Hello! Welcome to Orchard Slope

This space is about our homestead, our adventures and our lives On our little homestead, Orchard Slope, we strive to live deep within the rhythm of each season, enjoying all that each has to offer. We grow as much of our food as we can and we continually to try to simplify our lives and be present in each day.

My name is Abby and you will see Johnny, Anna and Evee here too. We are the Ytzen-Handels and we live in a cozy town on the marsh. Our little home is nestled into the the hillside on our sloped acre. Our dreams are big and our hearts are full. We are pouring ourselves into this place and are truly in awe of the land, it's resilient diversity and beauty.
