It is time the truth about backyard homesteaders is out…and I’m going to come clean! Some of you think you know, but only the backyard homesteaders really know! Buckle up ya’ll I have 12 of them for you!
THE TRUTH ABOUT BACKYARD HOMESTEADERS
Truth #1 – Backyard homesteaders know how to use the space we are given. Sure we might not have acres…we might not even have a 1/4 acre. But we have learned to make the most of what we have; and every space is utilized.
Truth #2 – We love a good DIY. From making soap to building chicken coops from pallets. We love a do-it-yourself project.
Truth #3 – Many backyard homesteaders are trying to keep their homestead on the DL (down low folks). Some are in HOAs that don’t allow vegetable gardens, much less chickens and others have city ordinances working against them.Truth #4 – Not all of us want to live in the country some day. Some like the city or suburb life and just want to be as sustainable and self-reliant as they can, right where they are.
