You don’t need chickens clucking in the back yard to be a homesteader. It just takes a certain mindset to start the journey. There is no real set definition of what it means to be a homesteader either. Some people are driven by the idea of living like the pioneers and learning the skills of our forefathers. Other homesteaders seek isolation and prefer to live off the land while others enjoy a blend of modern convenience mixed with self reliance. Although there are many different types of homesteaders one thing everyone seems to have in common is having the courage to make a shift towards a less modern/conventional type of lifestyle one that makes them happy.
