There is an obvious trend of people leaving the city to take on homesteading. Many of them were not raised on a farm, including myself. How do we learn the farm ways and prepare ourselves for the work ahead?
We read all we can, and we watch YouTube videos. Asking the neighbors is sometimes helpful, sometimes not. Even though they might have animals they can be raised very conventional.
Learning through farm stories from our grandparents and great aunts might be the golden ticket to learning the sustainable ways of the past.
