Old Meets New
"One of the ironies of the Internet Age is that millions of people want to get closer to Mother Nature and a simpler way of life," said Schultz. "I think the modern homestead is a place where a family can enjoy all of the benefits of high-speed web access (including instantaneous information, streaming entertainment, online commerce and more) and also enjoy organic vegetables harvested from their own garden or greenhouse. It's an interesting dichotomy of old and new—but in many ways it's simply taking the best from different eras and weaving it into a new tapestry of 21st century living."
