Stevens Homestead LLC
We are a family of four learning to homestead, after moving to our 7.5 acre lot in North Stanwood, and have chickens, alpacas, sheep and bunnies (and dogs and a cat and some fish!), and we do our best with a veggie garden and lots of fruit trees.
You can follow our story and adventures on our website, Facebook and Instagram.
We’re working on being more self-sustainable with rainwater catchment, composting, and building our community. We have a farm stand on our property where, in cooperation with our neighbors, we sell the extra produce from our garden and yard. We also host a monthly Makers and Growers Market on our property May through September with booths of homemade and homegrown products made by us and our friends and neighbors, and we had so much fun this year that we decided to team up with Cohost in downtown Stanwood and have an indoor Holiday Market on November 23, from 10 am to 3 pm.
Our most popular item is our dryer balls, made from alpaca fiber or sheep wool. Just throw three to six dryer balls in the dryer with your clothes, towels, or linens, as a natural, chemical-free, and nontoxic alternative to dryer sheets. They can:
-reduce dryer time
-reduce static cling
-soften your clothes
You can also add a few drops of essential oils to make your clothes and house smell amazing!
