On today’s podcast episode I’m joined by Cindy Patterson. Cindy and her family live on a 700 acre farm/homestead in Saskatchewan Canada and are doing a little bit of everything to be as self sufficient as they can be.
Cindy and I discuss:
The livestock they are raising; cattle, a milk cow, goats, rabbits, quail and chickens.
Using nature to provide for their homestead by hunting, foraging, and trapping.
Gardening vegetables and herbs.
Different methods of food preservation
Other homesteading skills such as soap making, sewing, knitting, making herbal medicine and homemade household cleaning products.
Teaching her children homesteading skills.
Community building and sharing with others the homesteading lifestyle.
