The Channel

Homesteading Family

Real Name(s)

Josh Thomas (age 47)

Carolyn Thomas (age 45)

They have six children together who appear to be homeschooled and Mormon.

Carolyn appears to be pregnant again.

The Farm

They live on a homestead and make a small profit with their farm. Their home is very traditional.


Their homestead has been upgraded with:

➜ A DIY Hoop House

➜ 200+ BALL mason jars

➜ A beautiful wood stove

➜ Their own freeze dryer

They only buy things that they absolutely need.


They’re based in Bonners Ferry, Idaho.


It’s not clear if Josh and Carolyn grew up homesteading, or had traditional jobs in the city and then decided to make the switch.

Net Worth

YouTube couples are often wealthier than we imagine.

As of 2024, Homesteading Family has a net worth of $2,200,000. This is based on the value of their farm, equipment, cars and online business.

That certainly helps them live the idyllic life in the woods.


It’s also surprising how much their channel makes.

Homesteading Family makes $13,200 per month on YouTube, providing a full-time online income.

This is made through:

➜ YouTube ads that play on their homesteading videos

➜ Subscriptions to Homestead Kitchen membership

➜ Affiliate links to homesteading gear they use

➜ Mediavine ads that are placed on their blog

So it’s clear that they’re treating their YouTube channel like a business.

It’s something that Carolyn really focuses on as Josh runs CWI Properties which is a homestead-building company. If you want to build a beautiful country home, then definitely check out his website!


They have worked with Justin Rhodes and Joel Salatin, and have learned a ton!

Big Moments

During their time on YouTube, they haven’t experienced too many bad moments. They also haven’t drawn critics or gossip, unlike some other homesteaders.

Future Plans

They plan to continue their journey on YouTube, even after giving so much to the homesteading community.


None that I could find. They’re very open about their life, family and purpose in life.
