Small Homestead is about our journey to become more self sufficient. We are a fairly modern couple in our fifties who have been used to having all of those little things that most of us take for granted. R and I have both gone through separate financial crises that have changed our lives. We are now living on a real income that is well below the poverty level and enjoying it.
By being frugal and becoming as self sufficient as we can, we are enjoying life and eating well. We are healthier and much less stressed than we were when we were working in corporate America. R grew up on this small farm in a family that grew most of their own food as well as tobacco so he is well prepared for this endeavor. I grew up in the country and we ‘played’ at homesteading so this has been truly a learning experience for me.
