  1. The Hollar Homestead

    Man, that is our story and you still made me tear up. Thank you so much for capturing and sharing it!! We had a wonderful time with you all, and really appreciate your encouragement!

    1. 5N Farm

      I hope you travel into Oklahoma. We have a place in SEOK.. Very rural. Land is inexpensive. Very low property taxes. Low cost of living.

    2. Mrs Farm Alarm

      @White House on the Hill I cried when they left. I am still crying 😢

    3. White House on the Hill

      +The Hollar Homestead - you guys are doing an amazing thing. We gotta spread the word! But seriously, thanks for being our friends. We miss you already.

  2. Jastra J

    That is one scary kid

  3. Terri Rushford

    I loved the look on "Baby Holler" when he was introduced. I can so relate! I was in my 40's the last time I saw my mom before she passed and was introduced as her "baby". Both of your families are people I would enjoy meeting. There is a bit of envy here.

  9. Katie Bug

    @ The Hollar Homestead ...WOW you guys are stronger than most..made me tear up a little but I definitely get it. To realize you are not stuck and to get out and try something new and wonderful and sometimes not so glorious adventure of a lifetime. Think of all the different life skills your kids get to learn...with you not some boxed up classroom..

    1. White House on the Hill

      +Mstres Vamperilla - one in a lifetime trip they're on!

  10. KitKat Chocolate

    1. White House on the Hill

      +Evoch gapple - super kind of you. It's certainly a dream! Thanks for watching!

  12. Farmhouse Teas

    Love, love love ❤️ it's so sad there are so many families that would live and work together if they could. So much sacrafice to do what they did! Hubby had to go back to work a month ago while we keep on working the tea. It didn't grow as fast as the savings shrunk. I've been trying to talk hubby into moving to Missouri 😂 mostly because he has been wanting to go back home to Wyoming. Land is so much more affordable in Missouri! And better homeschooling laws ❤️

    1. White House on the Hill

      +St. Fiacre's Farm - I hope it works out for you guys, you are a great success story!

  13. Watercolor Addict

  20. Debbie Ibrahim

    Honestly that is how god meant for us to live, off the land and to barter with one a other....rather than be consumed with money and earning it... Living off tbe land gives our lives meaning and people must have been so much more happy in blesses folks....and i wish you all the best!!

    1. White House on the Hill

    WAIT! The twins are oldest? But seriously, their story is so inspiring. Rather than give up because of their situation, they changed the situation.

I'd never heard of hollar homestead before this and I appreciate you giving them the time and helping share their story. It's a powerful one.

  59. Stringfield Ridge Farm

    Have been keeping up with their journey. They are precious! So glad they are looking for a perfect place before they settle. MO is a great state - we are in western Kentucky so lots of similarities as SE MO - Good Luck Hollar Homestead.

    1. White House on the Hill

      +Stringfield Ridge Farm - sounded like they were headed that way soon!

  60. Kohelet Yael

    heart felt story.. it reminds me of when G-d told Abraham to leave his land, his people and all that he knew.. and so that he would go where a holy land would be promised to him. May the hand of G-d bless the Hollar homestead with a land that will be holy to them, that will be fruitful and prosperous, with good people and peace.

    1. The Hollar Homestead

      Thank you Kohelet Yael!

    2. White House on the Hill

      +Kohelet Yael - agreed! They are definitely being watched over!

  61. Romawoods Woodworking

    What a great story!!

    1. White House on the Hill

      +Nick Johnson - I agree, Nick!

  62. Brandy Gallegos

    I think for most people just picking up and starting over isn’t easy, leaving family behind and some aren’t financial able. Like you said, in some regions just the cost of 1 acre is ridiculously over priced. I’m in Florida, and for .18th of and acre is 30k/50k . I wish you luck in journey to your forever farm.

    1. Brandy Gallegos

      The Hollar Homestead good luck on your journey. @white house on the hill, I found your channel through living traditions homestead . You both are right, hard, and not for everyone. I made the move but stayed within Florida. No financial freedom or homestead, but I do garden (BIG garden 😂).

    2. The Hollar Homestead

      It's definitely not easy, or the right choice, for everyone. But we knew in our hearts it was right for us!

    3. White House on the Hill

      +Brandy Gallegos - oh, it's definitely not easy for anyone... they made quite a life-changing decision to go for it.

  63. Homestead Wannabee

    Another couple choosing the important things in life - family. Blessings ~

    1. White House on the Hill

      +Homestead Wannabee - so true!

  64. Mrs Farm Alarm

    What a great video friends! Such great memories and friends are being made.

    1. White House on the Hill

      +Mrs Farm Alarm - thank you, Ashley!

  65. Mrs Farm Alarm

    Eventhough I have heard their story, it still gets my eyes a little leaky everytime I hear it.

    1. The Hollar Homestead

      My eyes are leaking too!

    2. White House on the Hill

      +Mrs Farm Alarm - good! It's a powerful one!

  66. Mrs Farm Alarm

    What a cool place that is!

    1. White House on the Hill

      +Joshua Wilson - thank you so much, Joshua! Probably for the Hollar's, but we'll steal the blessing 😀

  68. Farm Alarm

    Good times with good people. I think they will choose Missouri ☺. You did an amazing job showcasing their story. Well done *Chicken* *Man,* well done. 👍

    1. White House on the Hill

      +Farm Alarm - thank you, sir. I hope they do!

  69. The Cynic

    The east side of the state is much better. Anywhere down hyw44 Or around Jefferson city.

    1. White House on the Hill

      +The Cynic - they were over on the east side first... now they're headed south I think

  70. John Harris

    My family did the same but a smaller focus. We knew we wanted to be in the Appalachian mountains and be in the south. We wanted not to be in a hot area that required air conditioned living. We settled on 30 acres near Boone NC. We are at 3500 ft elevation. The hottest it has gotten all summer is 86 degrees. Nights are cool. . The neighbors are great and the homeschooling laws are great. Best side benefit is there are no mosquitoes. We love it!

    1. White House on the Hill

      +John Harris - pretty sweet spot you found there!
