About Us

West Dublin Market Summer 2012

Karl and Monika (me) welcome you to our blog of our exciting project of HillTop Farm  in Pleasantville on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.  

We have recently moved to the area and we are working on transforming this Huey Lake family homestead into our dream of simple living and living simple.  
I'm Monika; blogger, homesteader, beach comber, carpenter apprentice.  My partner Karl and I, are starting our simple living homestead and look forward to sharing the experience, local culture and hearing and learning from others.  We have been together for over 10 years and have lived many adventures across Canada and in Costa Rica and Nicaragua and are very excited to open this new chapter in Nova Scotia. 

He's Karl; jack of all trades, homesteader, diver and excellent carpenter.  He is the craftsman behind the construction of our home and doing it he is definitely in his happy place as his joy comes out in the beautiful finished product.

Thanks for stopping by and we look forward to sharing our tales with you.
