  • Descrição


    After some travel as a work away volunteer, it’s time to try our luck as a host!
    We bought some overgrown land in eastern Tennessee and are working on making it a little paradise.

    We just got power to it and have running water. It’s primitive but getting there.

    We have goats, sheep, miniature Belted Galloways, chickens, ducks and getting a cat soon.
    Most of our animals are boarded at a friends now, till we can build our fences.

    We live close to several lakes, the Appalachian trail and other hiking trails.
    The Great Smokey Mountains are two ours away.

    Tyler is a musician and I am in the process of having my nursing licence transferred from the Netherlands.

    We love to go to (Bluegrass) festivals, play music around a campfire, grill out and meet people.

    Growing our own food is the goal for the next few years. We have grown most of our meat for the upcoming time.
