The Journey of Cody Crone, who runs the Wranglerstar YouTube channel, chose to live the path of primitive homesteading and leave behind the urban life of modernity with his own family. Let’s find out everything about their Homesteading Life & reason behind it.
Who are the Wranglerstar?
The successful Wranglerstar YouTube channel is being run by a Christian family of three.
The husband, Cody Crone, is famously known as “Mr. Wranglerstar,” his loving wife Jessica Rogers, who is known as “Mrs. Wranglerstar and they have a son who is named Jack or being called “Jack Wranglerstar.”
They are Americans who are now residing in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The Wranglerstar’s journey started way back in 2010 when the newly united couple Cody and Jessica decided to live in the wilderness and live in modern homesteading instead.
It was on the 9th of September when they first launched their YouTube channel. At first, they only found YouTube as an appropriate platform to share their new form of living with their loved ones.
Their YouTube channel has approximately 1.8 million subscribers and is still growing as they continue to share their modern homesteading adventures.
Cody Crone is a 52 years old man who was born on April 4, 1969. He used to live in White Salmon City, Washington, in the United States of America. It was back in 2003 when Cody and his now-wife Jessica Rogers started dating.
How Cody Met Jessica?
Jessica is someone who is physically active and has loved running ever since she was in High School. She ran marathons and half-marathons, and of course, she wanted to share her passion with Cody as well.
However, Cody never had run any mile and disliked running. So, to truly win Jessica’s heart, Cody made an effort to buy running shoes and a pair of shorts. Then, the couple went for one run.
Cody loves his wife wholeheartedly and knows that whatever is important to her has now become important for him as well. Their love story’s foundation was not just built up from love and loyalty to each other but also from their love and faithfulness in serving God.
When the couple got wed, they were hopeful for a bright future that God had planned for them. Seemingly, Cody and Jessica find something lacking in their shared urban lives.
After attending a few Bible study sessions and some insights from inspirational books, mainly read by Jessica, that’s when it clicked to the couple that they needed a fresh start.
Journey to Homesteading
They believed that sticking to basics and having a simple life is the sincerest form of walking their lives with God.
Living of the Grid, the new lifestyle. Before living off on their own, Cody and Jessica were invited by a homesteading couple in Montana.
They spent the weekend together in their living off, and their stay there had Cody and Jessica more convinced that they should start living off the grid as well. After that trip, the couple started packing their things, and they bought a small property somewhere in Washington’s wilderness and started homesteading.
The new lifestyle that Cody and Jessica invested in is something truly beautiful. At the start, they each used to work for over 80 hours a week and were struggling to manage the time to see each other.
They couldn’t even eat a meal together when they were adjusting. But, not everything at the start is easy, right? At the end of the exhausting day,
Cody and Jessica were each other’s breathers in their new life. Their homesteading life couldn’t be more wonderful when they had their son, Jack. Additionally to their
Life off-the-grid lifestyle, they started to share their everyday lives in the media. When Cody and Jessica launched their channel, its genuine purpose was to share and inform people how their homesteading life is.
Little did they know that their channel would grow into a community and that they would earn a profit from it?
Living off the grid is something that completed Cody and Jessica’s lives, and they even got a bonus of being blessed with a child, Jack, who is now in his teenage years. It was like life couldn’t be better for them. What they share
Online are mostly about handyman works, such as lumberjacking, timber farming, carpentry, logging, irrigation, how they connect with nature, and family vlogs about their Christian living.
The quality of their everyday lives is being shown to their viewers and subscribers. The highest viewed video in their YouTube channel was “Testing the Toughest Cordless Drills on Amazon,” they uploaded the video four years ago and earned them 15 million views.
Having shared their most lives in digital media for more than a decade, most of their uploaded videos have achieved more than 2 million views to this day.
As the family continues to share their lives with the public and online, they also experience setbacks, it’s normal, and its part of anyone’s life. They used to feel that somehow other people could be more invasive than they could have imagined.
That is why the family decided to limit what the public eye can see and know about in their private lives.
Wranglerstar is not there Real Name
The “Wranglerstar” used by their family is not really their real name. Yes, you read it right. The same goes with their names like Cody, Jessica, and even their son’s name. Jack was not the real one. Their little family chose to keep it a secret, and they never revealed it to anyone.
If they were being interviewed, they asked for the interviewers to keep their real identities hidden and used their names as Cody, Jessica, and Jack instead. That is how they want their lives to be, and like any other people; they want others to respect their decision.
Despite not revealing their real identities to the public, Cody, Jessica, and Jack remain truthful in the videos that they upload.
On the last 8th of September in 2020, the Wranglerstar uploaded a video entitled “The Real Reason We Moved.” In the video, Cody explained their new homesteading and why they left their old homestead. He shared that their modern homesteading is twice as big and twice as beautiful.
They have a closer view of Mt. Fuji, and there’s also a river that runs in their property. At the same time, the river serves as a border to the other side of the land that the Wranglerstar does not own. They never actually revealed the location of their new place.
The Wranglerstar’s Net Worth
Their homesteading life didn’t just end up flourishing on YouTube, but they also achieved their journey in writing. In 2015, they launched their first book entitled “Modern Homesteading: Rediscovering the American Dream.” Its content is about servanthood with God Through living simplicity and self-reliance.
Much like their YouTube content and all the life lessons they discovered through living on a homestead. They sell their book in two formats, the paperback and in PDF.
Now, with all the million views that they get from their YouTube videos and their published book,
Wranglerstar channel contains around 2,712 videos, has 1.87 million subscribers, and they have more than 640 million views which translates to approximately 3 million dollars.
Normally in the U.S., YouTube content creators earn 4-12 dollars per thousand views of a monetized video. The Wranglerstar once shared that the first check they got from YouTube was a hundred dollars and was in disbelief that they would make it into real money.
Yet, they realized that they could earn a profit from sharing their lives on their YouTube channel.
Just from their YouTube channel, the Wranglerstar’s earnings struck up to $580,000 per year. Right now, Wranglerstar earned profit from the ads that were being shown in their videos and from their published book about the success of homesteading.
Therefore, the estimated net worth of the Wranglerstar is around 1.5 million dollars.
The Wranglerstar family may be earning a large amount of money, but they remain humble, and that can be seen in their uploaded videos on how they interact with other people.
