Many people think that beginning a farm or homestead requires you to have previous farming experience, but this isn’t necessarily true.  Even if you have never set foot on a farm yourself, it is possible to begin living the homesteading lifestyle.  In this episode, Jess shares how her lifelong dream of owning a farm became a reality, one step at a time.  We also delve into the topic of making money on a homestead.  Whether you have a goal of replacing your full-time income or of simply allowing your homestead to pay for itself, Jess has some really interesting entrepreneurial ideas!
In this episode, we cover:

Starting to live a homesteading lifestyle even without acreage
Nurturing a healthy food culture in your home
The connection between food and homesteading
Exciting upcoming developments for Roots & Refuge Farm
