Welcome to The Heritage Homestead
I’m Nichole Hall, owner of the The Heritage Homestead. Have you ever thought about homesteading and just didn’t know where to begin? If so, you’re in the right place. Consider me your personal guide to getting started. We’ve got everything from raising chickens to growing and preserving your own food. Whatever your goals, we are here to help!
Who is the Beginning Homesteader?
The beginning homesteader is someone who knows very little about self-sufficiency, but has a deep desire to live differently than our modern day culture. A slower paced life, more nutritious food, and an exercise routine that’s built into normal living.
You may be the family who has decided to move from the city to the country. Apartment living with potted plants & herbs on your balcony may be all you need. You may even live in a neighborhood with a fenced in backyard with a desire to raise your own chickens. We all have to start somewhere, so if you are starting out, then you are the beginning homesteader.
What is Homesteading & Self-Sufficiency?
As you start out, you’ll hear a lot of terms and definitions you may not be familiar with. These terms can mean different things to different people. Let’s start off with the definition of homesteading. For most, it means being self-sufficient.
However, being self-sufficient can mean anything from having your own garden to building a bunker and living off the grid. And don’t worry, if you aren’t yet sure what “living off the grid” means, we’ve put together a beginners guide for just for you! All in all, homesteading is simply living a more natural life. Don’t forget your guide!
What Homesteading & Self-Sufficiency Means to Us.
For us, homesteading & self-sufficiency means living off the land. We aren’t planning to build a bunker and loving the internet means going off the grid isn’t going to happen! Growing and preserving our own food, housing our own chickens, doing our own upgrades and living as chemically free as possible is what we love. We use as much as we can and waste as little as possible. But it doesn’t really matter what being self-sufficient looks like to us. All that matters is what it means to you.
What Does Homesteading & Self-Sufficiency Mean to You?
Give yourself some time to think about it. Do you picture a rolling meadow with a farmhouse at the end of a tree lined drive? Are potted plants & herbs on your patio all you need? You can be self-sufficient on as little as a quarter of an acre or on whatever you can afford. Wherever you are…you can begin right now!
The main aspects we focus on are chickens, gardening and canning. No matter where you decide to start just realize this is a process. We have created FREE material for you on each of these subjects. Just click on the icons below to get your free stuff!
