Mickey Affrunti's Food

Somewhere in Missouri

Mickey Affrunti

Mickey Affrunti is a Missouri inhabitant that makes ends meet by catching her own food, raising her own chickens, obtaining her own water, composting her scraps and feces, etc.

In short, she is truly an extreme off-gridder.

Mickey Affrunti's Snake Appeal


My name is Mickey Affrunti.

This is my first little bit about off-grid living.

Deer-Corn Season!

I will write more later on how I obtain the corn.

I've learned not to be afraid to try new things.

Mickey Affrunti's not sureI have learned to eat anything, and like it.

Some of the steaks off the rump.

Basically anything the dogs catch is usually edible.

I save the hides that are used as clothing.

Other skins are used for wall coverings because the thin sheet of plywood that separates the inside of this shed from the outside can get pretty brutal at times.

See all the bubbles?

Vinegar is also easily made by fermenting apples in water and sugar which eventually turns into apple cider vinegar. Fermenting potato peels in water and shaking the jar daily, not forgetting to open the lid for just a few seconds daily to let it breathe, will eventually turn into Yeast that you can bake with.
