Three women who went off-grid to grow cannabis and live the simple life with their animals, shared a glimpse of their unusual attitude.
Lexie, 28, Amy, 31 and Doris, 39, moved to the California countryside to start a farm and become self-sufficient, and share their rustic exploits through their steamy Instagram account ‘Girls Off Grid’.
A typical post will then show waving guns, cut down trees or feed chickens in skimpy bikinis.
The founder, Doris, revealed that she decided to start the account as a farm spoof on Girls Gone Wild, and the women keep 65 sheep, 60 goats, 40 chickens, fifteen ducks, eight guinea pigs, three alpacas, two turkeys, two horses, two dogs, two cats, a pig.
Because they are no longer allowed to sell their cannabis commercially, they earn money by selling farm fertilizers, walnuts and growing their own food – even doing their own plumbing because the nearest store is an hour away.

Speaking of the company, Doris revealed: “I made Girls Gone Off-Grid as a sort of parody of Girls Gone Wild,” explains Doris, the company’s founder.
“I thought we could lure followers of our sexuality, but then they could show that we are really doing some farms.
Until the end of last year the girls grow industrial quantities of cannabis.
“That earned a lot of money,” Doris said sadly. But unfortunately my province no longer allows commercial cultivation. “

They also grow walnuts, a lucrative harvest because Doris discovered how her selling prices increased tenfold by going directly to consumers and taking care of dozens of animals.
“We currently have 65 sheep, 60 goats, 40 chickens,” said Doris proudly.
‘Fifteen ducks, eight guinea pigs, three alpacas, two turkeys, two horses, two dogs, two cats, a pig.
“And a partridge in a pear tree!”.
The women say that they try to lure followers with their more “sexual content” and then teach them more about farming life

Lexi the founds says she is trying to post less sexual content, but some photos see the women enjoying a break from farming life in bikinis by the sea
But life also has its more difficult sides, and an hour’s drive from the nearest town forced the girls to learn practical skills all by themselves.
“Living outside the schedule, with my own plumbing and septic, taught me very quickly that I had to learn all those things,” she said.
“So over time I learned about various generators, how to lay PVC pipes or make breaks, do oil changes, work with propane devices and set up my own solar energy.”
As these videos and photos show, the girls are certainly not afraid of getting down and dirty.
“My chainsaw skills are probably what I’m most proud of,” Doris admitted.
Elsewhere the women participate in the practice of wearing dresses because they ensure that they can protect their farm against wild animals

“Not many guys I know feel at ease with picking up and performing a saw, it’s definitely one of the more dangerous jobs here.”
Doris was far from a born and raised country girl, but grew up in a rich servant household. Her father was the largest beer distribution company in San Francisco.
“At that time I always wore designer clothes and I literally always wore heels,” she remembered.
“I hated not being clean and I didn’t like outdoor activities that don’t shop or hang out at a pool or beach.”
A random turn of fate saw her father sell the company that led Doris to set up a company for organic fertilizers and from there show interest in food production.
Working in agriculture, meeting farmers and seeing all the junk they spray on our food made me realize that I wanted to grow and grow up everything I could, “she said.

‘The great thing about starting my agricultural life in industry was the knowledge I gained. To sell fertilizer to farmers, I had to get to know the science behind it.
“I attended courses, read books and learned soil science, plant pathology, microbiology, etc. Such skills are crucial for running a successful farm.”
But in addition to science, running a large farm and managing so many animals sometimes offers heartbreaking situations for the girls to deal with.
“Most of our problems at the ranch are related to cattle,” Doris revealed.
‘With so many people, everything can happen at any time.
“It could just be a sheep stuck with fencing around its neck, or a goat having contractions with a broken baby, or a coyote chasing after and killing my chickens.
“The worst thing is when a bear eats half an animal and leaves it alive for me to find it in the morning. That happened twice.
“A pig with its shoulder eaten off, still completely alive but clearly not going to make it.
“I just have to take my gun and put the pig down. It’s probably the hardest job there is when an animal is sick or injured or born malformed and I have to shoot them.
‘I find it hard’.
There is not such creepy content on their account and some online commentators have even criticized girls’ over-sexuality in rural life.
“I’ve decided to soften the sexy things lately,” Doris admitted.
“But that’s pretty hard with Lexi and her big beautiful **.
“And because she’s a girl from Florida, she’s of course jumping around in her thong all summer.”
Despite its history of growing cannabis, Doris is not a fan of seasonal volunteers who come high on offer.
“I was a complete stoner between the ages of 16 and 29,” she admits.
“But when I started my business, I realized that I couldn’t be high and productive at the same time.
The women also hire seasonal workers – although they are only allowed to smoke after the service
Seen: night rest equipment for baby goats. Bears are a big problem for them.

‘And it’s funny, because everyone who comes here for the first time assumes that it’s okay to be high while working at a pot nursery. But I have a strict no smoking policy, until after work anyway.
“I hate dealing with a bunch of stoners. There are so many things they can mess up, from feeding to watering, so much better I say to keep smoking for after work. “
This year Doris is extending the girls’ operation.
“This year we are building two more small houses to rent on Airbnb, our last year was a hit and I did zero marketing.
‘We also start retreats here; building a commercial kitchen and a dining / meeting space at the top of the mountain with nearby platforms that will house canvas tents.
The women are proud of their goats and often have to feed the baby goats themselves

“The different retreats include yoga, permaculture, animal husbandry, women, health, native American culture, herbal tinctures and more.”
And Doris is adamant that she will never live in a city again.
“I intend to educate my children here and educate them at home,” she said.
“I am an entrepreneur at heart, so I will always create new companies, whether they are products or services, but they will all be focused on this lifestyle.”
But it is certainly not life for everyone, as Doris himself quickly indicates.
“The worst of this life is without a doubt,” she says, “that I cannot order food or pick up something easy.
‘I am hardcore in not eating processed foods, so I cook everything all over again.
“And after a long, hot, 15-hour day of chores, I would give anything just to pick up.”
