I would like to make a series of posts about women who have inspired me. All too often we see men as the ultimate homesteaders and pioneer men, with women as just accessories. I’d like to offer a different take—by looking at women who did it alone.

Hanna Hauxwell took care of her farm on her own since she was 35. She was an absolute badass and asked for little help from anyone.

If you are like me, your interest in gardening comes from a desire for self sufficiency, and I can’t think of anyone who displays this more than Hannah Hauxwell. She has several books, including “Seasons of my Life” and was also featured in this documentary: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lC5WeuLHUdU of
