In 2013, Lisa and René started to dream of living closer to their food, closer to nature and closer together to build a deeply rooted family but living in hustle and bustle of Southern Ontario left them feeling tired, defeated and stuck in the grind. After years of struggling to live a life that felt like it was not meant for their family, they began making life changes to live minimally, naturally and spend more time together.

In 2018 The Petite Plantation family renovated and moved into a motorhome while working to explore with their homeschooled children and look for their forever homestead property and in the spring of 2019, they purchased a forested property in New Brunswick, Canada and began building their sustainable homestead.

Using new, salvaged and repurposed materials, Lisa and René built their solar powered tiny farmhouse themselves and are currently working to build a self reliant homestead and farm stand for the local community.
