I’m on a voyage to turn my farm into a self sustaining homestead. Because let’s face it life is extremely expensive. Have you ever watched tv and seen these people who pick up and they leave the comforts of their home town all to a place in the backwoods of somewhere in the world that has very little anything there. Then on top of that they are OFF GRID! No comforts of living in the city where food can be delivered to your door, or electric for that matter! Some of them have no indoor plumbing even! They go from a hunk of land and turn it into something amazing. Well I can say we have came a very long way. However we are far from making it on our own.
How do they do it? I’ve read blogs and books. All saying basically the same things about cattle, and farm animals. Selling chicken eggs, and other items to make the world better for themselve. However selling eggs is one way, and one that works I had my fair share of problems with those darn chickens too. Which sellomg eggs isn’t going to be enough to pay taxes for this place. Let alone the other expenses we have.
So how do these farmers do it? Do they really make enough to support their families?
Well right now I don’t know, but we are going on a journey together to find out.
