Whether you are hoping for a glimpse into farm life in Northwest Montana, tips on gardening, gluten-free recipes, or lifestyle inspiration, I'm glad you've stopped by. I'm Alyson: farmer's daughter, Jesus lover, coffee-drinker. Mom to two farm kids and wife to a hardworking man. I live in God’s Country. In the majestic mountains of Montana. The Big Sky State. I grew up here on our family’s farm just minutes from Glacier National Park. My husband Casey and I were both born and raised in Northwest Montana. We’ve got field dirt under our fingernails and fresh mountain air melded to our souls. We love where we live. It has been said one person’s postcard is another person’s normal. I definitely live in the postcard; I promise it never gets old. After 13 years teaching high school English, I work from home now where I help run the family farm, manage our guest property The Red Barn, keep a small vintage and home decor shop, and most of all-savor the simple moments of being mom. On our little corner of the farm I raise chickens, pastured pork and tend a large, crowded garden where the flowers mingle happily with the vegetables. I’m happiest on my knees in the garden dreaming of nourishing, future meals I’ll prepare from what starts out looking like a mud hole.
