ROCKY HEDGE FARM IS A PLACE WHERE WE CAN COME
TOGETHER TO APPRECIATE SIMPLE LIVING AT HOME
WITH A LIFE FULL OF CONTENTMENT AND JOY
Rocky Hedge Farm is nestled on a small homestead in the beautiful state of Missouri. Our farm is where we wholeheartedly embrace the simple joys of life.
Our story began in 2103 when we stumbled upon an extraordinary opportunity. A double-wide manufactured home in foreclosure.
Recognizing the potential within its walls, we fearlessly embarked on a remodeling journey that continues today. The process of transforming our home has become a labor of love.
We are dedicated to creating a warm and inviting space for our friends and family.
In 2018, our farm took a new turn as we acquired land. Rather than constructing a new house, we relocated our doublewide to almost 5 acres.
The land that we embarked on the task of clearing was populated with hedge trees and scattered rocks. As a reflection of our journey, our farm became known as Rocky Hedge Farm.
I am a small-town country girl, born and raised in Missouri. I got married when I was just 18 years old and, together with my husband, started our life journey.
In 2002, my husband and I spent several years around Memphis, Tennessee, while he attended seminary. During that time, I realized how much I cherished the slower, simpler ways of life.
In 2006 we moved back home to the great state of Missouri. This is where we settled and raised our four children, Naomi, Josiah, Eli, and Lydia.
My biggest Inspiration
My grandmother has been the biggest inspiration in my life. She and my grandfather lived in a tiny town in Arkansas, where I spent much time as a child.
I fondly remember waking in the woods, going with my grandfather to fetch fresh spring water for their off-grid home, and working in the garden alongside my grandmother.
Grandmother had a special talent for making simple, homemade meals from scratch. Looking back, I now realize that those moments on their farm shaped who I am today.
Despite having very little, my grandmother created a home filled with love and warmth, where everyone felt welcome. Life was simple, and her home was plain, but she made it a place where all felt loved and valued.

My passion for flower gardening also stems from my grandmother. She adored her flowers and worked hard to keep them beautiful even though she had to keep my grandpa’s goats from eating them.
I will admit I was not always the kind of person who cooked from scratch. When I married, my cooking skills were limited to following instructions on the back of a box.
But as time passed, I realized that those convenience foods did nothing for my family’s health. Then, I decided to learn how to cook from scratch, just like my grandmother did.
Today, my passions revolve around creating a cozy home for my family and preparing simple, homemade meals. I find immense joy in growing cut flowers, watching the birds and butterflies, and hearing the gentle hum of the bees.
At Rocky Hedge Farm, I believe in creating a life of contentment and joy through the simple pleasures that make a house a home.
Here, I share my love for creating delicious, healthy homecooked meals using basic ingredients. With a special place in my heart for cast iron cookware, I will guide you in preparing hearty meals that bring comfort and nourishment to your loved ones.
But my journey doesn’t end in the kitchen. I also enjoy creating a haven of blooming flowers amongst unique garden decor. Here, I will share practical gardening tips and inspiration for creating your cut flower garden.
In addition to cooking and gardening, I invite you to join me in our family’s home remodeling journey. From the humble beginnings of a double-wide manufactured home, we have embarked on a transformation to turn our home into a cozy sanctuary.
Rocky Hedge Farm is where we can come together to appreciate the beauty of simple living at home. It is where we embrace a life filled with contentment and joy.
Whether gathering around the table to enjoy home-cooked meals or tending to the gardens, we find inspiration in the simplicity of life’s pleasures.
Here, we celebrate the power of simplicity, cultivating gratitude for the little things that bring us happiness.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. May your journey be filled with blessings and joy, and may you find inspiration in the simple joys of life.
