She’s been on a journey in her Airstream to look for the perfect homestead from which they’ll nurture their family.

 

For over 3 years, Heather has worked on her business tirelessly from her and her husband, former navy officer, Austin, and daughter, Rose from their Airstream. They’ve treaded across the grandeur of the American landscape, visiting a multitude of cities across several states in search of a place to call home, where they can begin work on their homestead.

They’ve found a home in the form of a 22-acre piece of land in the mountains of North Carolina.

 

In their travels, they fell in love with a piece of raw land in Morganton, North Carolina. In line with her vision of sustainability, Heather’s dream for her family is to live a sustainable life growing their own food, raising livestock and living off the land. Today, they’re starting work to build their homestead.

 

Her grand vision of owning a 100 to 200 acre homestead is on its way as the family tirelessly works to slowly build it. Today, they’ve already accumulated a number of chickens, ducks and goslings and now manage a small bee farm. Soon enough, Heather Holmes, they can move on to raising some cattle on their humble, yet beautiful piece of land.
