Homesteading from Scratch

Homesteading From Scratch is for people who want to do things
differently—the type of people who want to eat real food, grow herbs,
make cheese, raise baby animals, hunt mushrooms, pick blackberries,
'un'school their children, can jelly, ferment kraut, farm organically,
connect to nature, live intentionally, and more.

Guiding readers
from desire to full-blown off-the-grid living—and everything in
between—this book covers farming, animal husbandry, food preparation,
homeschooling, fiber arts, and even marketing. It provides inspiration
from other homesteaders, with operations from small to large, who have
made a go of it, outlining their successes and failures throughout the
process. It helps to democratize the homesteading movement, by providing
“ins” for nearly every level of dedication, from the container gardener
to full-time farmers. It provides the knowledge necessary to discover
homesteading as a movement and as a lifestyle.

Inspired by From Scratch
magazine, an online publication devoted to homesteading and intentional
living, this book provides readers with continued support and community
for information and resources online. This book serves as a reference,
as well as a cheerleader, for those who want a bit more control and
responsibility over where their food comes from, what they consume, and
how they live their lives.
