Best Animals to Hunt During SHTFAs with most topics we have a lot of what if’s? Food storage with preppers is a big deal and we think we have enough. We prepare for so long the amount we think we’ll need, but alas we also lack discipline to ration food. Some of us do not have a backup plan to get food in case we do run out. For this reason, we talk about what Continue reading Best Animals to Hunt During SHTF

A True Homesteader!

A True Homesteader!
Host: Bobby “MHP Gardner

A True HomesteaderThere is a lot of interest in being self-sufficient these days. People are looking for information on how to grow and store their own food, provide their own meats, go off-grid with solar setups… get out of the system so to speak. We see a lot of these things in videos and on TV, and it all looks so cool. It seems like such an enjoyable Continue reading A True Homesteader!

Survival Canines

Survival Canines
James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio in player below!

Survival CaninesIts funny but out of the estimated 8.7 million species on this planet we really have only have one that likes us. Lets be honest. Some people will say they keep birds and other food items as pets but in most cases they are kept in cages. Even cats are arguable pets at best. They don’t particularly like humans and if they were bigger they would eat you. They would dig their claws into you and Continue reading Survival Canines

Highlander “Survival & Tech Preps

Ethical Hunting during shtfThe subject of food storage is a big thing with preppers and those that want to start prepping.

We cannot truly rely on our stored food alone Continue reading Ethical Hunting during shtf

Homesteading! Anything I Can Do…You Can Do

Homesteading! Anything I Can Do…You Can Do

Originally posted on APN

HomesteadingI want to write a post on who can homestead. We live in times where even using the word homestead sounds old fashioned or confusing. Perhaps many reflect upon the Little House on the Prairie notion, and shake their heads saying no way. Others may wonder how homesteading can benefit one who is a prepper.

Before getting to into my thoughts, I better introduce myself. In blog world I am known as Humble Wife, and to be honest with you, Continue reading Homesteading! Anything I Can Do…You Can Do

Land Stewardship!

Real land stewardship with Will Harris.
Host: Nich & Don “We Grow Ours

land will_bioThis week on the We Grow Ours show, Nick and Don have a special guest on the show. Will Harris of White Oak Patures. Will Harris is a true steward of the land and has a farm that has come full circle in the 150 years that they have been farming. Will has taken the farm back to its roots and is 100% organic! Check out White Oaks story Here!

land“The transition started in 1995 when Will Harris III made the conscious decision to return to a production system on his land that is better for the environment, for our animals, and for the people who eat these meats. He reinstituted the multi-species rotational grazing practices of his forefathers, and he built abattoirs on the farm to slaughter our animals.  Continue reading Land Stewardship!

Livestock integration!

Livestock integration!
Host: Nick & Don “We Grow Ours

Livestock cowThis week on the We Grow Ours show Nick and Don will be covering the much anticipated topic of “livestock integration.” The principle is simple, the process isn’t always so. One look at nature and you’ll see there are not any rows of corn, wheat or other mono crops. There are no segregated areas for each individual animal species.

Nature is a flowing self-regulating organism. Yes it is made of multiple animals and plants, and yes they have their conflicts, but as a whole, the system set in place works. Livestock integration is our way of trying to copy an existing system. The goal is to have a system that uses very little in-put to produce a LOT of food. It’s kind of a solar powered food producer!!

Morals of Prepping and A look back

Morals of Prepping and A look back
Host: Nick & Don “We Grow Ours

MoralsThis week we have some fun talking about our past shows, and discussing a few of the “morals” that surround prepping and especially processing your own food, or to be frank, killing animals. That is not the only moral dilemma some people face, yet it is sure a big one for many. As we look back and discuss our past shows we touch on this issue and how we feel about each subject along with what some others may think. Continue reading Morals of Prepping and A look back

Meat Rabbits for the Homestead

RabbitsMeat rabbits for the homestead. Beyond chickens, probably the “next best”, most productive animal for the homestead is the meat rabbit. Rabbits are inexpensive, easy-to-raise, prolific, quiet, and take a minimal amount of space. And, they produce the leanest meat of all domestic animals as well as usable pelts and incredibly-rich garden fertilizer.

Of course, many people are put off by the idea of eating what they consider a pet animal and can’t picture themselves being able to dispatch “those cute bunnies”. But the reality is, if times Rabbitsget tough(er) and you need a delicious protein source for your hungry family, you will quickly get over your apprehensions and be grateful you have a ready source of meat. (Quite frankly, 3 month old rabbits – which is prime butchering age — aren’t nearly as cute and cuddly as what you are imagining.)

A breeding trio of rabbits, that is, two females and one male, could easily produce 42 babies a year. If these youngsters are butchered at 3-4 pounds, this translates into approximately 150 pounds of meat per year.

Meat RabbitThere are many breeds of domestic rabbits but for many meat producers the New Zealand white and Californian are two of the more popular. Fryers, bakers, roasters, and stewers are the names given to meat rabbits. Their age and weight will determine their title. Want to learn more? Then tune in this Thursday, September 12, to the Homestead Honey Hour where we will dive into this subject to help you get started raising rabbits!

Animals and seeds are IMPORTANT to us all!

homestead honey 125The Homestead Honey Hour with TheMrsVolfie! “show audio attached”

Recently it has come to my attention that a new law proposed by the European Commission would make it illegal to “grow, reproduce or trade” any vegetable seeds that have not been “tested, approved and accepted” by a new EU bureaucracy named the “EU Plant Variety Agency.”

After watching Mark Bakers struggles to save his pigs and Montana Jones in Canada lost her rare breed Shropshire sheep…they were all KILLED even the pregnant Ewes. The CFIA claimed three years ago that a ewe she sold years further back had scrapie. No signs, no symptoms, for a disease that poses no harm to humans – but they killed her ewes anyway. After death, tests came back negative as Montana knew they would. Continue reading Animals and seeds are IMPORTANT to us all!
