Why a Self Sufficient Homestead?

Try to picture this scene. It is morning; you are sitting in your favorite chair. From your window you look out over your land, and you marvel at the beauty of the first hard frost lit up by the rising sun. Unlike many people you have known, possibly including yourself a few years ago, the onset of winter prompts no sense of foreboding in your heart. The source of your contentment is contained in the woodshed bulging with cord after cord of neatly stacked seasoned firewood. The source of your contentment is contained in your pantry where row upon row of neatly labeled jars contain the bounty of the year’s harvest. The source of your contentment is the security that you have built into every aspect of your life. It was not easy and it did not happen overnight, but the abilities that you developed getting to the place you are on this morning, gives you confidence that you and your family will remain secure, regardless of what happens out there in a troubled world.
