I’ve followed Danielle at The Rustic Elk for quite a while and was thrilled when I saw she partnered with someone to create a podcast! Any information on living more frugal and homestead is great information for me! Every little bit counts! Both women are very knowledgeable! I also love hearing perspectives of homesteading in Florida! So much that I would’ve never known living in Wisconsin! Thanks ladies!
