Meghan Pettipas

Meghan was born in the town of Deep River, Ontario. While she has lived in Ottawa for the last twenty-five years, she still considers Deep River her hometown.

Four years ago, she and her husband decided to embark on a plan to simplify life, and set up a homestead to reconnect with nature.

Over the next two years, Meghan left her corporate job as communications manager for a sustainable energy producer, sold their house, bought six acres of woods outside Mississippi Mills, started construction of their post-and-beam strawbale home, and had their second son. In 2011, they moved into their home and Meghan has been busy raising their two amazing sons and lovely laying hens, and growing fresh vegetables.
