It happened over 125 years ago when my pioneering great-great-grandmother, Lillie May Busby, drove her covered wagon across Oklahoma through Texas with her 17 children. Although they were poor, my family knew how to make do with very little. They produced enough food to feed the whole family along their journey through unchartered territory.

Today we carry with us that same pioneering spirit as we push through new boundaries on our modern voyage to rediscover the purpose of self-reliance, independence and sustainability.

Join our family in the garden!
