Welcome To The Farm
How-to Wisdom From The Elliott Homestead
Most of you landed on my blog because you were, in some capacity, interested in homesteading. Maybe for you it was because you wanted to make your own chicken feed. Maybe it was the idea of finally beginning to make your own homemade bread. Maybe it was because you were interested in putting a greenhouse on your property and needed to know how to do it. But regardless of the reason, we all share in one ideal: we're do-ers.
We want to do things.
Not because they're easy or without their struggles – but because that DIY, homemade spirit grabs ahold of our being and forces us to labor over the soil of our garden, the sink of our kitchen, and the udder of our dairy cow.
We can't get enough.
It was with YOU in mind that I wrote Welcome To The Farm. 300+ pages devoted to teaching you how to grow your own food, build your own homestead – whether you're on 1/4 acre or 100 acres.
Our ‘how-to' guide is filled with over 200 photographs and stories, sharing with you both our victories and extreme failings, as we've built our very own farm these past five years. I don't take things lightly, in fact, I feel like I often bare things heavier than I should, so it wasn't with a passive heart that I approached writing all 75,000 words of this book. I took on this project, my very first with a publisher, with the intention of giving it the best I had. So that's what I did.
I wanted to offer you something special. Something of deep, sincere value to your homesteading journey. And I think we've done just that.
Just in time for spring chicks, seed starting, and farmers markets.
It's my farming heart in book form and I'm humbled to share it with you.
May it bless your farm for years to come!
Much love to you all,
