Inspiring – a word that describes the lifestyle that the Dervaes family have developed and effectively maintained. It proves that with enough land, we can live for free and independently.
Many of us dream to have a retirement farm – a home away from home. But the Dervaes have showed how we can reinvent our city homes and turn them into self-sustaining urban micro farms. Their Urban Homestead is just shy of 400 square meters, and yet it produces 6000 lbs. of edible produce every year – enough to feed their whole family, pets included! In fact, they even get to preserve some of their produce for future consumption, and sell some to the locals who are pining for organically grown harvest.
We are simply inspired by this movement. Do you think it is doable with your own home? Just imagine enjoying meals with backyard-cultivated ingredients. We want our homestead too!
