Anna Pearl’s Homestead

Welcome to Anna Pearl’s Homestead!  Our family owns a small cattle/sheep operation in Southwest Wyoming.  We raise Red Angus Cows and Columbia Sheep. We have been living the homesteading/ranching lifestyle for all of our lives.  From lambing and calving to cleaning out the chicken coop, we have done it.  We’ve canned wild meat and fished for wild trout.  Building a fence or fixing a tractor is everyday work for us.  On top of all that, we both hold down full time jobs outside of the homestead.

I am Anna Pearl’s Granddaughter.  She was a beautiful Norwegian woman, who has inspired me every day of my life.  In an effort to keep her alive in my mind and to the world, I have taken on her name as my pen name.  Hence the name of the blog, hence the name of my business,

My husband has lived on the ranch for his whole life.  He is a carpenter by trade.  However, as his career has progressed, he has moved into management of several of our local county facilities.  For the sake of identification in this blog, we shall call him The Rancher.  He doesn’t like to write much.  He doesn’t like to have his picture taken.  He really doesn’t like that I write about him or put his picture the blog.  I do it anyway.

Welcome to our readers from  We hope you will follow us on our new blog.  We will be continuing the Fence Post with a View Series that was so popular on our former blog.  Lots of new features are in store.

We look forward to getting to know you!

Anna Pearl ~
