While living on the homestead, he continued the self-sufficient life and was raised painting a herd of cows over the years. This was while providing his family with healthy grass-fed beef.
His trademark as a collector of all useful stuff and equipment has always been recycling and reusing. When he needs something, he can make it appear out of a pile of “junk” known to him as treasurer. Being a seasoned expert at everything, he’s a person who can do almost anything. Most of his life skills have been passed down to his sons Eivin, August, Levi, and his stepson Torrey. There, he gives them all a “can do” practical background that is rare to find these days.
Otto ranches and operates a boat transportation service while he sits on the Kenai Peninsula Cooperative Weed Management Area Council. Asides from this, he is an active member of the Kenai Peninsula Farm Bureau. Kilcher states that he has always been interested in mechanics.
