A Missouri homestead gives the Raneys their biggest challenge ever. Aside from a lack of food and power, the list of threats includes hungry bears, disease-carrying ticks and 60 massive oaks looming over a flimsy cabin in tornado alley.
In Arizona, a family needs the Raneys' help to bring food to their desert home as well as protect the homestead from coyotes and a cow-gone-wild. Then, the Raneys help a malnourished couple in the Ozarks build a garden and mold-free cabin.
Owners of an unsanitary homestead in North Carolina call the Raneys to help clean up, build a septic system and address the honey bee hives that attract bears. Then, the Raneys battle flash floods in Hawaii to keep a homestead from going under.
