Have you ever dreamt of starting a farm or homesteading? Do you love foraging for wild edibles? Is your perfect afternoon spent drifting downriver, fishing for that nights dinner? Or do love to spend a crisp fall morning hunting for wild game to share with your family? Or perhaps you spend all your free time digging in your garden, collecting herbs, vegetables, and fruits to enjoy. Homesteady is a show that focuses on living a more sustainable life. We talk about all the ways a modern Homesteader can put food on the table, from the fields, streams, gardens and woodlands. Our roads may be rocky, but with the right skills and knowledge we can make Homesteady.

     WANT TO MAKE MONEY HOMESTEADING?
    The Pioneer Pro Program is a new program I am excited to announce here at Homesteady! You get access to the pioneer library, invited to all the interviews we have and all the bonus content pioneers get, AND it’s also bundled with the Make Money Homesteading course! This is a course that I designed to help you take the little baby steps it takes to go from wanting to make money from your homestead to actually having a product and the infrastructure in place to sell that product!

    MOST farmers don't make enough money from their efforts to live off their earnings. 
    It's a sad but true statement.
    An article written last year on the usda website stated that 96% of farm households get some income from off-farm sources and on average that off-farm income was 82 of their total income.
    Yep. Farming for a living is hard.
    And yet many of us want the life of a farmer...
    So, can it be done? Can we make a living... living the life we want, farming full time? YES.
    Jordan and his wife Laura figured out how to do this starting a regenerative multi-species pasture-based farm from scratch, both of them coming out of military jobs!
    How? He shares their story in the latest episode of our podcast!
    Jordan didn't exactly grow up farming.
    "I did not grow up on a farm per se. I grew up on what now would now be called a homestead. We had egg laying chickens, a few pigs, and a herd of dairy goats...

    SCARY REASONS WHY You Should MAKE Your Own Soap - And How!

    SCARY REASONS WHY You Should MAKE Your Own Soap - And How!

    I was having an embarrassing issue. Using deodorant was irritating my skin, and so I went looking for a more "natural" solution.
    My search led me to Laurel Mountain Soaps.
    Tim and Jocelyn started making soap because their baby girl was getting severe diaper rashes.
    The skin products they were buying were irritating their daughters skin to the point of blisters, and they decided if no one made a natural product that worked for their baby girl, they would just do it themselves.
    They started experimenting with goat milk soap, and saw it work wonders on their daughters skin condition.
    Years later they run a business making TRULY NATURAL goat milk soap that not only cleans your body, but makes you FEEL better too!
    In this episode Tim and Jocelyn teach us WHY GOAT MILK SOAP IS the BEST SOAP for your body, and how you can make your own!
    If you can't make your own soap you can buy some incredible stuff from Tim and Jocelyn!

Relatable and Practical

We are soaking up all the education we can as we prepare to fulfill our hopes of hobby farming/homesteading. This family has been so relatable and helpful!

The best

This is the best I learn so much every time

The best show!

This is my absolute FAVORITE podcast. Ive shared it with everyone I know.
However, I really miss the old intro music/riff that you used to have in the beginning of your episodes. There was something familiar and comforting about it after awhile🤣 You should totally bring it back!
