My name is Abbie and I’m a farmer’s daughter. I’m also a wife, mom, and teacher. I grew up on my family’s 300+ year old farm in Connecticut, and that has shaped my life.
I’m a breastfeeding, co-sleeping, babywearing, gDiapering, attached working mom. I believe in following my instincts when it comes to parenting. Ed and I have been married since 2004 and we welcomed Josh on March 12, 2010.
I value hard work and education, and I attended college on a full academic scholarship. I’ve been teaching biology, environmental science, botany and forensic science at the high school level for the last eight years. I focus on place-based and experiential learning.
In addition to school and spending time with our families, I love to spend time at home. I cook from scratch with local foods, spend lots of time outside in the garden, read, craft, and write. Ed’s a builder and we built our house together with our families on my great-grandmother’s land. It was a long process, but we’re so happy to be home.
We have a lot of adventures trying to live simply and sustainably. Follow along as we live from scratch.
