The Channel

The Fit Farmer

This is in reference to Mike’s previous career as a bodybuilder.

Mike Dickson focuses on yurt living on his homestead with his wife and children but still works regularly on his health and physique.

Real Name(s)

Mike Dickson is 38 years old while his wife Lacie is 35.

The Yurt

Unlike many others who have cabins or country homes, they have chosen a yurt which is beautiful.

They have lived in their yurt for the past 8 years, and they have no plans of leaving anytime soon.


Over that time, their farm has been upgraded with:

➜ Insulation and wood panels on the yurt

➜ A new chicken tractor and house

➜ A new Champion log splitter

They are anti-consumers and only buy what the farm truly needs. I respect that a ton.


They’re based in North Carolina where numerous other homesteading YouTube creators are also based.


Mike went from bodybuilding champion to farming champion, taking his wife and children out of the city and into a life on the farm.

Net Worth

Guys on Youtube are typically wealthier than we imagine.

As of 2024, The Fit Farmer (Mike Dickson) has a net worth of $980,000 USD.

This is based on the value of the farm, their cars, their camper van and online business.

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


It’s also surprising how much he makes with his channel.

Mike Dickson of The Fit Farmer makes $8,700 per month on YouTube.

He does this through:

➜ Affiliate links to farming and gardening gear

➜ YouTube ads that play on his channel

➜ Affiliate links to products on Amazon

➜ Numerous PayPal donations

It’s clear that Mike is treating his channel like a real business but delivers a ton of value along the way.


I haven’t seen them mix in with any other channels as yet.

Big Moments

Their journey hasn’t been easy.

They have experienced:

➜ Several flat tires

➜ Damages to their yurt

➜ Something attacked their chickens

That said, they continue pushing forward despite the heartbreaks.

Future Plans

They have no plans of moving anywhere and the children will inherit the farm.

They may upgrade form the yurt to a tiny home in the near future.


I don’t have any juicy secrets to share with you. 🙂 But will update this article if I do.


What can we learn from Mike’s homesteading journey?

➜ Use the resources you have available

➜ Find a seriously supportive wife

➜ Farming can be quite profitable

And true freedom is found out there in the woods.

My Thoughts

Watching Mike’s channel on YouTube has been a huge inspiration here at Cabinpreneur. From his stories and lessons to the evolution of the farm, I’ve come away more empowered for the future, and I hope you have too.

And despite quitting bodybuilding some years ago, he’s still lean and muscular as ever before.
