Brianna Storch and her husband are busy on their Northern California Homestead.
With their own careers, a 4-year-old son, a cat, two dogs, nine chickens and 2.5 acres, there’s no lack of a checklist.

Brianna’s homestead sits on 2.5 acres.

But with all those things comes a bounty of experience, and that’s why we’re excited to have Brianna Storch as our homesteading affiliate here on the #SafetyTeam so she can teach us all to live a little more “crunchy.”
“Being crunchy means living as eco-friendly as possibly, which I provide examples of how to do so while on a budget,” says Brianna, whose blog Breezy Living has become a comical account of her attempts to “stay classy in an otherwise dusty environment.”
She started her blog after her son was born as an outlet for her thoughts and as a “busy mom trying to avoid the harmful chemicals and pesticides in commercially grown food.”
Now, Brianna has chickens for eggs, lots of space for gardens, fruit trees, and a growing family that she supports using it all.
But is going crunchy for everyone?
“Recycling, shopping at farmers markets, buying local eggs, having a raised garden bed, or even an herb garden by a window are just a few things that any person can do to achieve a greener way of living,” says Brianna. “It’s all about what you can make out of your own surroundings.”
We love that attitude! We’re really excited to share content with Brianna and to see all the great tips she can give us on living green and homesteading in our own backyards.
“I have always felt that what we take from the Earth, we should try to give back,” says Brianna. “You don’t have to know a whole lot about farming or gardening, or have a lot of money either; all that is needed is a little bit of time, patience, and a realistic goal.”
