic cheese biscuits.
Currently reading:
American Farmstead Cheese
Currently listening to:
CNN
My latest DIY project:
Installing 2 20x52 double covered hoop houses as well as extending electric and water service. This includes relocating the main service/meter panel, and trenching nearly 300 feet at least 24 and sometimes 30 inches deep.
