TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – He doesn’t own a combine or even a more than an acre, but Kevin Levesque has crops.
“This is our little backyard farm, I gotta keep enough room for the kids and the puppy dogs, “ Levesque said.
From his house right here in Terre Haute, Levesque grows enough produce to cut right into the family’s grocery bills. He calls himself an “Urban Homesteader.”
The term goes back to a simpler time, when families grew all their own food. Levesque family just wanted a break from the rising cost.
“I decided I wanted to grow my own food because I was tired of paying the high prices at the grocery store,” added Levesque.
