Back to the Land Farm

Welcome Friends


A number of years ago, we moved from the city to a small 32 acre farm in rural Jefferson County, Kentucky. We wanted to get back to basic living -or- Back to the Land ! We thought about a number of farm names, but settled on the name Back to the Land and registered it with the State of Kentucky. This web site is dedicated to rural living with many links related to this life. Fortunately, traffic in the Louisville area is not too bad and you can commute to and from the downtown area in 30 minutes. Our life reminds us of the old TV series "Green Acres". It can be hard work at times, but we love it. We hope some of the information on this site will whet your appetite for moving Back to the Land.

If you know of interesting sites we can add to the page, please email us at

Directions to our farm from Louisville can be found by Clicking Here

The following three links contain various pictures of our farm. These pictures are about 1.5 meg each, so you may want to skip these if you are dialed in at 56kbs. ENJOY !!
