At Hostile Valley Farm we are revitalizing a 200 year old homestead, using permaculture agriculture practices and heritage breed animals. 
We breed Nigerian Dwarf Goats & Babydoll Sheep and offer educational classes, books and resources on homesteading and animal care.


Kirsten Lie-Nielsen, half of the team at Hostile Valley Farm, is a homesteading author and educator.  In addition to two books on homesteading, she hosts consults, classes, and offers special educational resources for those interested in the lifestyle.  Visit the Club and Education tabs to learn more.
