Join Ann Accetta-Scott, author of The Farm Girl's Guide to Preserving the Harvest, curator of https://www.afarmgirlinthemaking.com, and encourager to those who seek to live a simple homesteading life. Each week brings forth seasonally based topics ranging from growing and raising your food, preserving the harvest, cooking from scratch, animal husbandry, establishing a homestead, living a chemical free and holistic life, and the emotions behind this blessed journey.
The goal for many women, especially homesteading women, is to become a full-time homesteading housewife, or homesteading homemaker. However, in this day and age many homesteading women do not have this opportunity. Instead you will find many of us balancing home, children, and property responsibilities with a full-time job.
The dream to solely manage the property, family, and home is within reach. We as modern homesteading homemakers need to learn how to achieve this goal. How is it possible for us to do it all? Even I maintain a full time job while running the homestead.
In this episode I'll talk to you about balancing career, family, and homestead responsibilities without feeling inadequate when we do not get ALL-THE-THINGS done.
Make sure to read my article, The Homesteading Housewife. If this podcast resonates with you or someone you know, please share it. No-one should ever feel inadequate in the roles of being a homemaker.
Preserving the harvest is the goal for every homesteaders and garden enthusiast. The problem is, many do do not know where to start. In this episode we use my book, The Farm Girl's Guide to Preserving the Harvest, as a foundation for all who preserve, or seek to preserve, food at home. I talk about the many preserving methods available, and the reason why many are hesitant to start.
Once you get past the fear, you will be on the journey to truly owning your food source!
Touching base with me with this unexpected podcast. A quick check-in on how we are managing the homestead, and ourselves, during this pandemic. But more importantly, how YOU can help others get through this time without having a platform. We entered this life to seek food ownership and a simpler way of living. Now it's time to encourage others to do the same. #teachdontpreach
What better way to launch a Simple Homesteading Life than to introduce myself, my family and my homestead to you! Learn how it all began, what it took to get here, and what's coming up next! Living a homesteading life takes work, dedication, successes, as well as, failures. It's through the grace of forgiving ourselves for the setbacks which makes the average homesteader a phenomenal one. Hopefully, through podcast I can encourage you to stay encouraged and gain the strength to encourage others to living this simple homesteading life.
