First, my apologies for not having posted any content for a while now. Life just keeps getting in the way and time isn't cooperating., though it rarely does. This weekend we were stuck with an unexpected internet outage caused by "Progress" as new utility poles and streetlights were installed as there have been some big developments in the area over the last month or so.
The new project!!
Hello and thanks for dropping by!! Last week I said I had some big news, well here it is. Today I want to talk about and unveil a new project that I am asking your help with.
Can we make money with aHomestead?
Through out the last 2 posts, we have decided that yes homesteading is for us, figured out ways to financially afford the homestead, planning, designing and we even started getting into some of the larger expenses- buildings, barns, fencing and even solar energy, this post is going to focus on ways to make some money from our homestead.
Planning Your Homestead
So after reading our last blog or maybe just with the help of our last blog, you've decided you want to homestead. This blog will show you what is possible on your Homestead, we'll be sharing some more blogs and articles from other bloggers and authors and we're going to also be sharing some great video advice from Joel Salatin and a couple of our other friends.
A lot of people have the misconception that to have a homestead you need a spread that would rival the Ponderosa in the tv series Bonanza. While that would certainly be nice, it is far from the truth. You can Homestead no matter where you live, a large city, a suburb, a 1/4 acre or even in an apartment. You just have to scale the homestead to your particular situation.
For this post, we had hoped to have gotten through the weeks best blogs, posts and articles that we wanted to share with you and provide a synopsis. But like everything in life, especially in homesteading, we can't bend others schedules to fit our needs and something unexpected always seems to happen. This week things were interrupted by the coyotes still jumping the fence in the "Back 40" and my having to add another layer of fencing and several unexpected customers dropping by looking for lambs.
We will be posting the week's best stories, articles and blogs on producing your own food and getting a Homestead started later tonight or tomorrow.
