A recent visitor who came for a half-day consultation wrote; “A visit to your farm leaves one feeling restored and invigorated.”

We so much enjoyed our time with you and Cam.  Thank you for all the special touches—the colorful table settings, the books, the delicious food and engaging conversation.   We had such a lovely time and took away many new insights.  Bless you both!

Our visit to Sunflower Farm was two years in the making.  I remember the day my husband came home with an article about Cam and Michelle’s off-grid farm and said “We have to go visit these people and see if this is something we can do.”  After two years of waiting, our expectations were heavily influenced by hopes of realizing our off-grid dream and sheer excitement of finally getting to see what living off-grid was really like.

We learned a lot while visiting Sunflower Farm, but there are a few things that come to mind first:

1) Living off-grid is enjoyable, imminently doable, and life fulfilling.

2) Off-grid does not mean With-out.  The quality of life we enjoy on the grid does not inherently have to be compromised if moving to an off-grid lifestyle.

3) There is no substitute for years of experience.  We read dozens of books, articles and publications about alternative energy and being off-grid.  Nothing compares to sitting at the dinner table or walking around the farm with Cam and Michelle and seeing it firsthand.

Cam and Michelle are unboundedly talented teachers and most gracious hosts.  After our visit, we are even more excited to realize our own off-grid dream.  We are whole-heartedly grateful to Cam and Michelle for creating the off-grid retreat at Sunflower Farm.
