Building A Homestead, One New Thing At A Time

On today’s podcast my guest is Heather Eby. Heather and her family have a ten acre homestead in Kansas and they are building their homestead by adding one new thing at a time. Heather is a wonderful story teller and blogger with a real passion for homesteading.


Heather and I discuss:

  • Why she became a homesteader.
  • The slow progress of her homestead rather than trying to do too many new things at once.
  • The variety of livestock on her homestead: chickens, ducks, sheep, goats, and dairy cows.
  • Some great predator stories: snakes, foxes and coyotes.
  • A walk through her garden. What she’s growing and the layout.
  • Her one tree orchard. 🙂
  • Some thoughts on future plans for her homestead.
