Who We Are
Farm Food Family started Kimberly Crawford’s passion project focused on homesteading topics like gardening, food preservation, home projects, recipes, and sustainable living.
In 2022, Kimberly joined forces with Jason Nguyen’s lifestyle platform KK Media Group, integrating her homesteading content into the broader mission of informing, empowering, and inspiring purposeful living.
Farm Food Family was founded in 2017 by Kimberly Crawford to chronicle her family’s urban homesteading adventures. What started as a passion for growing their own food transformed into a blog and resource hub for homesteaders and anyone interested in a more self-sufficient lifestyle.
In 2022, Kimberly teamed up with serial entrepreneur Jason Nguyen, founder of KK Media Group, to accelerate the reach and impact of Farm Food Family. Bringing the Farm Food Family into the KK Media Group family allowed Kimberly’s homesteading content to become a core vertical in a broader collection of purposeful living information.
The mission of KK Media Group is to inform, empower, and inspire purposeful living across all facets of life.
Farm Food Family lends its expertise to homesteading skills and self-sufficient living, enriching KK’s ability to help readers lead purposeful, intentional lives.

We make every effort to clearly label sponsored content and disclose any potential conflicts of interest. Our writers thoroughly research each topic, consulting multiple credible sources and experts. We fact-check information and promptly correct any errors.
While we aim to cover issues important to our community, we do not promote any specific political or social ideology. Diverse viewpoints are welcome. Our goal is to start thoughtful, productive conversations around food and farming. We also avoid making outright recommendations, instead empowering readers to draw their conclusions based on the information provided.
At the core, Farm Food Family celebrates regional sustainable agriculture and hopes to facilitate meaningful relationships between farmers, eaters, and the land that nourishes us all. This editorial policy supports that mission by holding our writing to high standards of integrity, inclusiveness, and applicability to real life. We’re proud to contribute positively to the story of food in our community.
At Farm Food Family, we recognize the importance of providing accurate, ethical reporting and thoughtful perspectives on issues related to food, farming, and building community. To uphold these standards, we have established an independent Review Board comprising experts in relevant fields. Our Review Board voluntarily assesses our content to ensure it aligns with our editorial policy and journalistic principles.
The Review Board is made up of professionals with diverse backgrounds, from sustainable agriculture researchers and nonprofit leaders to university professors and journalists. They offer guidance to uphold accuracy, address potential biases, and include a balanced range of viewpoints. Their oversight role reinforces our commitment to transparency and building trust with our readers.
We sincerely thank the Review Board members for generously volunteering their time and expertise. Their input challenges us to continually evaluate and improve our coverage of farming, food systems, nutrition, environment, and social issues. If readers have additional perspectives they feel we should consider, we warmly invite open and thoughtful discussion through our contact page. With support from the Review Board, we aim to create a go-to resource for our community.

From the Founder
Ever since moving into our homestead 10 years ago, I’ve found so much joy and purpose in growing food, DIY, and home improvement projects, designing our space, preserving the harvest, and pursuing a self-sufficient lifestyle.
I hope that Farm Food Family can inspire others to embrace this lifestyle in their unique way. I’d love to hear from you on how we can better serve this wonderful community!
