Matt Stephens

Homestead Hustle

Matt Stephens was born into a part-time homesteading family. Growing up on a 65 acre central Texas hobby farm, Stephens learned from his parents and his rural Depression surviving grandparents. He developed a love for all things that lived and came from a farmstead lifestyle. Life took him across the state of Texas, only to deliver him back to the family farm.
Stephens expanded this familiar piece of land past a hobby and into a full time endeavor to include more than 300 acres, owned and leased. Now with a family of his own he looks to instill the same upbringing in his children and teach others from his experiences.
