Meet Kara

Hi, my name is Kara and I am a chef, moment capturer, homemade enthusiast, culinary activist, and preserver of old ways. From the Big Apple to South Central PA, my fiancé Sean and I moved our lives in pursuit of a more rural lifestyle; to follow our dreams of a self sustainable homestead surrounded by beautiful land we can take care of so it can take care of us in return. 

This is a time when everything is easily accessible and available right at our finger tips. However, that does not mean that all the things set out on the shelves for us to consume are meant to nourish and benefit us. So I strive to get us as humans back to our roots. When we had to search out or grow our own food, preserve it to feed our families year round, and if we wanted something we had to use our minds and good ol' two hands to create it ourselves. Take back the control of what we are consuming and the freedom to live the way nature intended. 

I've made it my duty, to learn everything there is to know about food and utilize modern platforms to speak out, expose the flaws in the system and educate everyone I can about where to find + how to cook, pure-unaltered 'real foods'. Thoughtfully and sustainably grown foods, free from artificial additives or chemicals that are not serving our bodies needs.

We put a lot of thought and time into finding out exactly where our food comes from and how it is produced. The food in our house is always cooked from scratch from the all natural real ingredients that nature intended for us to eat. Most importantly its all easily accessible and nothing short of scrumptious.

This is our life, this is The Concrete Forager
