Welcome to Farmhouse Harvest!
My husband, Darin, and I are building a farmhouse in rural Idaho on ten acres with our kids! We’ve lived all over the western United States, including: California, Arizona, Utah, and Oregon, but our favorite is Idaho!
For the last 10 years we’ve loved living in Idaho, and dreamed of a large acreage. In 2020 we sold our farmhouse on a small acreage and purchased ten acres in alfalfa to build the homestead!

Despite the fact that I grew up in Southern California, I am a small-town country girl at heart! I’ve never lived in a big city, and after traveling to one, I’m always ready to go home and relax in the quiet peaceful country.
I’m the second oldest of 8 kids, including 4 sisters, 3 brothers, and one Angel mother!
I am a health nut with a sweet tooth! Unfortunately, my husband doesn’t share my enthusiasm for all things healthy, but we find common ground in our sweet tooth. Hence, I love making healthier desserts that my husband and family can enjoy with me.
I love whole foods, natural remedies, and nutritional healing! After high school, I worked in a health food store for three years as I attended college and massage school. I love the power of nature and herbs that the Lord has prepared to heal us!
I have a passion for living debt-free, and always felt it was my destiny to pay my mortgage off by the time I was in my thirties. The desire for expensive or unnecessary THINGS just isn’t a part of my makeup. Call me odd, but I’m totally happy wearing the same couple of dresses every Sunday, and the same pair of shoes till they wear out!
I have a passion for high-quality necessities that are reliable year after year over cheap luxuries. Therefore, I prefer Toyotas because they run without problems with little maintenance for 300,000+ miles. I love hardwood floors, because they can be refinished and last a lifetime. Glass over plastic kitchen and food containers, and a quality pair of tenny shoes over the latest fashion. I also love thrift store shopping and feel like it’s a treasure hunt.
