Here are the best homesteading blogs you should be following by now. Go ahead and follow these knowledgable, real life homesteaders as they share their tips, tricks and best resources to help you make your homesteading dreams a reality!
When we first bought our 10 acre piece of property, we were clueless about anything that had to do with homesteading- at least we thought we were.
I’d been canning since my teenage years with my mom, and loved gardening with her as I grew up. I never thought I’d own a chicken, let alone cows.
But I knew in my heart, that simple living with wide open spaces and fresh air is where I needed to be.
I know you feel that way too. Homesteading is an amazing lifestyle, and finding other homesteaders, following their journey as you grow as a Modern Homesteader has more benefits that you’ll know.
The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is poor a cup of coffee, and read my email. There’s something about getting a good piece of advice, recipe, diy tutorial or funny story from someone else that get’s it, that makes getting out of bed and started with the day exciting.
I won’t be the first to admit it, sometimes it's overwhelming and difficult this homesteading journey thing.
That’s why I’m sharing with you today, the top homesteading blogs to motivate and inspire you in your homesteading journey.
Remember it’s not a final destination or a race or comparison but a journey and a family of crazy people that want to live like it’s the 1950’s or even earlier, when homestead life was the norm.
Without further a do…
