What I Tell People Who Want to Homestead

There seems to be a myth that you have to have a big beautiful farmhouse, or barn, or acreage in order to homestead. This is completely false! You can start homesteading wherever you are, at any time!

We homesteaded our first 17 years without even owning a tractor! We raise all our own meat animals and we don’t even have a barn! We use things like shipping containers because they’re practical and affordable.

Living by the motto of only buying what we can pay for with cash means we’re not getting in over our heads, or going into debt to create an idyllic farm. We’ve definitely come up with many hacks to “make it all work” and in today’s video, I’m sharing them with you!
