We want you to have a life worth living
Welcome to Bluff Bottom! Pull up a seat and stay awhile.
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
Hayden + Taylor
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.
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 share wholesome family recipes.
Most of all, we hope that as we share reflections on our own faith journeys that you’ll be inspired to deepen your relationship with God (or, heck, start a relationship with Him).
