Mountain Men: Meet Margaret Stern, Morgan Beasley Wife
Morgan Beasley and his partner, Margaret Stern, have not appeared on Mountain Men since the Season 8 finale. During their time on the show, they were building a homestead life on the dangerous land of Alaska.
The adorable duo is the minds behind Apricity Alaska, which is their homestead located in the remote foothills on the western side of the Alaska Range. Per their website, their rustic wilderness homestead is located 150 miles from the nearest road and can be accessed solely by small airplanes.
The couple first moved to Alaska in February 2015 and have since focused on creating an off-the-grid life for themselves and their animals–which include dogs Rufous and Maggie and an Icelandic Horse herd.
While it’s not clear if Margaret and Morgan were married as of 2022, their bonding certainly makes you think they’re a couple. The couple rarely posts pictures of them on social media, but when they do it can any people cry.
Ahead of Valentine’s day on February 12, 2020, Margaret wrote some sweet, heartfelt words reflecting back on her relationship with Morgan. They read: ‘Today I woke up, and thought “I’ve missed some important day. Hmm.. Valentines is next week, no birthdays, no other holidays…” and then I realized I forgot the day we first camped out and arrived on the property… But that day was momentous. It shaped the next five years…”
On February 1, 2018, the couple shared the pictures of two of them showing off their awesome hats hand-knit by Morgan’s mom.
Margaret’s partner, Morgan Beasley, learned to pack horses as soon as he graduated from the University of Idaho with an Environmental Science degree. After moving to Alaska, Morgan worked as a wrangler at sheep hunting camps refining his horse-packing talents and began exploring Alaska on long solo backpacking trips.
Over the years, Morgan has worked “in construction, cabinetry, fish processing, on trail crews and as a guide and wrangler, and even as the caretaker for a remote homestead in Idaho.” He is also a private pilot and Stinson aircraft enthusiast.
