5 Acres and A Dream!

5 Acres and A Dream
Host: Renee “Homestead Honey Hour

5-12 5 Acres and A DreamModern day homesteaders seek out an agrarian lifestyle for a laundry list of reasons and come from a multitude of backgrounds. Within this growing segment of the population going “back to the land” are more than a few baby-boomers.

Beginning to homestead as a middle-aged person has its unique set of challenges, and joys. No one knows this better than Leigh Tate, who along with her husband Daniel, decided to begin homesteading as empty-nesters. At the age when most couples are looking to down-size and move into a low-maintenance condo allowing for more leisure activities, the Tates were looking for land, livestock, and a life that would require more of them physically, mentally, and at times, emotionally.

Sugar ist2_4782966-sugar-vs-sweetenerWe hear it everyday. Sugar is bad for you! But is it really? How do we know? Just because a bunch of advertisers and talking head, corporate doctors tell us that? While it is important to eat all things in moderation, the truth of the matter is we have once again been duped into believing something that is simply not true.

Host: Noreen “The Homestead Honey Hour”

Butter butter-vs-margarine-quoteOn the next installment of the Homestead Honey Hour, Join Noreen as she presents the case of Butter Vs. Margarine. For hundreds of years, humans consumed butter fat, lard and natural forms of fat and oil from animal sources. It was not until the margarine was introduced into the food system that we were told that the latter was bad for us and caused hardening of the arteries and heart disease. Well, what you have been told and what is true are very different stories. Continue reading The Case of Butter vs. Margarine

Realistic Homesteading Expectations and Aspirations!

Are Your Homesteading Expectations and Aspirations Realistic?
Host: Renee “The Homestead Honey Hour

RealisticAsk anyone who has kept a homesteading blog or Youtube channel over the last five years – myself included — and they will tell you there’s a resurgence happening of folks wanting to get “back to the land”, much as there was in the 1970’s. Becoming more self-reliant and sustainable is an aspiration shared by many. Their reasons are many: Concerns over the economy, food security and availability, wanting to raise children in a healthier environment, seeking to be closer to nature, wanting to eat meat raised humanely and grow organic produce, a desire for a slower-paced life, wanting to live off grid without restrictions, zoning, or other legalities, concerns over GMO’s, chemicals, antibiotics, and/or hormones in the food supply, seeking privacy and seclusion, and a Continue reading Realistic Homesteading Expectations and Aspirations!

A Giant Appears and Don’t Lose Focus!

A Giant Appears and Don’t Lose Focus!

Giant downloadWith the excitement of two stories I have before me I’ve decided to put them together starting off with “A Giant Appears” followed by “Don’t Lose Focus“. I have no doubts both will peak your interest.

“A Giant Appears” In confinement there are certain creatures whose growth are determined by the space allowed in its habitat. Giants will reach a certain size and for survival purposes the growth of the beast will cease or it finds a way out. Fortunately for those that know and have grown to love this giant I write about, it is refusing to be contained and has found an escape. Continue reading A Giant Appears and Don’t Lose Focus!

Gluten Intolerance – GMO Connection

The Gluten Intolerance – GMO Connection
Host: Noreen “The Homestead Honey Hour”

Gluten intolerance_au_gluten_21Did you ever stop to wonder why it seems that so many people are diagnosed with gluten intolerance? I cannot think of a time in recent history when so many people seem to have either been formally diagnosed or self diagnosed as being “Gluten Intolerant”. It may be that we see gluten free products all over the marketplace. It may be that many of the labels you see boast that the contents are “gluten free”. But did you ever wonder why this seems to be so rampant? Continue reading Gluten Intolerance – GMO Connection
