Thank you for your interest in The Prairie Homestead. I greatly appreciate feedback from my readers!

If you are a company interested in advertising, I occasionally work with high-quality companies in my niche. Please send me a request for my current rates.

If you are interested in submitting a guest post, I would be more than happy to discuss your ideas and send you my guest posting guidelines. I DO NOT accept guest posts from companies or freelance writers. However, if you are a fellow blogger or homesteader and would like to submit a post, I am happy to consider your idea.


Read through the FAQs to see if your question is answered there. If not, you’ll find my email address at the bottom of this page.


Due to the volume of email that I receive (and running a homestead and being a mom), please understand that although I read each email, I  cannot answer every single one. 


Q:Where exactly do you live?

A: I reside in the southern portion of Wyoming. Because of security reasons, I prefer not to give any more details than that.

Q: Can I come tour your homestead?

A: Probably not. Our home and mini-farm are still a work-in-progress. The property was a fixer-upper when we purchased it and we are still in the thick of major projects. Because of that, it’s usually in a less-than-tour-worthy state. However, if you are interesting in learning more about our particular homestead, you can read more on this page and check out this photo tour.

Q: Where do I find your recipe for _______?

A: All of the recipes I’ve published on The Prairie Homestead can be easily referenced on the Recipes page.

Q. Where is your post about ______?

A: If you are having trouble locating a post, try using the search bar which is at the top of the page in the header.

Q: What kind of goat/chicken/cow/pig/fruit tree/vegetable/garden/compost pile would be best for my homestead?

A: It really depends on your location, situation, and what you are hoping to achieve from the homesteading process. I don’t have all the answers when it comes to broad questions like this, so I highly recommend spending some time researching the web and your local library. Ask other farmers or homesteaders in your area for their best advice too. A good starter book that covers a broad range of homesteading topics is The Backyard Homestead by Carleen Madigan.

Q: Can you give me some advice on how to naturally treat my health problem?

A: Because I am not a medical professional, I cannot legally dispense medical advice. I encourage you to seek out a knowledgeable holistic practitioner in your area. If you are looking for a specific essential oil remedy, you might enjoy this reference page.

Q: How do I get started blogging? Can you tell me what I should write about? Can you look at my blog and give me some advice?

A: I’ve found blogging to be incredibly rewarding, but also a massive amount of hard work. Unfortunately, due to time restrictions, I cannot give blog consultations. However, this post will give you all my recommendations for software and my best tips for being a successful blogger, or you may enjoy my 6-week Blogger Blueprint eCourse.

Q: Do you accept paid-text links?

A. No

Q: How do I get the free eBook?

A: After you subscribe and confirm your subscription, you will immediately receive an automated email with the download link (you must have Adobe Acrobat reader on your computer in order to view the eBook). If you can’t find it, please thoroughly check your spam/junk mail folders. If it’s not there, send an email to: info (at) theprairiehomestead (d0t) com and I will send you a copy.

Q: Why can’t I comment on your older posts?

A: Unfortunately, I had to close commenting capabilities on my older posts since the spam comments were getting out of hand. I figure folks would rather me spend my time writing new content, rather than moderating the crazy spammers.

Q: What happened to the Homestead Barn Hop?

A: After 2+ years of doing the Hop every week, I decided to discontinue it to focus on other content. You can still find old Barn Hop archives by using the search bar.
