Play • 36 min

You’ve bought your new homesteading property and you’re ready to move in. But don’t go buy the cow just yet! There are some key things you need to check off your list so you can be better prepared as you start to settle in.  

Josh and Carolyn talk about the mistakes they made when they first moved in and how setting a strategy, learning your environment and taking it slow can set you up for success on your new property. 

In this episode: 

  • How creating the right plan, thinking ahead and following these key steps will save you time, money and reduce stress. 
  • Why it’s important to spend time observing your property and learn as much as you can to be able to adjust over time. 
  • Why being a “prepper” is just as important as being a “homesteader.” 
  • What you need to do before you start your garden and bring on animals.
  • What is permaculture and why is it important? 
  • Question of the week: Is butter made from clabbered milk considered a “fermented butter?” You can check out a butter making video Josh and Carolyn made on their YouTube channel. 
  • Harvesting season is in full swing and Carolyn is trying a new canning method called, “low-temperature pasteurization.”
