I must admit, every time I type in the address for our website, my heart smiles a very BIG smile!

I can’t believe that only a few short years ago, I posted on our Lazy B Farm Facebook page an invitation to all women interested in homesteading. And in January 2011, over 20 women gathered at my farmhouse for our first Gathering.

There was an instant connection. Electricity filled the room as we began to share our dreams and longings for a sustainable life. We met again the next month, and the next...

New faces appeared, and our knowledge expanded, our community grew, and our friendships deepened.

The loneliness I felt prior to meeting these women vanished! I now spent my time with like-minded women and had fulfilled my desire for community with other women.


If what I have shared with you here tugs at your heart, then come along and join us. We are all on a journey. A homesteading journey made far more pleasant when supportive friends walk alongside us. Come on, grab a hand and let’s go!

Please wander through our website and let us know if we can help answer any questions.

Need to know if there’s a Chapter near you? This page should answer that question.

Want to start a Chapter in your own community? Please visit this page.

A modern homesteader has an attitude and philosophy of self-reliance and is not confined, nor defined, by a piece of land or experience.

If that sounds like you, then you’ve found the right community! We welcome you with a big basket of knowledge, community, and friendship,

Cyndi Ball, Founder and Executive Director
