About Kierste Wade

Welcome! Here at Old Salt Farm you’ll find my journey to making our house a home. I’m married and mama to 6, including two sets of twins, and together we live in upstate NY in our farmhouse in the woods. DIY and home decor projects are on repeat, always working on a budget to create a beautiful and functional space for our family of 8. Simplicity and a farmhouse aesthetic are what I love best.

With more than 20 years of DIY experience, I’ve been sharing ideas for home and family since 2009. I have a bachelor’s degree in Finance and Business, and have worked with many brands including Better Homes & Gardens, Delta Faucet, American Farmhouse Style, Walmart, and HP. I’ve been named a Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker every year since 2017.

I love celebrating holidays, and sharing fun and easy traditions to bring families and friends together. I’m author of the book Simply Tradition, a book all about holiday traditions for families with more than 70 simple ideas to celebrate.

Easy recipes, organization, and easy gift ideas are also some of my favorite things, and you’ll see them featured here. You don’t need to be fancy or spend a lot of money to have a home that you love, celebrate holidays, or enjoy quality time with your family.

So get comfy…grab a cozy blanket, and take a look around! Hopefully you’ll find a bit of your journey here too. xoxo
