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.

Stay Connected

We 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 collaborative e-book, Ten Herbs from Garden to Plate, a simple guide to growing herbs and using herbs, wherever you live. You’ll also receive links to new posts, occasional offers and neat things going on around the Web in the homesteading community.
