EPISODE 113 – FAILING FORWARD THROUGH HOMESTEADING WITH SARAH CROSS
On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast, you’ll meet Sarah Cross. Sarah was born and raised in sunny SoCal and never imagined she would be living on a 36 acre, semi-off grid homestead in rural Indiana. Sarah, along with her husband, have made a conscientious shift from a consumer-driven city to an intentional life in the country with a focus on homesteading and self-sufficiency. Canning, gardening, raising chickens, sewing, cooking, training a livestock guardian pup, and beginning her own body care business are just some of Sarah’s intentional-living pursuits. She manages all this while working full time. Next steps include selling eggs, produce, and handcrafted soap at a local farmers’ market and teaching others how to take first steps into homesteading through classes on her property. While she holds a master’s degree in Archaeology, it is her thirst for knowledge and tenacious spirit that make Sarah’s story unique.
