On today’s podcast I’m joined by Jen Sharpin from Jen Shares with us about her Journey from no homesteading experience living in Florida to a 15 acre homestead in South Carolina to a 45 acre  homestead in Virginia.


Jen and I discuss several topics like:

  • Her family’s bold jump into the homesteading lifestyle.
  • The unfortunate events that opened up her eyes to a lifestyle change.
  • Her motivations for sharing their homesteading journey on her blog.
  • The problems with today’s food systems.
  • The plans her family has to share their healthy food with others by operating a small commercial farm.
  • Advice for beginner homesteaders.




Jen was an awesome guest and she has a great blog with a lot of useful information.Check it out and let Jen know you appreciate all she is doing to help others along in their homesteading journey.


“This magical, marvelous food on our plate, this sustenance we absorb, has a story to tell. It has a journey. It leaves a footprint. It leaves a legacy. To eat with reckless abandon, without conscience, without knowledge; folks, this ain’t normal.”
