At 24, living in Nashville, Jenna Woginrich was nurturing her dream of learning to homestead. She didn't own land and she didn't have much practical experience, but she did have a strong desire to be more self sufficient. Jenna was soon able to achieve her dream. Today, at 27, she's srttled on a farm, where she cares for two Huskies, Jazz and Annie, chickens, rabbits, a goat, a turkey, a duck, honeybees, geese, and backyard garden, which provides much of her food. Jenna is a web designer who works in a office by day. She has taught herself to bake, spin, sew, play the fiddle and mountain dulcimer.
