The Modern Homesteading Podcast, Episode 88 – June 4, 2018 – When Are You Too Young or Old To Start Homesteading?
Question For Today’s Podcast Episode:
Tanya asks: I would love to hear your thoughts on starting a homestead in mid life. We are looking to homestead in the near future and we are a married couple in our mid 40s with a young son (4 yrs). People say it would be futile as we are too old for such a lifestyle. I think it could be an advantage in having the wisdom and forethought to homestead smart, not back-breaking hard, not break-the-bank hard.
