Forever Wild

By Erin Baldwin

I’m a crunchy mama, mini-homesteader, hobby diary goat farmer, backyard beekeeper, blogger, lover of books, sushi and all things West Virginia.

I reside in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia on three hilly acres of land we call Cooper Run that my family and I are working to transform into a mini-homestead. Our cast of characters consists of my husband, our rambunctious 3-year-old, our little one on the way and myself. We live next door to my father, mother and grandmother and my sister, Amy, and her family – that’s right, four generations around the dinner table each night. 

Join the adventure as we explore preparedness, hobby goat farming, backyard beekeeping, raising chickens, gardening, homesteading, natural parenting, and homegrown learning. For more about the chaos I call everyday life, visit
