MIKE AND LACIE DICKSON
Known on YouTube as the Fit Farmer, Mike is a former professional natural (drug free) bodybuilder, personal fitness trainer and nutritional coach turned farmer/homesteader. When he and his wife Lacie discovered the sad truth about our modern food system, they were inspired to begin growing food right where they lived in the city.
Mike explained “I had never grown anything in my life, and when I grew something from seed to harvest it felt so empowering, I just wanted to grow more and more”. Yet as their aspirations for growing more continued they were faced with city ordinances that hindered their urban homesteading goals. They decided to leave the city, sell their house, furniture and all their possessions, buy a yurt and move to the country to start a homestead. Today their homestead produces food for their family and many farm customers. Follow Mike and his family’s adventures on YouTube, where they strive to inspire and educate others about living a healthy more connected lifestyle.
