Who We Are
Welcome! So glad that you’ve stopped by. We’re happy that you have enabled us to share our journey with you. Transparency about the kind of data we use is important to us. When it comes to privacy, we think of it as one of the utmost importance to uphold a high standard.
When I say we/us, I really (most of time) mean Kristi Wheeler (that’s me!) I operate Homestead Wishing (https://homesteadWishing.com) mostly by myself. We can also mean me and my family! Since every dime we make goes into feeding three almost teenagers and some gets put back into running this website as efficiently as possible.
To contact us it’s simple. Email your questions, comments, or other to HomesteadWishing(at)gmail(dot).com.
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
