Teal House Farm

In 2015, we purchased a 1897, “fixer-upper” farm house on a 10 acre farm in Missouri. We were looking for a simple life for our family of (then) 5. Since then, we have renovated the bathroom, kitchen, started raising chickens, ducks, and dairy goats…plus added two more beautiful daughters to our family. Things are certainly never boring around here!

About Us
The Best of Teal House Farm

Come see what we have to offer!


Come learn with us about frugal and natural living, breaking the cycle of debt, sustainable farming, and watch (very patiently) as we (very slowly) renovate our farm house to restore its former beauty. We also highlight large family living and homeschool hacks from time to time as our family continues to grow and thrive and learn together.


Need some Teal House swag? Check out our store! We have everything from mugs to hats to crazy canning lady tees. We also have a digital store with our favorite homeschool downloads. Homeschool Store is now open. More content coming soon!


Follow our journey toward a debt-free, self-sustainable life for our family. Making do with less, appreciating what we have more, and selling the excess. We believe that real life is an adventure in learning and promise to show our successes, failures, and everything in between.

We're glad you stopped by. We always enjoy hearing from readers and guests. Leave a comment or drop us an email. We'd love to hear from you!

The Essential Gift of Togetherness

Oh the things people say about large families.  I don’t even consider our family that big.  I mean, not saying that 6 kids isn’t a lot of little people, but I wouldn’t really consider it neck-craning worthy.  But it’s apparently unusual enough that we can’t go, well anywhere, without comments. Some of them are probably […]
