Hey y’all, and thanks for stopping by our website. Our names are Doug and Stacy and we live the pioneer lifestyle in the 21st century in an 1800s style log home we built ourselves. We have been living off grid and homesteading with no public utilities for the past decade where we preserve the old ways and get closer to our food. Our passion is to blend “old ways” with a modern twist so people like you can be more self-reliant, live an intentional life, and be a healthier you.
Here at Rain Country we are into small scale homesteading and being as self sufficient as possible. We use our many skills to create, fix, build, and grow as much as we are able and love to share our knowledge.
Do you want to be a Modern Pioneer in the Kitchen and be part of the Traditional Foods Movement? If so, You’ve found a home! I teach Traditional Cooking Skills including How to Cook from Scratch so you can make “Nutrient Dense” Foods including Bone Broths, Cultured Dairy, Ferments, Sourdough Starter, Sourdough Bread, and More!
We’re Carolyn and Josh Thomas! We live on 40 acres in Idaho with our 11 children where we grow, preserve, and prepare most of our own food right in our own backyard.
