Owners of an unsanitary homestead in North Carolina call the Raneys to help clean up; build a septic system; and address the honey bee hives that attract bears. Then, the Raneys battle flash floods in Hawaii to keep a homestead from going under.
A hungry bear scratching the walls, disease carrying ticks, no food to eat, no power to cry for help, and 60 massive oaks looming over a flimsy cabin in tornado alley present the Raneys with their greatest challenge to date.
In Arizona, a family needs the Raneys' help to bring food to their desert home and protect the homestead from coyotes and a cow-gone-wild. Then, the Raneys help a malnourished couple in the Ozarks build a garden and mold-free cabin.
The Raneys face a first: a homestead completely abandoned by a couple now stranded in an Ohio suburb. Hope lies solely in firing up a rusted old gas well and converting natural gas into light, heat, and power to shock this homestead back to life.
The Raneys help an Oregon homestead trapped at the bottom of a 100-foot cliff that separates them from four acres of land that they need for food and livestock; Marty takes a risk forming a road up a bedrock cliff to a forest with mountain lions.
The Raneys must rescue an Arizona family struggling with livestock-eating coyotes and hungry cattle. While Marty and Matt try to build a large livestock "fort" from three 40 foot storage containers, Misty must find a way to grow crops in the desert.
In the Season 3 premiere, the Raneys find a beekeeper with hives attracting bears and a homestead too unsanitary for a child to visit; and Marty builds a bathhouse and bush-engineers a windmill-water pump, but violent winds threaten to derail his mission to reunite a family.
