HOW TO FIND NEW INDEPENDENCE ON THE LAND.
Modern Homesteaders are escaping the big cities and also many the pressures of big-time commercial agriculture. All are seeking, and many are finding, the independence that comes from raising one's own food and family on a few acres. One hundred acres can be a homestead or one-half acre can be. Locate a homestead. Work with the soil. Raise your own vegetables, grains, fruits and berries. Care for livestock. Learn what to expect to put into and get out of rabbits, chickens, pigs, milk cows, beef cattle and other homestead animals. Help yourself to nature's stores. A woodlot will provide you with fuel for your woodstove and fireplace, poles and lumber for your buildings, food for your cabinets, recreation for your family. Use independent technologies. The wind, water and sun offer every homesteader free energy. Make some money. You can supplement your income easily with fruits from your homestead; some even make their entire living on a homestead. Wonderful for Families. Find a New Way of Life and Live It!
