Living Off The Land – Feed Your family From Your Homestead…

Living Off The Land - Feed Your family From Your Homestead...

A homestead is a place of production. Food, fiber, and fuel are just a few of the things a homestead can produce for a family. Most importantly, a homestead can produce a great quality of life for you, and those you care most about.

In this video we give you a tour of our homestead at its peak, early summer. This time of year is a busy one for us. We have chickens on pasture, for both meat and eggs. We have pigs we are raising to feed our family, and provide us with some product to sell to our local community. We have a cow in the fields, eating grass. She is pregnant, producing a calve, and soon, farm fresh milk. We also have ducks, turkeys, and guineas, all helping to produce and care for the land we live on.



We also are growing plants on our homestead. Potatoes, tomatoes, herbs. The new orchard is growing apples, pears, peaches, plumbs, nectarines and lots and lots of berries!

In addition to food, our homestead provides us with fuel, energy, and a wonderful place to raise a family. Take a tour of our homestead today, and be inspired to grow your own homestead! Check it out below…

If you like this idea, be sure to share it with your friends and inspire someone you know. Anything becomes possible with just a little inspiration…
