How to Begin Homesteading Without a Farm

“Homesteading” can be a big and scary word. It can imply a fear that one must buy ten acres of farmland and a herd of cattle before they can even begin. But, that is definitely not the case!

There are easy steps one can take to begin the transformation into self-­reliance. By definition, all “homestead” means is a person’s house, property, and outbuildings.

LEARN TO COOK FROM SCRATCH

No box of store­ bought, just add meat dinner will ever taste as good as something made from scratch. The internet is a plethora of delicious and easy recipes.

BAKE YOUR OWN BREAD

PLANT A GARDEN
