If you’re used to buying your groceries at the supermarkets, and/or have never raised animals or had a garden, trying to get started can certainly feel overwhelming. Why not get started, but just start small? Trying to do too much too quickly can be a recipe for burnout and frustration.
Starting small will not only get you on the path to providing for your family, but it will teach you a lot. As your confidence grows and time goes by, you can implement another activity on your homestead (or in your backyard).
