By Julie Fletcher
Born and raised in Faith, N.C., Julie was raised by her great-grandparents which resulted in a deep love for everything old-fashioned. She worked on a farm in Salisbury, N.C. For several years before moving to Buffalo, N.Y. After marrying her best friend. Twelve years and five children later, Julie and her family left the city to begin a new life in rural Allegany County, N.Y. They plan to build a homestead slowly and homeschool their children.
