Hi there, I’m Kristi…
I am SO glad you are here.
If you are wanting to learn how to garden, ferment and preserve food, raise small livestock, use herbs for medicine, raise the game on your natural well-being, or are a homesteader of any kind, urban or rural, this is the blog for you! These are the things I write about every week!
I started off an urban homesteader about 10 years ago, where I homesteaded our .18 of an acre. There, I grew food, raised chickens and rabbits, learned to can our garden bounty, and cook from scratch.
I now live on a small 1-acre hobby farm where I do all of the above, plus breed Nigerian Dwarf goats as part of our income. The plan is to make our homestead our business as we move into our retirement years.
My promise to you is that as you read my blog, you will learn from the ground up some very important components of homesteading. In short, you will become a HOMESTEADING HERO if you apply yourself!
I also promise to be “present” with you–this means that you can contact me any time with questions or comments, and I WILL answer you. It’s how I roll!
Want to start homesteading now?
I’ve written many articles where I teach at the beginner level specific homesteading skills.
Start growing your own food today
Gardening not only saves you money, but it can improve your mental and physical health by helping you connect with your land, and cutting back on pesticide consumption.
Make your own home remedies
Herbs can be very helpful for minor illnesses and injuries, and can be a hugely convenient skill to know.
I have a ton of great homesteading articles that promise to help you learn the skills you want, when you want.
Whatever season you are reading this, I have some great ideas to keep you busy on your homestead.
I love to craft, and I’ve always loved the idea of hand-making holiday gifts. If you love that idea too, check these out.
I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, which means I have a lot of down-home country-style recipes that I use regularly.
Drop me a line!
Feel free to email me with questions or comments. I always answer back!
