Kirsten Lie-Nielsen is a freelance writer focused on climate change, sustainability, modern agriculture, and rural lifestyles. She is the author of two books on homesteading and animal husbandry, and is a regular contributor to Modern Farmer, Civil Eats, Ambrook Research, Edible Maine, and others.


Based in Maine, she and her partner restored a 200-year-old farm where they continue to live and work, raising Nigerian Dwarf goats and Southdown Babydoll sheep. She is enthusiastic about all things outdoors, no matter the weather, and continues to offer education on homesteading through her social media as well as her writing work.

Kirsten is currently working on a collection of researched-based essays which tell the stories of modern homesteaders through a cultural lens as she dispels the myths of farming and rural living.
