Raneys to the Rescue! Meet the Cast of Discovery’s ‘Homestead Rescue’

Living off the grid certainly isn't for everyone, but for the cast of Homestead Rescue, it's a way of life. The Raneys may look like your average family, but these folks know how to live off the land — and are helping other families do the same on the hit show.

According to Discovery's bio, "In the last decade, two million Americans have attempted to leave behind civilization in favor of life off-the-grid — but most have failed. For the hundreds of families who decide to become homesteaders, the learning curve is a steep one. On Homestead Rescue, struggling homesteaders across the country are turning expert homesteader Marty Raney — along with his daughter Misty Raney, a farmer, and son Matt Raney, a hunter and fisherman — to teach them the necessary skills to survive the wilderness."

The children grew up in the family business: Alaska Stone and Log. They peeled logs, quarried stone, and learned the value of hard work. Together, they build beautiful cabins, homes, and structures with the simplest of tools. Get to know more about the Raneys below!
