I am a 30 year old father of three. I recently “retired” from a part-time job to focus entirely on being a radical homemaker. I homeschool, garden, and try to heal our small corner of the earth. This blog is primarily focused on our journey towards FIRE (Financial Independence and Early Retirement), inspired by the likes of Mr. Money Mustache and Jacob at Early Retirement Extreme. My wife, who I refer to as the Alchemist, still works but we hope to have her free by the time we’re both 40.
We haven’t decided 100% what our vision for FIRE will be, but currently we’re taking a very hard look at decamping to a rural homestead and living much closer to the land than we can on a small city lot with very restricted livestock possibilities. It’s possible we may even take over a larger-scale farm sooner than 40, using income from that to bridge the gap between lost years of income. The farming/homesteading life very much appeals to me, both for myself and as a parent.
