Welcome to Homesteading Stewards. For many years, we have been gardening, raising chickens, canning, etc. We originally did all this living in a small Alabama town, but a little over seven years ago we were able to move to a piece of property in the country. We set out to make this move over 8 years ago and have been working steadily towards the goal. It required giving up a lot, including our house and many things in it.
Our decision to simplify our lives was met with everything from disbelief and disdain to support and envy. Sometimes you have to sacrifice now to get where you’re going, and that is why we chose to do something that appears radical to most. It was not without apprehension, but it was with thankfulness to God that we forged ahead. We have accomplished a lot, but we have more to do and a lot to learn as we build and grow our homestead. We want to share this adventure in hopes of encouraging or inspiring others and to have the opportunity to learn from their experiences.
If you’d like to know more about our journey to this adventure, visit our History page. As we grow our homestead, we will be adding pages and information, as well as regular updates on our blog page. We will also add links and pass on sources of information as we come across them. Please visit often and let us hear from you.
