Welcome to Homestead Lady!
This is the record of the successes, flops and experiments of our family of seven as we work, step by step, to build a self-sufficient lifestyle. Pursing self-sustaining cycles in the garden and the barnyard, we’re every day coming closer to our goal of provident living while honoring our commitment to be good stewards of the land. Raising a wholesome, homestead family takes a great deal of work and we’re grateful for the myriad of ways in which we’ve been blessed, even by our setbacks.
In the old-time spirit of sharing what little we know to build up the community around, we invite you to poke around the blog and see what sparks your interest.
The purpose of Homestead Lady is to help you build your self-sufficient lifestyle one level at a time. We believe the best way to do that effectively is to educate ourselves and experiment a lot. We’re particularly proud of the written and digital materials we’ve created for Homestead Lady readers and hope they will be of benefit to you. Our personal philosophy is that you can never study this homesteading lifestyle TOO much – there’s always something new to learn!
Stay ConnectedWe also encourage you to stay connected by joining our newsletter family. We love to chat with you, though we’re not very consistent with posting (lots of time spent in the barn or the kitchen), so we promise we won’t flood your inbox. Joining our newsletter will give you free access to our E-Book, Health Wise Food Storage, a go-to resource for a once a month canning schedule, tips on making the family dinner hour healthier and brainstorming activities to get your home storage program organized this year. You’ll also receive links to new posts, occasional offers and neat things going on around the Web in the homesteading community. On top of all that, you'll also get an access code for our members-only Newsletter Family Library, with other free E-Titles and resources created just for you on a myriad of homesteading topics. The Library is being added to all the time, so be sure to check it out!
