Welcome Friends and Fellow Homesteaders!
As a community, homesteaders have been sharing their knowledge, skills, and home goods with each other for hundreds of years. It’s the essence of who we are! If you were closer, I’d be on my way over with a pint of raw honey and a dozen farm fresh eggs! We’d talk about how this weather has affected the hay crop, how many quarts of apple cider you put up this fall, the new chickens we’re getting this spring- and your grandmother’s famous roasted chicken recipe.
I can’t think of a better way to honor traditional homesteading values, than to share with each other our struggles and successes, gardening tips, stories about raising kids and animals, how-to’s, natural health care and recipes- even if it is over the internet. I love being part of this incredible, supportive, and fun community.
