The Adventure Begins!
For years now I have been reading and learning as many homesteading skills as I can find. I have made plans and had many false starts. I even moved my family to a beautiful piece of land in upstate SC, in the foothills. Recently my work responsibilities have shifted and I am now part of a large team and I am not overburdened. I now have time in the evenings.
I made the decision to start creating the homestead infrastructure and get the ball rolling. I now have the beginnings of a use plan for the property, and some large range goals for what to do.
I plan to document the plans, processes, successes and failures along the way in the hopes that our efforts will inspire, educate and empower others to follow their dreams of a homestead lifestyle.
To me, the homestead lifestyle starts with a mindset that you want to be more self-sufficient, eat healthier food, and learn self-reliance skills.
Thanks for sharing our adventures, and help us create a community to share ideas, support and encouragement.
