Doug and Stacy -- Off Grid
We are Doug and Stacy, we live OFF GRID in the Midwest in a log cabin we built ourselves from the forest. We have no solar or wind power and live the pioneer life in the 21st century. We post videos daily on YouTube of our adventure and share a lot of tips on how to live off grid and be more self-sufficient.
One fun fact
We met in October and married in December the same year. It was love at first sight!

My Favorite Lehman's Products are
We love all the Lehman's products because we live totally off grid and rely on the age old tools and appliances that our forefathers used to get the job done here on the homestead.... Our MOST USED appliance by far is the Pioneer Princess wood cook stove.
- Princess Cookstove
- Oil Lamps
- Cast Iron Cookware
What is your favorite animal?Doug - sheep
I like raising the Katahdin Hair sheep because they are easy and tolerate heat and humidity -- in the Midwest that is a must. Sheep provide the homestead with a level of self-reliance as we sell them for income and utilize the meat to sustain ourselves.Stacy - Guinea Fowl
We call our guinea fowl The FARMERS' WATCHDOG because they alert us when anyone comes around the property. They are also just so fun to watch. They are a unique bird that does a great job of getting ticks and small bugs.
What is your connection to Lehmans
When we first sold everything we had - even our 2,800 square-foot house - and decided to live a more simple life, we found the Lehman's web page and ordered the catalog right away. We have plenty of Lehman's goods in our simple log cabin today helping us achieve our goal of the pioneer life. We were also fortunate that through social media we were able to connect with the staff and tell our story and have forged a very personal relationship with this family-run company, which we value very much. I mean, we are the perfect poster kids for the store!
