Choosing to live our lives as homesteaders forced us to learn some new skills. It was one thing to read how to care for chickens, but until you actually are holding that little life in your hands, none of it is REAL to you. Until it comes time to butcher and process an animal, you just don’t realize what all goes into the process.
Homesteading has a way of teaching us some lessons that we never thought about. And they are good lessons. Deep, down into our hearts, personal lessons, that will carry us through this journey and make us the best homesteaders we could be.
