Jason and Lorraine. In 2016 we sold most of our belongings and left the city in southern California to start a small homestead in the mountains of North Carolina. We left the city in search for a more minimal and intentional life. We became passionate about growing our own food and knowing what exactly is in our food after I (Jason) became diagnosed with cancer. Now 8 years in remission we as a family are on a journey to live our passions.
We document our life on UZpost videos to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and not be afraid of change. We started our own online general store where we have available the things we make and use in real life. Thank you for following us on this incredible life changing journey!

Thats a great system for keeping weeds down. I make 4 feet wide beds rather than rows. I havent covered my entire garden with fabric but I do cover all the walk areas between my beds then put down a 4 to 6 inch layer of pine chips. Great video thank you for sharing.

I love yall and watch a lot of your videos. Please educate yourselves and others on "gluten-free"!! Meat is naturally gluten-free! Gluten is found in wheat and causes issues with people with celiac disease and other diseases similar to it!

I might have to get some of that ground fabric. All you have to do is roll it out the wrong way on the ground and then the two of you just flip it over, done. : )

Jason, you are living my dream! I too went to school for drafting and will be coming up on 10 years of office work. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy drawing but working 40+ hours a week behind a computer, designing projects that negatively affect the environment and working for someone else's dream has really wore me out. As you mentioned, I too use my drafting skills to work on my homestead, which is very satisfying. On the homestead I am working for myself, towards my own dreams which is very gratifying. I admire you and your family and what you have done and continue to do with your property and UZpost channel. Thank you for motivating me to take on new challenges in my own life. Possibly one day I too will be able to earn a living doing what makes ME happy. Much love!

Jason & Loraine, Thank you for the video update on the garden and things. Thank you both for all the continued hard work and for keeping us subscribers updated on the homestead. Continuing to pray for you all and looking forward to the time when you are able to announce a new homestead. Continuing prayers and thoughts regarding Jason's health as well. Blessings to you all...

We like using our landscape fabric but it has its cons too. It did great for stuff that grew above ground, but made harvesting root vegetables difficult. Ants also love living under it as well. If you can fit a small pipe through the center of the roll, pin on end then two of you walk with the pipe, it may make unrolling easier if there is enough room to fit it through. Hope y’all like the fabric as much as us. Even with the cons, I still think the pros out do the cons.

I too have compared my yrs of schooling and even owning my own business to building something like a chicken coop.... and my final educated thoughts were of all I did, building the chicken coop ect was more satisfying :) It made me feel good not stressed... bet if you thought about it you could say the same :)

You look so so much better than you did a couple weeks ago. So glad your on the mend. I know yous wanted it to be a all natural garden, but the weed barrier will help you grow far more food which I believe is better not just for yous but also for the environment.

We’ve been getting Butcher Box for over a year. Great meat.... I had gotten to where I couldn’t stand the smell of store bought ground beef cooking, butcher box meat smells like delicious meat. We are in our 60’s , we own an auto repair business.... we just don’t have the time or the energy to grow our own meat. My husband’s family had cows until he passed. All that to say, I will be buying from Butcher Box.. Now the weed fabric... this will be our third year using it. Great stuff, so thankful for it my, I don’t think I could garden if I didn’t use it. It’s wonderful to not have to worry about weeds plus it cuts down on watering. Blessings y’all

You three are one of my two favorite homesteads. I love the tenderness between each other. You have a calm spirit about your homestead. I love the ground cloth idea. I've always used black plastic which is really only good for a season. Praying for a good harvest.

When we gardened in California, due to the climate, we had to almost 100% water our plants for them to survive the summer (since it doesn't rain from May-Sept) . We ran soaker hoses just where we had actual plants instead of watering the beds or spraying or anything and it was interesting how much easier the weeds were to control- they just didn't grow on the parts of the beds or rows that didn't get water with just a layer of paper and mulch. It's totally different on the east coast where you get rainfall that waters the whole area! We both had learned to garden back east so it was a nice bonus, but we will have to figure out what to do once we get into gardening again here on the east coast.

You are not building a chicken coop. You are building skills and a lifestyle. Those skills have been shared with other homesteaders enabling by virtual mentoring, to build thier lifestyles and provide for themselves, thier families, and thier communities. Don't be so fast to sell yourself short.

You amaze me Jason, see how you equipped yourself In your old life to meet your needs today.this is what you were supposed to be doing now. Everything in life comes together to create the AMAZING Person we become in this moment! Therefore here you are now our amazing Jason. Creating these wonderful things of usefulness and beauty! I just love to see you work, I love when you show up at another friends farm or homestead to help them. You did a great job with the pigs, the Brothers. And you will again, just look at you chickens you got so great there, you are now teaching others to feed there families. I am so proud, as is your family! And what a great family you have!! I love seeing you all out working together, too beautiful. GOD bless your family and keep you safe. Ps. Jason, I read this years ago, a Louise Hay book unbelievable woman cured herself of cancer. It is always in the body and is triggered by responses in the body/mind. Cancer is caused by“resentment” of something or some one etc. example: old job led you to complete illness and recovered enough to change your life, I don’t know but I love you and your family, I don’t want to loose you not having ever said something about this remarkable woman, and the help her book or info. could give. Love, Norma (from Florid)

An idea for content for you guys would be to compare your weed fabric to the polyethylene woven one that living traditions uses. We used theirs and love it, I don’t like using plastic-y stuff though. I used 6” staples every foot to combat the wind here.

I’m so happy for you!! I almost gave up gardening about 5 years ago until I thought I’d give the “big box store” el cheapo stuff that disintegrated before the end of summer a chance. By summer end I was on board. Just had to find heavy duty stuff and that was all she wrote. I’ve never looked back! Happy growing! Once you figure out placement, you’re gonna love it! ♥️♥️♥️ @backyard_tomato ♥️♥️♥️

Hello from Wilkes County, NC! The landscape fabric works great! Some how the weeds still find the seams though. So a thick overlap is ideal! Also, if you can cut it with a flame, it melts it so that it doesn't fray. No one ever mentions this, but the fabric seems to shrink in the sun. So it's good that you have it rolled out early.
I'm keeping the Passover!
