About

Four generations of Kilchers proudly live off the land that Yule and Ruth Kilcher homesteaded outside Homer, Alaska over 80 years ago after fleeing Switzerland in search of a free and simple life. The Kilcher family reside on their homestead consisting of over 640 acres of Alaskan wilderness, living off of the resources that the land provides; no running water, they must hunt, garden, gather, raise and protect livestock, cleverly recycle old-as-new and rely on their innovation in order to survive Alaska’s uncontrollable elements. Always pushed to their limits, the Kilchers both work together as a family, and face conflict between old and young generations.
