Otto Kilcher, the cattleman of the family, sees life a little differently that most people. While some may think he's crazy, he'd say it's just his willingness to accept whatever life brings him. Otto's sense of humor and ingenuity inspire his family and neighbors alike.
For the Kilchers, necessity truly is the mother of invention and recycling takes a on whole new level. Their subsistence lifestyle requires that they not only reuse and recycle, but also reinvent, from bone yard scavenges and make-do parts to roadkill suppers.
