Is a Family Cow “Worth It”?

Is a Family Cow “Worth It”?
Host: Austin Martin “Homesteady Live“ Audio in player below!

Is a Family Cow “Worth It”?Owning a family cow is a huge responsibility. A recent guest on the Homesteady show (here) compared it to marriage. A cow requires daily care and attention. A family that wants to own a cow will need to be able to feed and water the cow every day, year round. Then, if the cow is in milk, every day (sometimes 2x per day) the cow needs milked. That milk then needs attended to, stored, and equipment washed. The chores associated with the family cow never stop. Continue reading Is a Family Cow “Worth It”?

Raising Meat Chickens

Raising Meat Chickens
Host: Austin Martin “Homesteady Live“ Audio in player below!

Should you raise meat chickens on your homestead?

Raising Meat ChickensChickens are commonly called the “Gateway Animal”, and so it makes sense that Chickens are a great way to get started with raising your own meat. But raising meat birds is not the same as raising egg laying chickens. When the goal of raising your chickens is to put meat in the freezer, you need to consider the breeds, feed, and equipment that you will need to get your birds from the pasture to the plate. Continue reading Raising Meat Chickens

10 Lightweight Items for Your Bug Out Bag

10 Lightweight Items for Your Bug Out Bag

10 Lightweight Items for Your Bug Out BagEvery prepper knows that a well-equipped bug out bag can mean the difference between life and death during a natural disaster or SHTF scenario. The tendency is to want to stuff as much equipment as you can into your bug out bag just in case you need it, but a bag that is too heavy can be detrimental even for a short trip. Experienced preppers recommend that Continue reading 10 Lightweight Items for Your Bug Out Bag

Maintenance of Supplies & Equipment

Maintenance of Supplies and Equipment
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Maintenance ep71-6Here in Canada, we experience a wide range of dangerous weather related emergencies. Some of these weather conditions will give us a bit of a heads up, such as the case with Hurricane Arthur. Some will be a complete surprise with only a moment’s notice at best as with a tornado. Others will have some advance warning in the form of a “possibility” like with the flooding in Saskatchewan. Continue reading Maintenance of Supplies & Equipment

Well-Appointed Prepper Homestead

Well-Appointed Prepper Homestead
Host: Renee “The Homestead Honey Hour

What you need . . . . as well as what’s just nice to have

HomesteadThe line between homesteading and prepping can be a blurry one. As a matter of course, prepping often leads to homesteading. After all, being able to provide for yourself and your family on a sustainable, renewable level moves a person ever closer to independence and self-reliance – the ultimate prepping! To this end, it’s important to have both a knowledge base and various skill sets. But just as important to success or failure on the homestead are the tools one has at their disposal. Some “stuff” is absolutely necessary. Other equipment, while making tasks more manageable and your life a whole lot easier, aren’t really necessary and can be purchased later on, as finances permit. Continue reading Well-Appointed Prepper Homestead

Colder days, ready your garden and your stores!

ready your garden for winterFrosty nights and cold days are just around the corner and approaching us fast. As with all seasons winter is no different when it comes to preparedness and for many it can be the most important season of all. Winter is that time for many of us that have not already started to begin our efforts to button up the homestead and be ready for the shorter and colder days that lie ahead.

Join Katzcradul on The Homestead Honey Hour as she talks about wrapping up the summer gardening and canning season. She’s planting ‘greens’, lettuces, spinach and kale every week, to have a never ending supply for the dinner table until the first winter frost. She’ll also talk about crops she leaves in the ground, even after the first snowfall. She’ll also be discussing what we need to do to put our garden to bed for the winter, in order to have it in tip-top shape for next spring’s planting. ready your garden for winter

Katz will also talk about the importance of taking stock of our equipment and supplies and replenishing where necessary…and not waiting until the last minute to do it. Although we ‘put the garden to bed’ for the winter, we should not be napping! Winter is the perfect time to catch up on all those odd jobs, that we find so hard to get to during the busy part of summer. She give a list of chores we should be working on during the ‘off season’. Join Katzcradul as she leads a lively discussion on The Homestead Honey Hour.

Do you have the equipment you need to survive?

CampingMany of you realize that a lot of emergency gear can be found at local hardware, camping, and department stores.  But do you really know how well that stuff is going to work when you really need it?
As you know by now, I spent last weekend at the provincial meet in Huntsville, Ontario.  For accommodations I decided to take the family camping for 3 nights at Arrowhead Provincial Park.  Not only was this an inexpensive way to accommodate a family of six, but was a great opportunity to test out some gear.  I had lots of stuff with me that I wanted to put through the paces and was impressed with some, and disappointed with others.  This week on The Prepared Canadian, I’ll share my findings with you on everyday equipment that you may be considering for your emergency gear.
Join me as I discuss camp stoves, kerosene lanterns, various battery operated lamps, and how I used an inverter connected to my car battery to supply power to an unserviced campsite.

Ebbs joins Mr. Smith, more on guns and archery!

Put bullet in gun, aim, and fire. Yep, you now know what I know. Actually I know just a bit more having grown up an avid hunter but much of this information, just a little over my head. For many in chat and many preppers as well this was a hot topic. Guns should be a part of anybody’s awareness program for self defense and putting a little meat on the table. What about archery? Well, last nights show should have been scheduled with a little more time allowing for that topic. With only ten minutes left in the show there was some discussion on archery and a couple of good questions fielded by the host and guest. We got a promise of another show coming soon devoted to archery. This I am looking forward to as I believe it also should be a part of any preppers knowledge and equipment. All in all some good information. Listen to this show in player below.
