The term “homesteading” can mean so many different things to so many different people. From ranchers in the west to peanut farmers in the south the term homesteading dates back to the Homestead Act (1862) and before.
In today’s modern world, it really means taking back the land and learning to live off of it. Urban homesteaders in the city, backyard homesteaders in the suburbs and country homesteaders it is a movement that is growing by thousands every day.
Homesteading is really a new lifestyle of self-sufficiency.
Turning away from our fast-food lifestyle many have embraced the art of raising chicken, gardening and taking care of the day-to-day needs of our families without relying on the grocery store food chain.
