Rebeka & Stefon

Welcome to Our Appalachian Homestead!

Hey, ya'll! Come on in and sit a spell. In other words, welcome to Our Appalachian Homestead! 

Our names are Stefon and Rebeka White and we began this blog after purchasing land nestled in the east Tennessee mountains, otherwise known as the Blue Ridge or Appalachian Mountains! 

It is our goal to turn our raw piece of the Volunteer state to an off-grid, self-sufficient homestead and reduce our carbon footprint in the process. 

Stefon has stepped away from the blog to pursue other opportunities, but he is still active in the building and learning process. The voice behind blog posts is primarily me, Rebeka White. I grew up in the Appalachians before traveling the U.S. with Stefon for work. We decided to put down roots here and build our homestead! It has been a wonderful journey and I am so excited to connect with everyone here. 

If you're wanting to connect with other likeminded off-gridders and homesteaders(even if you're just dreaming right now) we have a Facebook group! Homestead Community is an all-inclusive group for anyone wanting to homestead, live off-grid or already doing so!
