Living the Real Simple Life



The Dervaes Family have created the original modern urban homestead that has yielded an entirely new, revolutionary alternative lifestyle. What do you think? Are the Dervaes Family odd or are they geniuses? Here is the family website to learn more. Also, here is their youtube page for more videos.

First of all thanks for posting the links--- I have just started on this path. I have gardened for years but this year I added something new--- I purchased a flock of dual purpose chicks--- they are about ten weeks old now and in a couple of months we should begin to get eggs. I am fortunate I live on 2 1/2 acres in a semi rural area. I am nowhere near as efficient as the family shown but it sure is inspiring--- For years now I have yearned for a simpler, more "real" life and through prayer and discernment the Holy Spirit has lead us in this direction---even though I have a long way to go to match the family in the videos I can say that just with the little steps we've taken so far it is a wonderful feeling to know in certain ways, with God's help we can fend for ourselves--- and help out others... Far from crazy I think this family is smart.
