Homestead Barn Hop #75

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 75th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

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

Amy from Homestead Revival and Kendra from New Life on a Homestead.

Did you share any homesteading related posts on your blog this week? If so, we’d love to have you link up below! Even if you don’t have a blog, we always welcome your comments!

***Please note the rule changes below!!***

Some Simple Guidelines:

1. Please remember that the Homestead Barn Hop is meant to be a place to share homesteading related encouragement and inspiring ideas specfically related to homesteading. In an effort to keep our weekly round-up clutter free, links which are not specifically homestead related, and any promotions such as giveaways, contests, carnivals, etc, will be deleted in order to maintain the integrity of the Barn Hop.

2. Please remember this is a family friendly link up. Any pictures or posts linked to the hop which aren’t appropriate for our children to view or read will also be deleted immediately. We’re pretty conservative, so we ask that you use good judgment and err on the side of caution.

3. Make sure that you link to your Barn Hop post, not your blog’s main page, so your guests won’t have any trouble finding your great tips!

4. We would also appreciate it if you would 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 to link back to us with.

5. Want a chance to be a “Featured Homestead” next week?

Be sure you’ve included a link to the Barn Hop button in your post! Thank you for sharing the message about the Homestead Barn Hop!

6. Occasionally there is a problem posting due to glitches in the internet or the Linky Tools. If you have difficulties posting and it does not show up immediately, please wait a little while and try re-posting (this helps avoid double posting). We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, be we do not have absolute control over the internet. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

  1. Thanks for hosting! I left the post about making your own vanilla extract-

  2. Several of your shared links caught my eye this week. As my husband and I were just talking about getting some chickens, I’ll have to check out the post on comparison, and I’m just getting ready to make grape jelly so the grape jam post will be interesting as well. Thank you for hosting!

  3. Thank you so much for hosting :) I shared my homemade coconut milk recipe, chicken salad, and how we season olive oil for dipping sourdough bread :)

  4. Thanks for hosting!

  5. I put in a post I wrote recently about What if Farmer’s were the famous ones in our society… What might that look like… :)

  6. I’m happy to share with you my first experience in butchering chickens (#134)! I also posted about a problem that I’ve had with my eggs–no shell (#162)! Thanks for hosting the most popular blog hop that I know of. So many great ideas are shared here!

  7. Thanks for hosting, Jill. I hope you and baby are feeling well and you’re not overdoing it. :o)

    Today I linked up a post that’s all about inexpensive DIY Laundry and Household Cleaners that are safe and easy to use:

    I’ll also be launching a new giveaway tonight for some free e-books from The Survival Doctor.

  8. Thanks for hosting, Jill! Lots of great posts as always! I put up my Preserving Peaches without Sugar post and my Soaked Granola post today. Thanks again!
