So what does it really mean? Be a Producer not a Consumer?
For us it means keeping life as simple as possible. It means living as close to the land and being as self-sufficient as we possibly can. It means knowing what we do today is building the foundation for our future, tomorrow.
How did we become a society of consumers?
Let’s take a trip back in history before the Industrial Revolution. Before that time men and women worked side by side living off the land. They worked together planting gardens, raising animals, making clothes and raising their families. Once the Industrial Revolution hit men were forced off their farms to work for a wage, leaving the woman at home to tend to the homestead.
