What Is Homesteading?

I figure our very first post might as well answer that looming question of: What is Homesteading?

It is a great question, and I have been asking myself this question a lot to try and really define it. But the truth is, the only question that really matters is: what is homesteading TO YOU?

If you are new to the Homesteading term then here is the official definition from Wikipedia which says: Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-sufficiency

For me, homesteading is a mindset, a DIY (do-it-yourself) way of life where we can rely on our selves and to live authentically THE WAY WE WANT. It is a journey of freedom to learn and grow. We want to raise our own meat, grow veggies and fruit, hunt, fish, help the environment, leave the suburbs, build a homestead from scratch, quit the rat race and work for ourselves. I will post more on our hopes and dreams for this journey but we just want to take charge of our lives and provide a happy, low stress and rural life for our children to grow up in.

Follow along on our crazy exciting journey, lots more to come!
