About The Show

Deep in the Alaskan wilderness live the Kilcher family and their isolated community. The Kilchers, led by patriarch Atz Kilcher, have cultivated and lived on their homestead outside Homer, Alaska, for four generations.

These men and women of the wild truly live off the land. They spend the limited months of summer and autumn gardening, hunting and fishing for food, gathering supplies from the land and preparing their animals’ safety in preparation for surviving the harsh Alaskan winters.

Most live completely off the grid, with no running water and no electricity – and are proud of it. But freedom comes at a price for this family of 21st century pioneers; and, whilst life is never boring, survival is never easy.
