My name is Ashlea and this is My-Not-So-Pioneer-Life!

This site is a glimpse into my world with a pie cooling on the window sill. I find joy in blending classic skills and modern conveniences.

My family and I live on 6 acres of land in rural Ontario where we do everything from growing and foraging our own food, cooking and baking from scratch, raising chickens (and children), to soap making,  and so much more!

There’s always a new project or recipe to try. So pull up a chair, I’ll put the kettle on.
