I am Steven Cooper. I’m a 25 year old guy from Payson, Utah who has a dream to be totally self-sufficient in the next few years. I grew up on a farm and learned how to raise crops and animals for food and pleasure. I am a graduate from Utah Valley University in Construction Management and focused my studies on sustainable building practices. I have a beautiful wife, 2 year old daughter and 8 month old son.

My vision is to become totally self-sufficient, off the grid living on a small farm in the next few years. This is my passion and what I lay awake thinking about at night. I want this site to be a great resource for how to live more sustainable. My focus is making really good, easy to follow, “how-to” content for all the topics discussed. I am always looking for good youtube videos and websites that teach me how to do all these things but I am not always satisfied.
Becoming totally self-sufficent is not something that can happen over night. It is a step by step process of implementing new practices into our lives to eventually become self-sufficient. I don’t expect everyone reading my content wants to be totally self-sufficient like me. However, I hope they can implement a few things from my website to have a more sustainable lifestyle and achieve their own goals.
The reason I have built this website is because it is my passion. I am not a hippy looking to save the environment, or live an alternative lifestyle where I never go out to eat. But, I do love sustainability and I want to incorporate it’s practices into my life as much as possible. I believe having the freedom to eat Home Grown Food, live in an Energy Efficient Home, and Emergency Prepared Home will help me achieve a better lifestyle for my family and I plan on having fun while doing it.
