Our New Name!

Our New Name!
We have an announcement. :) Years & years ago we talked about possibly moving to (or at least purchasing land in) Missouri some day.

Out of the blue, after unexpected but strong promptings, our youngest daughter & her family moved to Missouri in June 2020... Exactly 1 year later in June 2021, our oldest daughter's husband was transferred 4 1/2 hours north of them in Iowa... and that's when we knew it wasn't a coincidence.

Most of our (Jennifer & Kirk's) 30 years of marriage, we've lived between Utah & Idaho. In 2019 we moved back to Utah & worked hard to stay there, because while we weren't a fan of some of the political things happening, we LOVE the mountains, and we love our friends & family, & all the resources, & just so many things.

But in the early spring of this year (2022) we couldn't deny any longer, that God had been not pushing, & had not been pulling ~ but He had been inviting us to come to Missouri for quite some time... We began realizing that so many of the opportunities and goals we had for staying Utah were not working out, because He needed us elsewhere.

And so, after much back & forth, we finally made the decision to go. It's been one of, if not the most difficult, rewarding, challenging, refining, miracle filled experiences of our lives. We've been recording the before, during, & after of this journey, and we hope to write a book at some point.

But for now, we're excited... and a little nervous... but excited to move forward with our re-designed & re-fined family business with the new name of Missouri Homestead Co., while still holding on to the philosophy of "Meraki" from our previous name, "Meraki By Nature™."  

Meraki is a Greek word meaning to put all of your heart, soul, love, & passion into what you do. And here at Missouri Homestead Co. (formerly Meraki By Nature™), that is what we strive to do every day of our lives.

Meraki in everything Faith, Family, Freedom, Food, & Farma.

Meraki will always be a part of us, and we hope it is for you too. We want to invite you to join us in separating from "the system"... And in returning to the way things were, when live was more simple & wholesome... And in becoming modern pioneers... And in this journey toward a healthier, more peaceful, old-fashioned way of life.
~ Jennifer
