Your Custom Homestead eBook

Judging by a recent question I asked on the Prairie Homestead Facebook page, many of you are either brand new homesteaders, or wish that you were.

Let me tell you, that makes me SO excited!

I love hearing all of your stories about your current or future homesteads- you guys inspire me!

And that is exactly why I decided to write my very first eBook. You may have already heard me mention it on Facebook or Twitter, but the launch is rapidly approaching, so I wanted to give you a little sneak peek into the eBook beforehand.

Your Custom Homestead is a 79 page eBook that will be available in both .PDF and Kindle formats.

This digital book features a 21-day plan to jump start your homesteading dreams.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Create a homesteading binder.
  • Formulate a homestead mission statement and set goals.
  • Navigate around restrictive homeowner’s associations.
  • Embrace your current location, no matter how “unlikely” it may be.
  • Expand your knowledge base and acquire new skills.
  • Begin planning for homestead animals.
  • And much, much more!

Each day in the eBook is divided into three parts:

An Introduction to the Step: This ensures that we are on the same page and provides some helpful background information on the plan for the day.

Home(stead)Work: The part where you get to take action and apply the principles to your life.

A Peek into My Life: Personal ancedotes and stories explaining how I’ve implemented each step into my own life.

Regardless of whether you are a budding homesteading enthusiast, or seasoned veteran, Your Custom Homestead offers encouragement and organizational tips for homesteads of all shapes and sizes.

A little video introduction:

Your Custom Homestead launches February 20th, and will have a low, introductory price of $4.99. Plus, there will be multiple discount codes and even a way to snag a FREE copy on launch day, so stay tuned for details on that stuff.

There are more details available on the Your Custom Homestead website.(For all of you bloggers out there- there WILL be an affiliate program!)

To stay up-to-date on launch news AND for exclusive discount codes, you can also “like” the Your Custom Homestead Facebook page.

I am getting so incredibly excited to share this with you all! If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to leave them in the comments. :)

    I am so excited to hear about your book! My family has been slowly moving toward a homestead, sustainable lifestyle. I can hardly wait to have such a great resource that will help us keep moving in that direction! :)

      I will be setting up an account on Ejunkie where interested people can sign up (it’s free, of course).
      You’ll recieve a unique affiliate ID to use as a link anytime you mention the eBook on your blog, FB page, etc. (I will also be providing buttons and banners).
      Then, when anyone clicks through your link and makes a purchase, you will recieve a commission (probably 33% of the price). I’ll be getting the affiliate page set up next week, so there will be more info there. 😉

    OH, I made another batch of organic chicken broth/chicken. I’ve made gluten free bread using almond flour AND I’ve got homemade laundry powder 😉 :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

    So excited about this! We live in the BIG city, on a typical city lot, with a cement backyard. Our first step was to build a square foot garden on the CEMENT garage roof! Yes, cement garage. It didn’t do so well last year, but we are hoping for better things this year. Baby steps to be sure, but we still long for our “few acres in the country.” Some other things I want to try – making our own yogurt, and perhaps getting a chicken or two. Believe it or not, we can have them here. A big dream would be an aquaponic garden at some point. But that will have to wait for our few acres. In the meantime, it’s hard to know where to begin and overwhelming at the thought of having to learn it all, so I’m excited for your book!

    I can’t wait, I grew up on a farm and live in the city. Now I am trying to talk my wife how grew up in the city to move to a farm. Maybe your book will help with this task. You have such helpful information here for us all!

    So excited to read this! I put your photo with a link on my blog. My husband and I have been looking for some land out north of town where we live. We would love to have a homestead and are looking forward to reading your book to help us get started…no matter where we decide to be or stay. :o)

    I would LOVE to hear some suggestions about how to get around HOAs. Mine is super strict….I still have chickens even though I’m not allowed but I would LOVE to not have worry about them being discovered!!
