Greetings and salutations! We are a husband and wife who are homesteaders and academics. We were both raised as farm kids, and we wish to pass on this tradition to our own children. Off the farm, the two of us combined have over 20 years of experience tutoring and teaching for the Catholic homeschooling community, and we wish to share our services now with even more students through our online, one-room school house. Please see “The Rolling Acres School” page for more information. Below you may see a short biography about each of us.
