Hello! My name is Charley and I write Cooke’s Frontier.

Charley Cooke, writer/owner | www.cookesfrontier.com


This blog is about our transformation from ordinary, everyday, average people to self-sufficient, homesteading, DIY masters. We aren’t there yet and have a long way to go, but we’re on our way. One baby step at a time! You’ll also find the recipes that I use and love here-and not just food. Lotion, home remedies, balms, soap making, home dairy and food, too. It’s a real-time diary of my daily life.



About me~ I’ve been married to my husband, bless his heart, for 10 years. We have 4 daughters and 2 of them are identical twins! We live in a small town in Oregon and dream of someday owning our “perfect” homestead.. We are simple, kind of old fashioned and some people say a little bit crazy. We have a whole herd of different animals, a big garden and we homeschool.

This blog is about our life and all that it brings us. It’s an honest blog, it won’t always be pretty or happy, but it will be real. I’m honest and I honestly love doing this.



Thank you for being here, and thank you for making this blog what it is today. I couldn’t be happier to have you all along for the ride!
