If you’re dreaming of one day starting a homestead, but keep telling yourself, “maybe someday”, think again.
There’s not one way of doing something.
Just like you don’t have to go to college to be successful, you don’t need 200+ acres and a team of 20 to start homesteading (although it’d be nice). In fact, homesteading and self-sufficiency are best started in small doses.
Like any habit or change, starting small is the best way to learn and make lasting change. So, before you jump into growing dozens of different varieties of plants, why not start with a few?
Take your time to master the skills you want, one at a time, and quickly build your homesteading knowledge and confidence.
