For urban and country dwellers alike, a quarter acre is all the space you need to farm all the food you need! Homesteading allows you to feed your family healthy meals harvested right from your own backyard while also reducing your environmental footprint.
Live off the land you have. Plant a successful and sustainable farm-on a quarter acre to a full acre and beyond-where you can raise your own fruits, vegetables, chickens, bees, milk-bearing animals, and more. Local, organic food is attainable to you at a fraction of the cost with your own self-contained operation.

Learn everything you need to know to maximize your space, yield, and harvest.
It's not glamorous, but it is rewarding, so prepare to get a little dirt under your fingernails and see what kind of gardening and farming magic you-and your land!-are capable of.
