Welcome to our Bluff Bottom Homestead website! We are SO happy you’re here, and we hope you stay awhile.
I’m Taylor, and along with my husband, Hayden, we operate a small (but growing!) farm and homestead. Our little slice of heaven is nestled up against a giant limestone bluff sandwiched between two big rivers: the Illinois and the mighty Mississippi.
Bluff Bottom Homestead was born in response to an overwhelming observation we saw in the time of the pandemic (and even before). We live in a rat race world fraught with the “gimme more” attitude of consumer culture. More and more people don’t know where their food comes from. More and more people are becoming disconnected from the joy of working with their own hands, for their own family.
It’s time to get back to our roots. It’s time to revitalize old skills for a new, fulfilling life. And we’re here to help you get there.
We hope Bluff Bottom Homestead will be a place you can come to learn how to start a small farm, homestead, agricultural/homestead business, or simply a productive backyard garden. We hope this will be a place you can come to learn tips about flower and veggie gardening, pasture maintenance, rotational grazing, homestead projects, and wholesome family recipes to boot.
Here you’ll find real-life experiences and real talk about living simply with intention and purpose.
Feel free to click around on the site to learn more about how we can help YOU get back to your roots.
