Homestead Barn Hop #50

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 50th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

Wow! 50 Barn Hops- can you believe it? It seems like we started just yesterday. What a fun ride it’s been, I don’t know about you, but I’ve learned a lot. :)

This Monday is a BIG day for The Prairie Homestead!

6 a.m. MST marks the beginning of the official launch day for my brand spankin’ new eBook: Your Custom Homestead! Visit the website for all the details– including discount codes and a way for you to snag a FREE copy!

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.

**Note regarding New Life on a Homestead** Kendra’s blog was hit hard by some nasty hackers. She is still struggling to get things back to normal. But, she’ll be back as soon as possible, so don’t give up on her!

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.

    New to your blog, but loving it! Husband and I are back on five acres after a four-year stint in town, and ready to take on a new project or two. We brought home our senior citizen equine the week after we moved in, and now, a year and a half later, we are preparing to start up our laying flock of chickens again. a couple dairy goats are on my weish list, but one step at a time! now for plans to convert a stall in the barn to a chicken coop…good times!

    Thanks so much for hosting.

    I shared information about how BPA-free may not be so great after all and a delicious recipe for pastured pork chops that is really easy and quick.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for hosting! And happy 50th blog hop! 😉 I found some great posts on making a worm compost bin which is my next garden project for our new (rental) house with a massive yard!
    I shared a recipe for Blueberry Breakfast Quinoa. Super easy to make and full of protein :)

      It’s a link-up where bloggers can share their blog posts on topics related to homesteading. Simple write up a post, then link it to the linky (link at the bottom). It helps to bring traffic to your blog as well. :)
