About Alaska: The Last Frontier

Four generations of Kilchers proudly live off the land that Yule and Ruth Kilcher homesteaded outside Homer, Alaska over 80 years ago after fleeing Switzerland in search of a free and simple life. The Kilcher family reside on their homestead consisting of over 640 acres of Alaskan wilderness, living off of the resources that the land provides; no running water, they must hunt, garden, gather, raise and protect livestock, cleverly recycle old-as-new and rely on their innovation in order to survive Alaska’s uncontrollable elements. Always pushed to their limits, the Kilchers both work together as a family, and face conflict between old and young generations.
