Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
Continuing our homesteading theme, I’ve been pleasantly surprised recently about how interested many folks are about the homestead life.
Homesteading means many things to different people. It’s not all Little House on the Prairie, or Alone in the Wilderness, although those are two fun shows to watch, especially the latter.
Here are the Homestead Blog Hop, you’ll find that all kinds of home-related content is shared. Some may be related to homesteading directly, and some, not so much. That’s ok. You may find another blogger who shares a passion similar to your own interests. That’s what the Blog Hop is all about!
If you’ve come as a result of the Ultimate Blog Challenge, you’re welcome to link up your posts as well. We try to keep to the general home-related theme, and to find someone else to visit as well.
If you’re new to my blog, welcome!
Who We Are (Just a Refresher)
Here are a couple of posts to let you know about us and why we do what we do.
Blogging About Our Off Grid Homestead
We don’t just share building protects, thankfully! We have a life outside of the projects, or, shall I say, we have other projects that keep us busy.
🪴I like to learn and share about herbs, too. 🌿 How about you? Do you enjoy herbs and herbal remedies?
Ridge Haven Homestead on YouTube
We are also working on our YouTube channel (💥pssstt—you can subscribe!💥) and that can give you even more perspective into living off the grid and homesteading. Here is one fun video where I visited a local bulk food store where the people generally embrace a slower life.

Another video that may be interesting to you is Five Years Living Off the Grid…
We aren’t finished with homesteading. We are working hard to finish our cabin, and will likely always have plenty of DIY projects to tackle, but we do look forward to finishing up the house.
Someone asked me recently if we will ever get to the day when we can sit back and do nothing. Honestly, probably not— not in the sense of will we ever live a life of ease,
Hard work seems to go with the homesteading lifestyle, but we do pursue the day when we don’t have so many projects going on simultaneously.
Today the boys are building our back porch. I’m canning okra, tackling a complicated blog issue, and working on cleaning out the living room construction zone. Later on, we have the church youth group, and the boys will want to hit the gym. Life does keep rolling.
Now, it’s time to share!
Thanks for coming by!
I’ve loved the feedback! Ask us anything!
Have a great day!
This is more than just a blog share. Feel free to chat, ask questions, and get to know each other in the comments as well. We want to be supportive of other bloggers as you make your incredible content!
