Horses and Dreams

Join me in this podcast with Wes Green, a dear friend and neighbor of ours here in South Carolina, as we discuss homesteading, horses and dreams.

About Wes Green

Wes was raised on his grandfather's farm and had a rich history in homesteading, farming and ranching. He participated in FFA in high school and, as a child, the epitome of what a man is was a cowboy.

After walking away from the homesteading lifestyle for nearly 20 years, Wes and his family purchased 30 acres in South Carolina. He and his family are recent homesteaders who purchased their land and are now raising various breeds of chickens, rabbits, and quail.

He and his wife adopted a child, and they had to stay for three years in-country, in order to allow the adoption process to go through. During that time, Wes' wife wrote the book, A Road in the Depths of the Sea.

Today, he and Jeremiah are also raising cattle together on our farm.

I want to share this beautiful life with others and teach them the lessons we've learned along the way. Welcome to Roots and Refuge, friend. I am so glad you're here.
