I would like to thank the Fitz family farm for allowing us to experience their off grid homestead. Something I wish I had had the experienced or opportunity to have before. Therefore, there is never a too late of an experience or learning time. Very simple to understand & see with hands on, which is hard to forge. Yes, watching videos can help, but to experience hands on will bring you to another level of confidence. Thank you for your time. As some say, “give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” ~Ben and Eveyln O.

We have learned much from Goose and Gillian regarding living a simpler life and healing our family. Their passion for off-grid living is captivating. We love how they teach in a way that is easy to relate to… They are simply real people teaching how we can live a real life. Thank you for all you do! ~Keagan and Sarah K.

When my husband and I were talking about going off grid they gave us the best advice and support. They gave us some ideas we never even thought of. They have been off grid for a long time and have had a lot of different situations come up. They know how to problem solve and getting it fixed or getting it going. They have such a passion to teach and show others how to make it work with anything or how to get it started. You can see how much it means to them to show what they have done, what works, how to fix it, what to try, and how far they have got. Bless them for everything they do.
~ David and Desirae P.

They say “those who can’t, teach.” Well maybe. But not in this case. Yesterday we spent a couple hours with this couple and left educated, motivated and encouraged. They are great teachers. There was plenty of time to chat and many rabbit trails to follow yet Gillian quite comfortably stayed on task and we made it through her whole list of topics to cover. I’m sure I may have found all the same info online, but who has time to go through the petabytes of info to find it? In addition, to weed through all the nonsense that is out there.
I can’t wait to attend more classes by them. ~Doug Drinkwine
