Hey and welcome to Chasing Crusoe!

I’m Rebecca. 🙂 I am married to an amazing man, Brent, and we have 4 beautiful children ranging from 2-11 years. We love the outdoors and life on our rural New Zealand farm. We dream of one day being off-grid and self-sufficient and here you can follow our family of 6 as we adventure through life and work towards this. 

I read a lot. I wanted a platform to motivate, inspire, entertain or just to keep you company; as what I have read over the years has done for me. I’m by no means a homesteading expert, but I’m authentic and write from the heart.

Chasing Crusoe is all about Chasing Simple Back-To-Basic Living.

I love nothing more than foraging in the garden & creating meals using what we have.

My blog is only beginning…but I have lots to share and lots to learn both In The Garden and In The Kitchen, so I hope you enjoy journeying with us!

The photos on my blog, Facebook & Instagram are my own personal photos taken in our garden & kitchen and are not to be uploaded, used or reproduced without permission. Thank you.
