Finding information on how to live a homesteading life is difficult. Newcomers on the path to living sustainably are often overwhelmed before the journey can begin. Those new to homesteading should ask themselves:
- Am I comfortable with preserving the harvest through canning, drying, fermenting, curing, and other method?
- Can I establish a garden and raise livestock with ease?
- Is natural living something I seek for myself, my family, and livestock?
- Do I understand the concept of simple living and have the desire to learn how to achieve this?
Many enter this life without the necessary skills or mentor to guide them.
Much of this life is self-taught, though finding the right individual to guide you makes the transition into homesteading easier. There are no shortcuts when it comes to living a homesteading life. Let me be the encourager you seek.
Preserving the Harvest
Preserving the harvest through the various methods available can be overwhelming. For this reason, I decided to simplify the information by writing a book on how to successfully preserve foods at home.
A simple to understand guide which covers the A-Z of home food preservation containing tips which took me years to gather. The Farm Girl’s Guide to Preserving the Harvest is a reference you will use often.
Included in the book are a few of my family’s favorite recipes. Consider it a gift from our farmhouse kitchen to yours.
What has this done for me? It has allowed me to encourage and guide others through this life. Giving them the ease which I was not blessed to have.
Here with me, you will find tips on gardening, raising livestock, and how to preserve the harvest in order to consume it year round. Not to mention, the importance of learning how to live a holistic life through herbs, essential oils, and colloidal silver.
In addition to sustainable living, learn how to reclaim the life of simple living. Discover the lost art of making salves and tinctures. How to create a chemical free homestead.
Learn to make soaps, laundry soap, and chemical free cleaning supplies.
More importantly, discover the are of simple living. Where being an introvert accepted among your homesteading tribe.
About A Farm Girl in the Making
Hello there, I am Ann. A once suburban housewife turned sustainable homesteader. Consider me a transplant into the movement of cooking from scratch, clean eating, food ownership, preserving the harvest, natural living, and the art of living simply.
Unlike many, I was not returning to a homesteading/farming life. This journey which I am living is based on being self-taught. Years of research, successes, failures, and a whole lotta do-overs.
Now, with a few years under my belt, A Farm Girl in the Making represents me as an author, blogger, speaker, and entrepreneur. This homesteading life is an ongoing adventure, one I am extremely excited to be on.
Welcome to my homestead. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s visit a bit. Remember, you’re always welcomed here.
