‘Alaskan Bush People’: Here’s Why Noah Brown No Longer Lives on Family Homestead

by Brandi Stillings

“Alaskan Bush People” reality star Noah Brown, along with his wife and son, have decided to vacate their usual rustic mountain surroundings. In search for a better living situation, a few of his siblings also agree it’s time to move.

Back in August 2020, fans should remember the dramatic season finale when the entire mountain retreat was burning down. The Brown family were then forced to leave their beloved land. Continuing for days, the wildfire made the national news in Okanogan County, Washington. Then tragically, at the age of 68, Billy Brown passed away from a seizure in February.

No longer living at Brown Town, like his father envisioned, Noah wanted to set the record straight to his followers on Instagram the real reason they left. Apparently, the move had nothing to do with drama between him and his siblings.

According to his Instagram photo, featuring trees from his old family homestead, the caption reads:

“To set the record straight so that everyone can stop asking and speculating,” he wrote in the recent post. “The mountain is home, North Star Ranch is home, the only reason that we are not on the mountain right now is because Rhain and I personally lost everything in the Palmer mountain wildfire; so we are in a rent house until we can rebuild what we lost.”

Other members of the Brown family seem to be having a hard time adjusting to the recent unfortunate events. Bear Brown announced shortly after his late father’s death that he may not be returning to the show.

After 12 seasons, Bear Brown has made the tough decision to leave the reality show. His father’s death seemed to take a toll on his motivation.

In an Instagram post he revealed, “it’s with a heavy heart, I’ve decided to no longer continue filming for Alaskan Bush People!”

The photo displayed a selfie of himself, along with mountains and blue sky in the background. Bear described the series as a “wild ride” to his followers.

According to ScreenRant.com, fans last saw Bear was when he updated his followers about his trip to Texas to celebrate his son River’s first birthday. Bear had a grand time swimming in the pool and showing off his luxurious hotel bathroom. During that trip, Bear and Raiven were getting along so well that fans believed they could have secretly tied the knot.

Currently, fans are speculating whether or not they’re going to cancel The Discovery Channel show. Some think members of the Brown family are struggling to film, while others agree the show needs Billy.
