It’s done. Finished. Completed. Wrapped up. Buttoned up. Concluded. Published.
And I can hardly believe it. This might just be the biggest project I have ever embarked on in my entire life. Yes, even bigger than building a half mile of fence or pulling those 1.2 million staples from the tumble-down pens on our property.
But oh my goodness, what a learning experience it has been! I know many of you have been just as excited as I am to see the finished product, so without further adieu, I would like to introduce to you,
Natural Homestead: 40+ Recipes for Natural Critters & Crops
+ Tired of feeding commercial feed to your chickens that contains GMOs, antibiotics, and processed by-products like feather meal?
+ Struggling to create a natural environment for your cooped-up flock?
+ Battling pests on your homestead because you refuse to purchase chemical pesticides that could be toxic to your family?
+ Feeling discouraged because those chemical dewormers are no longer working?
+ Wishing you had some home remedies on hand for when your critters get cuts and scrapes?
+ Giving yourself a headache when you try to disinfect your coop or barn with bleach?
How Natural is YOUR Homestead?
You’re ditching the chemical-laden bath products. You’re buying organic produce. You’re reading the labels of everything that comes into your house.
But what about the barnyard?
I had the realization that even though I was being diligent about reducing the chemical-load in my home and family, I was basically ignoring the rest of my homestead. What about the chemical dewormers, processed chicken feed, petroleum-laced udder balms, and toxic pesticides that were lingering in my cabinets?
Why You Should Care about Creating a More Natural Homestead
- Parasite resistance is a very real problem as many chemical deworming products are simply no longer effective due to overuse. (Source)
- Not only do some bagged chicken feeds contain bizarre ingredients like feather meal, but that feather meal has also been shown to add unwanted antibiotics to the feed. (Source)
- That popular herbicide that everyone has sitting in their garage has been linked to tumors in animals, DNA damage, cancer, endocrine disruption, and physiological disorders in crops. (Source)
- One of the most common garden pesticides in the United States has been linked to reproductive problems, cancer, and neurological issues. (Source)
Natural Homestead is a 200-page digital book jam-packed with over 40 natural homesteading recipes & formulas and 60+ full-color photos.
When I set out to replace the products on my homestead that contained toxins or words I couldn’t pronounce, I quickly realized finding the information I was after was a bit like searching for a needle in a haystack.
While Pinterest has no shortage of recipes for things like window cleaner and chocolate chip cookies, when you go searching for homemade chicken feeds or herbal deworming recipes, you won’t come up with much.

Jill, I am fairly new to your blog, but downloaded your ebook this morning. First of all, what a treat! But to your readers, I highly recommend this resource to all of us who are striving to live the simple, natural life style. Personally, my partner and I have an urban homestead in Denver with backyard chickens, garden etc, and the recipes for natural pest and Chicken products alone make this book well worth it. And finally, as an Herbalist, I want to thank you for writing such a well thought out resource that continues to make the connection of personal health and wellbeing to simple and spirit driven living. Good Luck! Though I suspect once the words gets out about this ebook you won’t need it.
Jill Winger says
Wow Steven- thank you SO much for your kind words this morning! Enjoy the book and happy homesteading! 🙂

I bought your new e-book this morning, but can’t figure out how to access it. I don’t know where to go to download it. Could you help me with this?
Jill Winger says
After you paid, you should have had a page open up with the download link and you should also have a email with a download link in your inbox. (check spam filters/folders, etc) If you still aren’t seeing it, shoot me an email: info@theprairiehomestead(dot)com
Amber Coughlin says
I just sent you an email and it was returned…urgh! I didn’t find it in any folders in my acct. ;-( Is there another way I can download this without having to pay for it again? (But Maybe I should steer clear of the computer today…lol)
Thank you for your time and help!
Dear Jill, I just purchased your book which is the answer to my prayers. No later than today I was researching how to take better care of the chooks I’ve just received.
I have no idea why but after payment, Paypal told me I had sent an ‘echeque’. It’s the first time I’ve heard of this, the money is usually taken straight out of my account. But anyway, I hope to get the link and download this very soon. Can’t wait!
Jill Winger says
I’m so excited for you to read it Vanessa!
I think depending on how you have your PayPal account set up, it will send e-checks. I did get a notification of it however, so as soon as it “clears”, you should get a download link in your inbox. 🙂 Holler if you have trouble!
We bought your book this evening and I’m almost all they way through reading it. It is great and is going to prove quite a good resource for us. I have a question. I see in your book (and in other sources) that whey is good for chickens. How do you feed it to them? We have plenty of goat milk whey and our chickens, turkeys, ducks, cats and dog won’t touch it. We put in a pan for the cats and dog and in a chicken waterer for the birds and they all ignore it until it molds and we dump it out. What do you do to get your birds to drink it?
Jill Winger says
Hmmm… that’s interesting! I’ve never had trouble getting my birds to drink it–I usually just pour it into a pan and they go nuts. Sometimes if I give them a whole bunch, they won’t finish it right away, but generally they like it.
That is interesting. We’ll try just pouring it into a pan and see if for some reason they just don’t like to have it in the waterer.
Awaiting patiently for Kindle version:))
Is there a way to download this book again? I have already purchased it but my computer got a virus and I didn’t have it backed up.
I have purchased two of this book & love it!! I’m wanting to make the deworming cookies for my lactating goat & hit a wall when I read the recipe & saw that I needed dried, crushed herbs. Which herbs? I’m confused. Could you please clarify this for me?
I wanted to buy your book but the link to buy doesn’t seem to work… is it still available for purchase?
Thanks a lot!
Jessica Henderson says
I also found these links to buy are not working. I can’t find the ebook through Play Books or Kindle either!
Lonna Price-Maylone says
I am so interested in this book but can’t get the download. All I can find on Amazon is outrageously priced for a used book. Is there anywhere we can still buy the book (Homesteader 40+ recipes for critters and crops). I would love to be able to get the book but am not able to pay $80+ for a used edition.
Alice Hershey Silverman says
I am getting my first baby chicks and would also love your ebook.. but can’t seem to purchase it from your site. Is it still available?
