This is us and our crazy bunch. I’m Gretchen, the mom. Knut is my husband and then there’s our 5 kids. We live on the farm where my husband works, and live in his childhood home. As of now, we have 20 chickens, 1 dog, 4 sheep, 13 turkeys and 8 cats. Although some of those numbers change pretty often. I like to write, knit, sew, cook, garden, and other farm-wifey things. I actually grew up in the city so all these “regular things” on the farm like making jams are not so normal to me, but I’m getting there.
Most of all, we strive not to meet some stereotype of what a farm family does, but to live according to the life God has called us. We walk by faith. We work hard, but we depend on grace. In our house, we sometimes need grace by the truckload.
David has alopecia, as you will see in current pictures. You can read about our journey with this here.
All of these beautiful family pictures on this “About Us” page (besides the one of our dog) were taken by my talented sister-in-law, Kristin. You can find more of her work here.
