Our Fair Field

By Renée-Lucie Benoit

Renée L. Benoit and her better half, Martin, realized a long standing dream when they bought their own acreage outside of Madera, California. Now they embark on the interesting task of developing it into a self sufficient homestead where they grow most of their own food just like Renée's grandmother did in Illinois at the beginning of the 20th century. Join Renée in homestead high jinks, trials and tribulations as she digs deep into her memories of how her grandmother made her homestead a success.
