If kneading dough and smelling fresh baked bread smothered in butter or homemade jam is your idea of a gourmet dessert... you might be a homesteader.
If the idea of squeezing the mammary of an animal to provide a fine nutritious drink for your family excites you...you might be a homesteader!
If harvesting the fruit of your own labor and preserving the surplus takes your breath away ... you might be a homesteader.
Whether you are new to homesteading, striving to have a self-sufficient lifestyle, or you are living the life of providing as much as possible on your own homestead, you have come to the right place.
While there is tons of information online about skills for the homestead, there is nothing like gathering with like-minded people to learn from each other, to share our experiences and to do a little bartering.
We meet the 4th Thursday of every month in McDonald County, Mo. at the New Bethel School (a restored one-room schoolhouse) Each month we have a short workshop, fellowship, and snacks.
