Product description

Product Description

What does it take to become a successful homesteader?

Written in the same informative style as 5 Acres & A Dream The Blog, Leigh Tate shares how she and her husband Dan are facing the challenges of trying to establish a self-sufficient homestead: defining their dream, problems encountered during property hunting, evaluating the land, setting goals and priorities, identifying obstacles, dealing with difficult times, and learning how to work smarter, not harder. She shares what they've learned about energy, water, and food self-sufficiency for themselves and their critters too. Included are copies of their homestead master plan, how to calculate feed with the Pearson Square, homegrown vitamins and mineral mixes for goats, a list of useful resources, and several of Leigh's favorite homestead recipes.

About the Author

Leigh Tate homesteads five acres in the foothills of the southern Appalachian Mountains with her husband Dan. Their goals are simpler, sustainable, more self-reliant living, and a return to agrarian values. In addition to critter keeping, gardening, food preservation, cheese making, and woodstove cookery, Leigh loves to write about homesteading. She is the author of the popular 5 Acres & A Dream The Book: The Challenges of Establishing a Self-Sufficient Homestead, an eBook series entitled The Little Series of Homestead How-Tos, and Critter Tales: What my homestead critters have taught me about themselves, their world, and how to be a part of it. Her ongoing homestead adventures can be read at her blog, 5 Acres & A Dream The Blog.
