We are simply trying to reclaim the birthright of noble independence handed down to us from our forefathers.

who we are.
“Home is not made happy by having a bunch of ‘things’! Home is made happy with love, self-sacrifice, and mutual respect.” – Nick Meissner
Nick and Lisa Meissner – a young family living off-grid on a solar-powered homestead in the mountains of North Idaho.
Nick is a seasoned homesteader with a background in construction, while Lisa is a health educator with a passion for natural living. Their journey began in the late ’90s, when they decided to leave the “rat race” for a simpler lifestyle that is less dependent on modern systems.
Through on-the-job training and the school of hard knocks, they gained valuable knowledge on how to set up and live off the grid, and now they offer their expertise to those seeking a similar path. Join Nick and Lisa on their adventure and discover the rewards of embracing a sustainable lifestyle ‘Into the Country’.
