The Homestead Survival


The Homestead Survival is published by two female friends, Pat and Christina who are two normal housewives of homesteading families who live on opposite sides of the United States. Pat lives in the Midwest and Christina lives in the  Pacific Northwest  but share the same goal… helping others as we learn along our journey of creating an ever changing self sufficient homestead. We learn from first hand experience and internet knowledge from many different sources.

We share with you what we’ve learned along the way.

Big business companies would prefer for people to forget how to make items ourselves and be dependent on buying those items from them. We are working hard to keep self sufficiency knowledge alive and being passed to the next generation.

about us

Homesteading today means a back to the land movement, learning real skills that are becoming lost art forms, recognizing what natures offers, creating food storage through different food preservation methods, growing your own food through organic gardening and fruit and nut orchards, learning how to work with the land instead of against it, embracing hard work and in the end gaining a strong sense of self. Deep satisfaction and independence is earned by the people willing to devote themselves to it’s pursuit.

Many homesteaders feel that their lifestyle is healthier and more rewarding than more conventional consumerism driven patterns of living.

A homesteader can live in urban, suburban or rural areas: each area presents it’s own set of challenges of how to use the amount of land available to the best of it’s ability. Homesteading is a mindset that can be practiced anywhere by anyone who wants to embrace the old ways, maybe even improve them. A growing public concern about air and water pollution has empowered people to seek alternative renewable sources of energy as a way to become independent from public utilities. Geothermal, Wind, Solar (sun), Hydro (water), biomass (wood) are just a few methods that are used.

We believe inspiring readers about homesteading, self sufficiency and emergency preparedness is important in creating a change in the world that starts in a place we can control, on our own homesteads and within our families.

If you post a picture of a baked dish or do it yourself project but do not post the instructions how so other motivated people can tackle the project/recipe themselves…. then it is just bragging. We make it a point to encourage readers to jump in and frugally create their own after we post how.
