Being a homesteader requires learning a wide spectrum of things. This body of knowledge includes carpentry, animal husbandry, butchery, food preservation, gardening, cooking/baking, nutrition, natural remedies, seed saving, and I’m sure I left a few things out. It can be quit overwhelming. However some of the things that we love about it, is that it is real life, dealing with things that are alive, that you are physically taking care of your family and that you can also work together as a family.
While watching several homesteading videos, I saw a great collaboration with about 21 channels. Each homesteader shared what their top three homesteading books are. I thought it would be great to do the same thing on this blog.
Here are a few books that I intending on having in my library: (I wanted to add more but I will keep it down to three)
- Building Small Barns, Sheds & Shelters
- No Dig Organic Home & Garden: Grow, Cook, Use, and Store Your Harvest
- Temple Grandin’s Guide to Working with Farm Animals: Safe, Humane Livestock Handling Practices for the Small Farm
What are your top three homesteading books that you would recommend? Please comment below. Here is a link to the collaboration on youtube as well.
