Tiny Farm Friends Ep. 24
How beautiful it is to find a partner who shares your dream to move to the countryside, build naturally, create art, and start a community.
Our guests today are one such curious, creative, and cute couple.
It would be safe to say that one of their love languages is giving and receiving hand-poked tattoos.
They moved to a remote rural Konkan village in Maharashtra, to live a self-sufficient life. Famous for their tattoos and snake art, Corrie and Abhishek are the founders of Red Earth House.
