Sorin & Shaunna C.

Don't cry over the past, it's gone. Don't stress over the future, it hasn't arrived. Live in the present and make it beautiful.

Originally from Southern California (Romania and Toronto, Canada for Mr. C), we decided to settle down in Northern Alabama on our very own homestead. We get asked, a lot actually, why we would move to Alabama from California; for us the answer is simple – we longed for a simpler life. We had made plans to leave California with no idea where we wanted to go, only knowing that we wanted to move away from the traffic and the busy urban lifestyle that we’d been accustomed to. It wasn’t until close friends of ours moved to Birmingham did we consider Alabama as an option for us. Now, we’re here and we’re trying to live a simply beautiful life.


Mr. C is an engineer by trade, originally graduating with his degree in Aerospace Engineering. He enjoys building things with circuits, reading about electronics in his spare time, and is thrilled to have a tractor to play with as well. Mrs.C trains horses, specifically wild mustangs, is a hobby artist and an avid cook. We’re both animal advocates, with a serious love of Dachshunds and Tibetan Mastiffs, share a love computer games (Rimworld, World of Warcraft, Age of Empires, etc…), and enjoy home renovation projects a little more than we should. Although we may not fit the traditional mold when it comes to farming we are here, doing things our own way,  and, most importantly, we’re happy.

We’re so very fortunate to have started our journey and are excited to share it with you.
