Contrary to popular belief, a homesteader doesn’t have to be someone who lives on hundreds of acres with the perfect red barn and white picket fence.

They live in apartments in the middle of the asphalt jungle. And in suburbia with mini-vans. And on a few acres on the outskirts of town.

Your Custom Homestead takes you through a 21-day process of moving closer to your homesteading dreams, no matter where you may live.

  7. I just subscribed (and found) your blog not long ago. I would love to have the soaked grains ebook. Sounds like a wonderful addition to baking. Do you have a way to print your recipes from your blog? I am anxious to try your whole wheat tortillas recipe that you just put on. I would rather not print with all the color and extras, if possible. Thanks. Oh yea…where are you at in WY? We are in western SD.

    • For printing, I would suggest copying and pasting the recipe into a Word doc or Wordpad. Then you can delete any pictures you don’t want and save on that color ink!

    Ontario, Canada

I’ve just subscribed to the Barn Hop via email, and look forward to both the ebook and to reading what comes next!! :)
    peace and forward progress in your journey as well!

  84. Love your blog! 2nd year on our 3 1/2 acre homestead and 1st year to have (43) chickens! We are new to all this so I can’t tell you how helpful your info on chickens has been. Last week we finally got an egg…what a joy to go to the barn and see that first egg laying in the nesting box…silly, I know, but when you’ve waited months for this day, it’s pretty special!!! I too would love the ebook if is still available.

  85. I just subscribed. I would love your ebook!

I want a milk cow, chickens, and a couple goats and sheep. I would love to have your e-book! They say you’re never to old to learn- lets hope I can prove that correct!

  93. Hi Jill,

    I was born and raised in Wyoming and still consider it home. The largest portion of my family still live there and I make it home as often as possible. Your photos make me homesick!! Thank you in advance for the ebook. Looking forward to sharing homesteading adventures with you!!

  94. Hi Jill!!

    I am very excited that I stumbled upon your site! We’re beginning the “self-sufficiency/homesteading” process. We’re planning on getting a few goats this next spring, for our dairy supply, so I love seeing what’s going on with your and yours. Thanks for the wonderful posts! Would love to get a copy of your free book on soaking grains!

    Thanks, Holly

  106. I just subscribed (at least I hope it worked)!! I fall into the “I have no idea what you are talking about” camp. I have just started my research about homesteading… and it was unintentional. However, I am intrigued!! Thanks for your all your work to help make this more clear.

  107. I subscribe and I love your site!

  108. Hi,
    I just found your blog through Real Food Kitchen Tour, and would love the free e-book on soaking grains!

  109. I’d love the free ebook. This is a subject I’m interested in learning and experimenting in. Thanks!

  110. Hi,

    I’ve subscribed to your site and would love to receive a copy of the e-book. I’ve experimented a little with soaking grains but would love some more information!

    Found your site thru Cheeseslave’s kitchen tour and am looking forward to reading more of your lovely posts.


  111. Hi Jill, just signed up to follow your blog today. I heard about it after Annmarie over at Cheeseslave posted about you. I LOVE your blog!!! We have 6.5 acres irrigated pasture in Northern Colorado and have a horse, cow, and dog, as well my sweet 3 1/2 year old daughter. We also hunt and are planning on milking our cow this summer when she freshens. (We think she’s a Belted Galloway/Dutch Belted cross) Our covenants currently don’t allow for chickens, but I am working on that (yes, we can have horses, cattle, sheep and goats, but no poultry. Go figure!) We currently get raw milk from a local grassfed organic dairy, and I barter my homemade moz cheese for farm fresh eggs. We pretty much eat the same as ya’ll up there, so I am thrilled to get more ideas! I had to laugh at the picture in your kitchen with your books- all of which are on MY kitchen shelf! Don’t you love how Weston Price friendly Julia Child’s french recipes are??!! Anywho, I have purchased a 50lb bag of wheat, and just bought an old Magic Mill off of craigslist, so I am “set” to grind my own flour, but don’t know much about it, or on soaking grains for that matter. Looking forward to reading the Ebook you suggest! On buying wheat, I bought Red Winter wheat, because that is what is locally grown around here, but now I am worried that it might not be good for baking??? Your thoughts???? Thanks! -Cathy

    • Cathy! I’m thinking we are kindred spirits for sure! Sounds like you have a awesome start to your homestead- way to go! And that is insane that your covenants allow all those animals except chickens…. hope you can get that changed soon. Hard Red Winter wheat is all that I can get locally as well (I don’t think we live too far apart from each other!). But, I like to order Hard White from Azure Standard. The Red works perfectly fine for everything, but the White is a little more mild, and makes an easier transition for those that don’t “love” whole wheat products.

  112. Jill, do you have access to my email via your view of the comments? Just curious. I would love to meet up with you if we live close enough. (I could field trip up with my daughter during a good weather spell) I’ve got so many questions and it would be fun to commune with a kindred spirit. (We love Jesus, too) :)

  113. I subscribed and I’m so glad I found your site! Hoping to learn a lot

  167. Just found your site today. Have subscribed, and can not wait to spend some down time, scouring your blog. Thanks

  168. Just happened on you’re website today and will see it will be a valuable resource. I have chickens, goats, been cooking almost everything from scratch for a year now. getting my feet wet slowly but surely. I have been researching greenhouses, gardening and have decided to go with hydroponics for majority of it, but not getting in a hurry until I have a plan :). Natural and organic is the way to go, but some items at a health food store are soooo expensive especially prepared food. I am going to have to ponder on that one for a while. very overwhelming.

  169. I just found your website and subscribed. I am excited about the ebook too. I am just learning about soaking grains and new to the topic.

  170. I just found your Web site when searching for information on raw butter and molds. I’m so glad I stumbled by! I’d love the ebook and I’ll be following your RSS feed for sure.

  171. Wow! I just discovered your site and love it! Are you still giving out the free ebook, ’cause it sounds plumb interesting!!

  172. I am enjoying your site so much. Thanks for the e-book. I have always tried to cook whole, healthy foods, and now am learning to soak, ferment, culture,,,,,Wow! it all makes sense, I just
    never put it together with our food preparation. I have always loved gardening and canning and freezing, etc. Used to keep a sour dough starter, and make yogurt and so on, but life changed, went a different direction and now I have come full circle back .

  173. I just signed up for your emails…been a fan on facebook for a little bit. Looking forward to this e-book. I love Katie @ Kitchen Stewardship! Thanks so much!! Happy New Year!

  184. hi, I subscribed a while ago, I am very interested in whole foods and it helps that I live on 8A in rural Australia with my husband, we have a milking cow, several steers, chickens, a big garden and 2 dogs. I’ve just read Nourishing Traditions and I want to try everything all at once, but I’m trying to pace myself. Soaked grains seems like an easy next step. I liked your ideas for using whey too. I just made pickled cucumbers using whey and when I tasted them I couldn’t believe that they had worked and tasted great! Anyway, I enjoy you blog and look forward to reading this ebook. Cheers, Liz

    [I made yogurt again yesterday, I feel accomplished! Especially since I finally managed to put the whey to a good use, that doesn't make my husband at all wiser: Ice cube trays, freezer and smoothie blender. He never knew what hit him! And we're both feeling much better as of late.]

    • Way to go Penny! Thanks for subscribing, and isn’t that ‘accomplished’ feeling the best? Congrats on your yogurt!

      • I’m still looking forward to getting and reading that e-book. It might have gotten lost in the ether. Thank you in advance, though.

  272. Debbie S. says:

    I just subscribed and look forward to learning more. For the last several months I make sure to soak my nuts, seeds and beans… So, I would love to know the importance of what to do with flour as I use several different non-wheat flours to make my own crackers, etc.

  273. Debbie S. says:

    Oh, and I’m also vegan, so not sure of how much I can really do, but I’ve learned so much already, why not keep learning!

    • Debbie- although oftentimes dairy products are used in soaking, you can also use lemon juice and apple cider vinegars. So, you should be able to do a large majority of the recipes!

  274. I finally subscribed today. Thanks for the e-book. I always need refreshing on these things!

  275. I have subscribed for a short time and have always been interested in soaking grains, now with all the info in one place I might get started!!! Thank you!!!

  287. I’d love to learn more about soaking grains. I read somewhere that you should do this and it has something to do with phytic acid but I don’t remember the particulars. I have gotten into the habit of soaking my steel cut oats overnight with water and yogurt but I didn’t know I should be soaking other grains as well. I guess I better read your book!

  288. I am looking forward to getting the ebay too!

  289. I just subscribed to your website. I thoroughly loved reading about your goats. How long have you used the soap and water to clean the teats? I’m just wondering because I used an animal disinfectant that was recommended to me. I’ve had to get rid of my goats due to moving. But will be getting more. I’m just curious about how others do things. Thank you so very much. Can’t wait to read your ebook. Julie

    • Hi Julie!
      Thanks for subscribing. I’ve only ever used the soapy water to wash the udder. Although I do know of others who use a variety of different products. I think it’s really personal preference. I’ve never had an issue with my simple method, though. ;)

  305. I just subscribed after finding your recipe for sourdough tortillas. I’d much rather be able to just buy them, but, as you pointed out, it’s hard to find (impossible so far) without unwanted icky additives! Sigh.
    I’m learning more about soaking and souring and how it handles gluten. So exciting!
    I’m really looking forward to your e-book, thanks!

  306. Am exploring more and more about homesteading and have found your blog to be quite insightful and I look forward to reading your e-book.
