Welcome to Simply Rooted Farmhouse! Please join our community as we share how we are cultivating an eco-friendly simple lifestyle from our handmade home.
I’m so glad that you’re here. My name is Megan, I am the creator of Simply Rooted Farmhouse. Here, we are cultivating an eco-conscious, simple lifestyle from our handmade home.
In our home, you will find my husband, Jason, our two sons, a Great Dane Mix named Murphy and some chickens. We live in New England, and purchased our farmhouse and 10+ acre property a few years ago. Previously we owned a small, ranch-style home in the suburbs. We have always kept a great garden and grown our own veggies, regardless of the size of our yard.
We love to make as many things ourselves as we can. Jason can build and fix just about anything! He also does all of our home renovations with his own two hands. There is always work to be done on the property, and there is no task that he can’t handle. As far as home improvement projects go, I’m really good at holding the flashlight and handing him tools!
I enjoy making things by hand, but in a different way. My creations are generally in the kitchen, or household items such as cleaners/detergents/etc.
Eco-Conscious, Simple Living
We certainly aren’t perfect. But, we try to do as much as we can to reduce waste in a mindful, eco-friendly way while living simply. You can check out our simple, eco-friendly tips here.
With our eco-conscious actions each day, we are teaching our children the importance of reducing waste and reusing what we can. We love to purchase items second-hand, and donate everything once we can no longer use it. We also try to avoid single-use items, so stay tuned for our tips and tricks!
I’ve always wanted to live just remotely enough to have room to enjoy nature, and also be able to access necessities in a reasonable amount of time! Our property is exactly that, we live about 30 minutes from the nearest … anything.
I am a vegetarian who primarily follows a plant-based diet while living in a house full of carnivores. Meal prepping can get complicated at times, so check out my favorite plant-based foods for delicious, simple, recipes that can be made in a pinch.
I love creating, writing and taking pictures as you will find here on this site! Also, I have a deep love of houseplants and dream of having a large greenhouse someday.
