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.

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!!

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
