The Moody family farms and homesteads on 35 acres in Kentucky. Their journey to homesteading began when John Moody discovered more than a decade ago that his diet was literally killing him. He was hit with duodenal ulcers, seasonal allergies, and other health problems. So the family began to transition to real, local foods and local food distribution.
Eventually, he relocated his family to 35 acres of land to put his learning into practice. He currently serves as a founder and director of Steader (an online learning platform for homesteaders and farmers), and also speaks at many local, regional, and national events on food, farming, and nutrition.
He has two books to help growers and gardeners. His book The Frugal Homesteader which he co wrote with Joel Salatin was just released. His second book is called Winning the War Against Weeds, and is due out mid winter and more books are on the way.
