Here's what others are saying:
I prayed and cried the night before you came. I thought we'd made a mistake. That I couldn't handle it all. That after only two months in our home we had made the biggest mistake of our lives. I was wondering if it was even worth it for you to come, and spoiler alert, it was!
We feel organized and like we know the purpose of our land. We know our goals and have priorities given to each task. We look at our land and home very differently now. No, it's not exactly what I want, or even close at the moment. But it will be! And I am starting to see it now. We can't thank you enough for opening our eyes to see all that God has given us every time we step out our door.
"Having Drew out for a homestead audit helped me better understand where to prioritize my efforts in getting my homestead started. I’m confident that I avoided mistakes that would have been made if I would not have had him come out."
Having Drew and Lacey come out to the farm and show us theexact steps we need to take to get our farm operational was exactly the type of help we needed.
They gave us clarity and specific goals to work on.
Having/starting a farm is overwhelming and you don't really know where to begin.
Having them come out and show us how to build from the ground up saved us a ton of time and money.
"We had Lacey and Drew out to Abiding Place for a land audit. We are so excited to get started on our plan that will lead us to utilize water management. They are a wealth of information and inspiration that will eventually help us reach our ultimate goal of self sufficiency."
Lacey and Drew are amazing people to learn from and collaborate with.
I don't have a large homestead, but they gave me great ideas to implement in my space.
I only wish I had them in person.
The video call was easy and comfortable and they were patient and listened to my concerns. They have a "use what you have mentality" which I love because I am the same way. Change and growth is sometimes slow and not linear, but I have more tools now and a great resource to come back to as they gave me the video call and notes to refer back to. The Grims are a wealth of knowledge in holistic and homesteading and I am glad to learn from it.
Before Drew came out to our property we were having trouble materializing our ideas into a cohesive plan of attack. Afterward, we feel armed with a clear vision and order we need to tackle our goals in. He really helped us organize our thoughts into something tangible on paper but more than that helped open our minds to envisioning what our future homestead will look like.
Moved to a new property in Gold Hill, NC less than a month ago..
Still being new to the homestead life, we wanted to call on experts to help us navigate setup, ideas, plans etc...
What we didn’t expect was getting the most amazing humans to come hang with us for a few hours & spit out all the goodness. If only I could suck all their brain knowledge out!
If you are new or established I HIGHLY recommend reaching out to The Schoolhouse Life with Drew Grim & Lacey Grim !!!
It was worth every penny & then some. Can’t say enough great things about them & their willingness to serve this community. Thank you a million times over!
