Who I am
My name is Tracy Pluim and I’m a Christ follower, husband, father, teacher, sugar maker and carpenter. We live in Shoreview, MN, and, for now, we have a small homestead with 7 maple trees and a growing garden and apiary.
Why I do this
Initially, I began this journey into sugars and carpentry to see if I could. What would happen if I tapped a maple tree? How about 5? Would I be able to take care of bees? Would they survive the winter? Which tools do which tasks? How difficult is it to make a cupboard? Although I have had to learn the hard way many times, I am more excited now than ever before to explore the great unknown.
