Homestead Barn Hop #47

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 47th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

I so enjoy visiting your homesteads each and every Monday. Thank you to everyone who has made it a success so far! Last week we had a spectacular turn-out with well over 200 entries!

This week, I have an exciting announcement to share regarding one of The Prairie Homestead’s sponsorsHomestead Drying Racks. You’ve heard me talk about how much I love these drying racks in the past. And the icing on the cake is that this business is a small, family-owned operation, which is the kind I love to support the most!

Daniel and Abby, the original owners and builders of Homestead Drying Racks are passing the torch to a brand new homesteading family- Mark and Erin Harrison. The craftsmanship and quality are staying the same, but this switch DOES mean a reduced waiting time when you order a rack. And, the other part of this exciting news is that Daniel and Abby will now be selling a brand new product: The Grampa Jakes Campfire Cooker. Also, Daniel and Abby’s blog, Forgotten Way Farms, has moved to a new address. So, be sure to update your links.

And of course, I can’t forget to mention the spectacular giveaway that is happening right now at the Forgotten Way Farms blog. There are six different prizes (a combined value of over $300) and six chances to win!

Alrighty, now down to the business of this week’s hop.

This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, along with three other fantastic homesteading gals:

Amy from Homestead Revival, Kendra from New Life on a Homestead, and Kelly from The Morris Tribe.

We encourage you to stop by every Monday and share your latest homesteading posts with us. From cooking to animals to gardening, we want to hear what’s been happening at your homestead this week!

Some Simple Guidelines:

1. Remember to provide a link back to the Homestead Barn Hop in the post that you share. Feel free to grab the banner at the top of this post, if you would like, and use it to link back to us!

2. Please link to a specific post, not your blog’s main page.

3. If you don’t have a blog, share your latest homestead updates in a comment on this post!

4. We, the hosts of the Barn Hop, reserve the right to remove any link that we deem inappropriate or offensive. We will err on the side of caution.
