COMBAT BOOTS TO PLANTING ROOTS
Hello friends. We’re Jen and David – two combat veterans who have embraced the modern homesteading lifestyle.
Our approach to homesteading may be unconventional compared to some; we don’t raise animals for meat or dairy, nor do we live off-grid.
Instead, we've created something special here: a place filled with passion and commitment to connecting with nature and caring for our animals.
So explore our world - and find something that speaks to your heart and brings out the inner homesteader in you!

At Baghdad to Barnyard, we understand the healing power of homesteading and are here to help you explore it.
From growing food, caring for animals, and making something beautiful out of something less-than-ideal, there's so much enjoyment to be found in this lifestyle.
As someone who has encountered the difficulties of trauma and addiction recovery firsthand, I'm here to share my story and help guide you on your journey.
We will show you how to cultivate a sustainable balance in body, mind, and spirit that can bring much-needed healing. So take the first steps and join us on your homesteading journey today!
Hello friends, I'm Jen and I am a woman of many hats: wife, veteran, animal rescuer, homesteader, blogger, mental health advocate and aspiring DIY-er.
