The Channel

That 1870’s Homestead

Real Name(s)

Rachel Kirby (age 57)

Todd Kirby (age 58)

They only got married in 2009.

The Cabin

They live in a beautiful homestead and you can see that they’ve poured a ton of effort into it.

They also have a small cabin that they visit sometimes.


Along the way, they have upgraded their home with:

➜ A large homestead-preserving pantry

➜ A Flow Hive honey station (Todd loved it!)

➜ New pigs and chickens joined the garden

➜ They also bought a JACKERY solar generator

They aren’t into purchasing one-time-use products, so expensive purchases need to be weight up against their cost and benefit, much like most homesteaders.


They’re based near Newport, MI, although I don’t have their exact address.


They love their homesteading life and wouldn’t change it for the world.

Net Worth

YouTube couples are often wealthier than we imagine.

As of 2024, That 1870’s Homestead has a net worth of $2,600,000 USD. This is based on the value of their acreage, vehicles, online business and stock portfolio.

So yes, they’re millionaires but have each worked hard for the last few decades. They deserve every dollar to their name.


It’s also surprising how much their channel makes.

That 1870’s Homestead probably makes $5,700 per month on YouTube.

This makes YouTube Rachel’s full-time job. So how does she make this remarkable cash flow online?

Well, she simply does this through:

➜ YouTube ads that play on their videos

➜ Sales of their 1870’s Homestead merch

➜ Affiliate links to homesteading gear

➜ Occasional brand sponsorships

So it’s clear that she’s treating their YouTube channel like a business. It doesn’t feel overly commercial either.


I’ve seen them featured on several other channels.

Big Moments

They haven’t drawn much gossip, controversy or backlash for their actions. Rachel, in particular, is just so down to earth.

Future Plans

At this time, they’d love to become more self-sufficient by building additional gardens.


They don’t have any secrets from what I could find.


What can we learn from their #cabinpreneur journey?

➜ You don’t need a huge homestead

➜ Begin empowering yourself online

➜ True freedom is found through homesteading

And the best time to start was yesterday, while the second-best time to start is today.

My Thoughts

Through watching their videos on YouTube, I’ve learned so much about growing my own food, preserving and becoming more self-sufficient.

Rachel and Todd truly are a gift to the homesteading community, and I look forward to watching their videos for years into the future.
