Homemaking, Homesteading, Hope
Micro-Homesteaders share how they got started and how you can, too.
Parker was raised on an industrial turkey farm, raising his own beef and tending to his parent’s farm between homeschool lessons and church activities. Sierra was raised in the suburbs, where the closest she came to a cow was the ground, plastic-wrapped meat at the grocery store.
When they got married and had children, they realized something – a homestead would help them teach their children a lot of what is missing in America today. Patience. Dedication. Hard work. Peace. Dirt under your fingernails is just as therapeutic as a spa day, even more so, when it’s yielding your own farm fresh eggs or produce.
That’s what The Learning Life is. A life spent learning the skills that have fallen to the wayside with the rise of industrial farming, online shopping and reliance on convenience. Not that any of those are bad. But they aren’t sustainable, either. So join us as we showcase the skills we’ve refined in our own backyard and teach you the steps toward homesteading, homemaking and hope.
