northern simple living

michigan based | frugality forward | simple living | small-scale Homesteading

We're Erika and Justin.

We live a consumer debt free lifestyle in rural Michigan with two young kids, a rowdy dog, backyard chickens, a vegetable garden and a couple of hives buzzing with honeybees. We love all things outdoors and are doing our best to teach our kids respect for nature, the values of family, frugality, hard work and persistence with the goal that they will grow up understanding where real food comes from, and that the simple things in life are all one really needs to be truly happy.
We hope you'll join us along the way as we work toward
Northern Simple Living.
