After 16 happy years here on the Rural Revolution homestead, we are ready to move on.

Why? Because with just the two of us, the house is simply too big. This is a home for a growing family, not a couple whose children have grown and moved out.

This is the homestead featured prominently in such publications as Backwoods Home Magazine, Self-Reliance Magazine, Countryside, and other leading rural-living magazines.

If you're looking for a self-sufficient homestead in beautiful North Idaho, consider making our home yours.

(Please note, we're still in the process of renovation. Keep this in mind if you're an early viewer.)

Here are some of the amenities the property offers:

20 acres, fenced and cross-fenced (two five-acre pastures on one side of house, eight acres in partial woods on the other side of the house, two acres around house/barns)
