Peter M. Hoffman

From an early age Peter learned self-reliant skills from his parents and grandparents, which instilled in him a passion for living off the land. His thirst for knowledge lead him to the Pathfinder School where he continued to develop his primitive and self-reliance skills, ultimately becoming an instructor himself. 

Being a lifelong learner, Peter has continued to gain knowledge in herbalism, has created his own permaculture design which includes a blacksmith forge, built his own off grid cabin from recycled materials, an orchard with an integrated pond and watering system, extracted maple sap from multiple forests for maple syrup production, and learned to harvest and make full use of wild game. He has worked with National Geographic and The History Channel, has been published in The Backwoodsman Magazine and has developed his own YouTube channel, Intricate Nature. 

Bending Oak is proud to be a family owned and family-first workplace; In an effort to honor our staff and their families we will be closed on holidays.
