Homesteading is a term that you may have heard or seen as you scrolled social media. Our world has changed a lot in the last few years, and more people are seeing the benefits of homesteading. So, what is homesteading? Well, simply put, it is a lifestyle of self-sufficiency.
There are many ways a family can be self-sufficient. Growing a garden for fresh food all summer, and then preserving the food to have all winter. Raising chickens, pigs, cow, sheep, rabbits, etc. for meat, are ways to ensure fresh food without the hassle of rising food costs and empty store shelves. Making items to sell at the local farmers markets are ways to earn cash, along with selling eggs, goats milk soap, vegetables, or home baked items.
This summer, make sure to stop by a farm market. Support the local farmers. Fresh food tastes amazing and homemade/handcrafted items are always made with love!
