On today’s podcast episode I have a conversation with Steve Dinicol, a homesteader on 133 acres in British Columbia Canada. Steve and his wife work full time jobs and still manage to operate and expand their homestead although expand too quickly at times as Steve will confess.
Steve and I discuss:
What led him down the homesteading path
Raising chickens for eggs and meat
Gardening in a northern climate
Foraging for mushrooms
His newly planted fruit tree orchard and berry bushes
Future plans for their homestead like bees, goats, rabbits, and chicken expansion
Advice for beginner homesteaders
