The Channel

Roots And Refuge Farm

Real Name(s)

Jess Sowards is the man person behind the YouTube channel and blog, with her husband Miah Sowards sometimes joining in on the videos.

They are a Christian family, although I’m not sure if they’re Mormon.

The Farm

Their farm has helped them live out their self-sustainability dreams.


To make life easier, they have built or bought a:

➜ Ranger 1000 ATV

➜ A new greenhouse

➜ A new driveway

➜ A new kitchen

It’s been so good to see the farm evolve over the years.


They’re based in Leesville, South Carolina.


Jess and her husband simply wanted to raise children in a clean and healthy environment.

That journey started years ago, and what you see on YouTube is the evolution of “planting a seed 20 years ago”.

Net Worth

YouTube couples are often wealthier than we imagine.

As of 2024, Roots And Refuge Farm has a net worth of $2,400,000 USD. This estimate is based on the value of the farm, their equipment and online business.

But despite their wealth, they’re never going to sell the farm anyway. They are literally living the dream and still live a simple life, despite a few dollars in the bank.


It’s also surprising how much their channel makes.

Roots And Refuge Farm makes $12,700 per month on YouTube.

To do this, they simply:

➜ Place ads on their videos

➜ Sell their own merchandise

➜ Sales of the books (First Time Gardener and First Time Homesteader)

➜ Affiliate links on their channel

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


I haven’t really seen Jess collab with other channels.

Big Moments

During their journey, they haven’t really experienced bad moments or intruders. They have simply focused on growing their own fresh food at home.

Future Plans

They’ll continue to grow their own food well into the future.

Jess explains why that’s so important in this video:


I haven’t find any juicy gossip or criticism at this time.
