Plot Synopsis

HOMESTEAD RESCUE is a one-hour reality series that follows expert homesteader Marty Raney -- along with his daughter Misty Raney, a farmer; and son Matt Raney, a hunter and fisherman -- as they help families who attempted to leave behind civilization in favor of life off-the-grid -- but failed. The trio teaches them the necessary skills to survive the wilderness. The stakes are high, but the Raney family is determined to prepare these families for nature's worst and set them up for success. Each family faces the ultimate decision: will they tough out their first year or pack up and return to civilization? In the series opener, the Raneys help Beth and Mike Ettinger who live in an abandoned ghost town in Montana, where many previous homesteaders failed. Survival is a battle on this homestead that is stalked by a mountain lion and void of any livestock, water or food. Season 2 of HOMESTEAD RESCUE premiered on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery. In the season opener, "Wolves at the Door," poisoned well water and a mystery predator plague an Arizona homestead. After the family dog is killed, the Raneys must act quick to stop the couple from becoming the next victims.
Season 3 of HOMESTEAD RESCUE premiered on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel. In the new season, father Marty, daughter Misty, and son Matt help struggling families learn new bush craft skills, protect their livestock, grow food, and face the most grueling challenges yet seen, leaving some with the stark decision to tough it out or pack it up and head back for civilization. In the season opener, "The Bears and the Bees," the Raneys find a bee-keeper with hives attracting bears and a homestead too unsanitary for a child to visit. Marty builds a bathhouse and bush-engineers a windmill water pump, but violent winds threaten to derail his mission to reunite a family.
