About John Moody

“Better to be a warrior in a garden than a gardener in a war.”

John is the author of the Food Clubs and Coops Handbook, the Frugal Homesteader Handbook (August 2018), Winning the War on Weeds (Fall 2018), along with a frequent contributor to publications such as Wise Traditions, New Pioneer, Agfuse and more. He has spoken at dozens of conferences around the nation on a wide range of topics related to food, health, homesteading and farming. In 2006, he founded the Whole Life Buying Club, which has helped dozens of farmers and many hundreds of families connect with real, local food.

His favorite things are church, family, farming, and judo. He and his wife Jessica and five kids homestead and farm on 35 acres in the rolling hills of Kentucky, where they produce Abby’s elderberry syrup (eventually link to a site for that, maybe link for now to FB page), Caleb’s fantastic worm compost (same), pasture raised pork and eggs, rabbits, and trouble.
