Preppers Versus HomesteaderPrepper or Homesteader? Is there a difference between them? Is one better than the other? Does it matter? Can you be both? In my opinion, the answer to all these questions is a resounding, “Yes!” Let’s dive into the nuances between a prepper and a homesteader on “The Homestead Honey Hour“. We’ll discuss what separates the prepper from the homesteader as well as what makes us the same. I’ll explain why leaning towards a homesteading mindset has its distinct advantages over that of a prepper. See how changing your approach from one of prepping to one of homesteading can not only get you off the endless, prepping treadmill, but move you into an even better position of self-reliance than just prepping alone. Sometimes, this change involves something subtle but significant towards long-term survival and/or self-reliance. For example, a prepper might have a vacuum-sealed can of heirloom seeds stashed away that he ordered off the internet. The homesteader also has a stash of heirloom seeds stored- but they’re likely seeds saved from a previous harvest. So, both prepper and homesteader have seeds put away. Both may garden already. But the homesteader has taken it a step further in saving seeds he has chosen and grown himself, has had success with already, knows he likes, and has removed himself from being dependent on an outside source for seeds each season. Of course, let’s not throw out the baby with the bath water: Prepping practices can be of benefit to the homesteader too, which we’ll also discuss too often the homesteader is reluctant to embrace prepping and this is a mistake IMHO and I’ll tell you why. So tune in to the HHH show to discuss this intriguing, (maybe a bit controversial?) topic of prepping versus homesteading and add your input.
