Why we homestead on “The Homestead Honey Hour”

Homestead6-8-2400x300Why we homestead on The Homestead Honey Hour. Is it because we want to be more self-reliant? We want a better quality life for our family? We want to prepare for emergencies or because we want to be a more in-depth participant in the circle of life? We all have our reasons for storing water, putting in gardens, stocking our pantries and raising livestock. And there are as many reasons as there are people who act on them.
For me personally..I have gone through a shift in my life..I want to live a more traditional life. Why? Because for me, simpler is better, healthier and makes me happier. But also because I want to help bring back the knowledge of a simpler time..when quilts were not just blankets for warmth but works of art. When canning made sense because it was economical and made you feel good because you had food put by for winter! When milking a goat and drinking it raw and chilled was a healthy practice..not a criminal offense. I want to be a part of bringing BACK a way of life that makes sense. This is why we homestead. Why do you? Please call in and share what makes you happy about your life choices today.

First-hand accounts about the life of a true homesteader!

Backwoods HomeThere 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 way of life. And it really is. But there is a great deal of work involved, lots of back-breaking labor. In the summer time, it’s often sunup to sundown… so much to do. And the animals and gardens don’t stop eating and growing just because you get tired. As the saying goes, “the show must go on”. So what is it really like on a day to day basis?

Misty277x180To get some first-hand accounts about the life of a true homesteader, on this episode of Preparing To Provide I have a very special guest for this show. If you’re familiar with YouTube, this lady is a legend. She does it all. If it has to do with homesteading, she does it, and does it well. Cooking on a woodstove, splitting firewood, gardening and canning, raising and processing animals, she and her family do all of the things that you’d consider to be part of the true homesteading life. From the great state of Tennessee, I’ll be talking with Misty, also known as Misty Prepper to her Facebook friends. If you haven’t seen her YouTube videos, this is the link: http://www.youtube.com/user/mmlrc6atgmailcom Check her out, she’s the real deal. I hope you’ll join Misty and me for some great conversation as we talk about exactly what it means to live the life of a homesteader.
