You won’t find Miranda Lambert spending her money on fancy cars and outrageously priced designer clothes.  Instead, Miranda and her husband Blake Shelton choose to invest in land.  According to Miranda’s new interview with Good Housekeeping, the couple’s land holdings top out at about 4,000 acres.

That love of the land may have something to do with Miranda’s childhood.  When she was young, her parents’ private investigation business went under.  They were forced to live with family members for a few years before being able to rent their own place in Lindale, TX.  That’s when the Lambert family literally started living off the land — growing their own fruits and vegetables and keeping their own animals to eat eventually.

“We didn’t go to the store for anything but milk,” Miranda says.  “My mom made bread and canned everything from the garden.  We had chickens, pigs and rabbits.  My dad hunted.”

Miranda continues that way of life today.  You may recall she actually killed the deer to provide the venison served at her wedding in May 2011.
