Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Homesteading…What does that mean to you?

Homesteading means many things to different people.  It could mean a garden in your backyard, or a country property burying with potential!  It could mean a lifestyle of hard work or a weekend hobby.

To me it if the lifestyle, the country living experience, and the road to becoming more self-sufficient.  It’s a thousand things all working together to make a property into a functional place to live.

As you look at the entries on the blog hop, you may see many that don’t reflect your homesteading outlook, and you’ll probably find a few that do.  That’s why it’s good for all of us to come together and share.  We gain new perspectives and ideas, and learn new ways of looking at familiar challenges.

Share in one sentence what homesteading means to you.  I’m curious to find out!


Thanks for coming!



Now on to the Hop

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more!
