“Peter from TreeEater Farm & Nursery in BC sat down to share the challenges and lessons learned from his experience earning a living off the land for 13 years, along with his partner Magdalene.

Peter moved to a piece of land in British Columbia’s Gulf Islands as an idealistic 22-year old who wanted to save the world and reduce his environmental footprint by growing his own food, building his own shelter, and producing his own fibres for clothes. Magdalene joined him a few years later.

To make this homesteading project financially viable, the couple has had to experiment with different revenue streams, including community supported agriculture (CSA) vegetable box programs, hand forged tools, meat animals, dairy cows, and selling fruit and nut trees, as well as plenty of off-farm work as well.”
