Group Description

"Do your needs keep your nose to the grindstone; feel you are captive to a 9 to 5 lifestyle, or you on a treadmill where there is no escape? Is your dream a life without bosses, by growing or making your necessities? Would living on a homestead like pioneers interest you? Have you wondered if you could live totally self-sufficient? Then join us as we work to get back to basics, whether you live in the city, country, or backwoods and enjoy using your own products "picked from YOUR garden or orchard". We will share ways to increase your production; whether you use the OLD ways, {horses, mules or oxen} or modern conveniences. Please share ideas or methods of making your life as self-sufficient as possible if it involves: gardening, hobby farming; farmers markets; alternative shelter {log cabin or home building} and energy; furniture building; Food Storage {Cooking, preserving, canning, butchering, short & long-term storing}; hunting; {bow or gun}; fishing; livestock production {dairy and beef cattle, beekeeping, pigs, poultry [chickens, Guinea fowl, turkeys, ducks, geese, upland birds] sheep, goats, horses, mules, draft animals {horses and oxen}, alpacas, llamas}; self-reliance; self-sufficiency then we can discuss it.
