Hello there, I’m Tina

it’s so nice to meet you!

Just like you, I have often wished that I could grow more food and become more self-sufficient so that I can have the peace of mind that my family is provided for no matter what lies ahead. Feeling the satisfaction of not relying on big box stores to feed my family is hugely gratifying. You can experience this, too.

In the Garden

My story is meant to inspire you to create a life worth celebrating.

Even though you may not be where you want to be on your homesteading journey yet, I know that YOU can take small steps today to become more self-sufficient.

Gluten Free Kitchen

Whether you grow your own food, buy it from the farmer’s market, or shop online, YOU can learn the skills that will impact your health and well-being wherever you call home.

While not everyone can live in the country, everyone can experience a little bit of country wherever they call home. 

In recent times, the world has seen increased economic uncertainty, disruptions in the food supply chain, widespread unemployment, as well as a call to live more sustainably.

Our family has always lived on a modest income and many times we had to get creative with out resources to make ends meet. 

We have not always lived in the country, however, many of the skills we’ve picked up over the years were acquired while living in various cities across the globe.

You can bring a little bit of modern homestead life to wherever you call home and enjoy the freedom that comes from living a simple and more sustainable life.

JUST LIKE YOU, I desire to live a life with the freedom to grow our own food, to stock our pantry, and to build a life that allows us to be less reliant on big box stores for our everyday needs.

Over the span of the past 23 years, our family has experienced unemployment, a variety of food allergies, the diagnosis of celiac disease, living in apartments and tiny homes with a postage stamp yard, in addition to relocating our family from Germany to Canada where we had no family living close by to lend a hand. 

The harsh reality of these experiences forced us to become resourceful and frugal. We taught ourselves many different skills as a result and have an ardent desire to share what we’ve learned with others. 

We’ve grown food on balconies, in pots, and in square-foot gardens. We’ve been enjoying homemade jams and preserves since the beginning of our marriage because modern homesteading skills are valuable skills to have no matter where you call home. 

Our Family’s mission is to encourage and inspire you on your journey to live a more self sufficient life. 

In the summer of 2020, at the height of the pandemic, when sourcing food for our large family became a full-time job, we began our quest to finally leave city life behind.

We were fed up with the limits on basic food items, the scarcity, and volatility of the food supply chain. We grew as much food as we could in our suburban backyard, but our desire to grow and raise more of our own food increased.  

Modern Homesteading is so much more than owning and working land.

Philosophy Background
Philosophy Background

We had always assumed that living in the country was beyond our financial means, but that never stopped us from baking our own bread, sewing some of our own clothing, or preserving food for the winter. You can grow food in small spaces or massive gardens, but there is nothing stopping you from buying and canning fruit and vegetables that you bought at the farmer’s market or from a roadside stand.

Stocking a pantry is something that everyone should and can do. Some would argue that with modern refrigeration, well-stocked grocery stores in addition to the convenience of take-out and delivery services, food preservation is a thing of the past. However, with a well-stocked pantry, a family can bridge unemployment, illness, or other unforeseen circumstances with the peace of mind that your family is provided for

Learning to grow your own food, cook from scratch, as well as make homemade gift items is extremely satisfying and fulfilling. We have discovered the many benefits of becoming more self-sufficient and living a simple, joyful life.

Professional Bio

Tina von Hatten is a gluten-free homesteader and co-owner of Under Three Acres with her husband Sascha. She teaches modern homesteading skills to families with gluten intolerance so that they can have more control over what goes into the food they eat and can enjoy celebrating again without feeling sick or left out.

After Tina and her oldest son were diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2008, she spent the first few months learning how to cook and bake all over again. Although, they were living on an extremely tight budget, she explored creative ways to make food that was wholesome and fun for her kids to eat. She started growing food in anything that would hold soil and adopted a make do and mend mentality and learned how to preserve more, sew clothing, and make everyday household items.

As her gut healed and their financial situation improved, Tina and her husband Sascha were able to purchase their first home and were able to grow even more food. Tina took courses and read whatever she could get her hands on and continued to hone her skills so that she could one day share what she’d learned with others.

Through her YouTube channel and websites, she empowers families to embrace the gluten-free lifestyle with the peace of mind that they too can grow and prepare food that is not only safe, but tasty and healthy and live without feeling deprived.

As her motto suggests, Tina believes that everyone with gluten intolerance deserves to live a life of gluten freedom, because YOU deserve to have your cake and eat it too.
