Our Story


This all began with the idea to retire and leave less of a foot print on the environment. We have had a lot of fun building and renovating this Quonset hut to make it comfortable for visitors to stay. Q40 Farm was a way for us to embrace our love of farming and staying active. We hope you enjoy this historical World War 2 hut and beautiful land in Alaska.
