For folks wanting to homestead and do more things independently / self sufficiently, there is alot of work. But, it is so rewarding. In fact, I had a young millennial tour our farm last week looking at goats. She was just getting into it with her boyfriend. She shared with me how moving the whole journey is. She even shared that she cried when she planted her seed starts, now hardened, in her garden. The emotion even moved her. This lifestyle had that much impact on her life. I applauded her for her passion and focus on this belief system she has about her food.
What we tell folks wanting to live this life is to develop a rhythm about it. It makes things so much easier when there is a natural flow to what you do. And, do not take on everything at once. There are literally hundreds of things you can do and learn on your little urban or rural homestead. You could kill yourself trying to do it all.
Start small and grow your learning in one domain then expand into others over the years. Enjoy the journey!
