Homestead/Self-Sufficient Series - Alaska: The Last Frontier

I previously posted about watching some homestead/self-sufficient television shows in my sparse downtime and talked about a show called Mountain Men.

This time, I would like to discuss a show called, Alaska: The Last Frontier. For those who do not know, Alaska: The Last Frontier follows the adventures of the Kilcher family, Atz Lee Kilcher, Eivin Kilcher, Otto Kilcher, Atz Kilcher, Eve Kilcher, Jane Kilcher, Charlotte Kilcher at their homestead in Homer, Alaska.

The following is taken from Alaska: The Last Frontier's Facebook...

Alaska: The Last Frontier introduces viewers to the Kilcher family and their isolated community outside Homer, Alaska. The Kilchers have cultivated and lived on their homestead for generations. These men and women of the wild live off the land, spending the limited months of summer and fall gardening, hunting and fishing for food, gathering supplies from the land and preparing their animals' safety in preparation for surviving the harsh Alaskan winters. 

What can I say about the Kiltcher family? They are the real deal. Honest. Hardworking and well,... real. The new season is almost upon us, but in reflecting on the previous seasons, we see the struggles and triumphs that define a true frontier family.

For those interested in watching the show, this season just premiered on October 6th at 8PM CST
