At Hostile Valley Farm we are revitalizing a 200 year old homestead, using sustainable and permaculture agriculture practices and heritage breed animals and sharing our experiences to help educate would-be homesteaders and farmers.  


Kirsten Lie-Nielsen, half of the team at Hostile Valley Farm, is also a homesteading author and educator.  Visit the Books + Events tab for links to her books, check out the Class Schedule below for upcoming online classes, and browse the topics under the Education tab for more homesteading educational resources.
