The purpose of this blog is not to tell you how to create and grow your homestead but how to forge your homesteading paths that will allow you to live your dream on your terms. I found that on my homesteading journey I've found a lot of great information regarding many different aspects of homesteading. For instance, you can find blogs detailing how to properly plan your garden or what animals are best to raise on less than an acre but what about the big picture? There no one homesteader out there that will have every answer to every question you have. Homesteading is not an all or nothing lifestyle, it's a journey. If you're considering homesteading it's because there is something about your current lifestyle that isn't satisfying.
My blog may have the tips and tricks you may be searching for. You'll without a doubt see my successes and the predictable failures that stem from my suburban background. I'll even throw in some pretty pictures of our land and animals, but the focus of this blog is why we homestead and how to make your journey your own. You don't wake up one day, buy a piece of land, and BOOM you're a homesteader! It's a lifelong pursuit of obtaining a seemingly simpler, more self-sustainable lifestyle. There will never be a time that every project is complete, and you'll develop a deep appreciation for everything you've accomplished while still having a yearning to do more. Please don't believe anyone who tells you they've mastered homesteading. It's not something that can be mastered. Your skills will improve, you will accomplish great things, and perhaps you'll even mentor future homesteaders as they embark on their journey.
