The author

Angela Fanning is a self-taught first generation farmer who built Axe & Root Homestead, a six-acre farm in central New Jersey, USA. Originally a graphic and website designer by trade, she owned and operated her own design firm for over a decade. After the birth of her first child, she realized she wanted to be outdoors, aligning her life with the seasons and with nature. She now grows and preserves her own homegrown produce for her young family, and runs a farm bustling with Clydesdales, geese and ducks for eggs, an apiary with ten beehives, sheep, and a small orchard. She shares this love for eco-conscious, self-sufficient living with others through her Instagram account @axeandroothomestead (61k followers), her online homesteading classes, and is a regular contributor to publications such as Countryside Magazine, and Backyard Beekeping, and Backyard Poultry Magazines.

AnneliesDraws is an artist based in the Netherlands. She charms her 280,000 followers on Instagram with heartwarming and inspirational messages illustrated with her adorable drawings.
