Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-sufficiency. It is characterized by subsistence agriculture, home preservation of food, and may also involve the small scale production of textiles, clothing, and craftwork for household use or sale. Pursued in different ways around the world—and in different historical eras—homesteading is generally differentiated from rural village or commune living by isolation (either socially or physically) of the homestead. Use of the term in the United States dates back to the Homestead Act (1862) and before.

For the past two years my wife and I have been planning our homestead on the land we purchased in the mountains of middle Tennessee. My blog tells you each step of the way and the various obstacles we had to overcome. If we can do it, so can you!
In creating this blog I was inspired by my wife Cheri who started her own blog with a different perspective. Feel free to visit her site Here
