Thank you for visiting the online home of OUR URBAN FARMSTEAD; Daniel and Courtney Shevchenko’s mini-farm in progress.
We are a family of four seeking to become as self-sufficient as possible in our urban neighborhood. We live on a beautiful one-acre plot of land, in a house we are currently working on renovating and customizing ourselves. We will be sharing updates about the house renovation and the gardening/farming endeavors here, along with little tips and tricks that we have found helpful in our day-to-day lives.
Our life-purpose for our farm can be found in 1st Thessalonians 4:11 – “…Aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your own hands…”
We want our home to be a quiet place of love, industry, learning, peace and order. We are endeavoring to seek the Lord in all we do, and enjoy the little blessings He sends along the way. It is our purpose that all those who visit leave refreshed and feeling like they have experienced the love and joy that is available only from the Lord, and the blessings He freely bestows upon those who seek Him.
We invite you to follow along with us as we dig in deep and make this our perfect little farmstead home!
