How does anyone make money homesteading ??
This.Also: saving money is almost like making money.
Joel Salatin did not work 8 hour days. He worked in town until the land, home, and equipment was paid for, and after a day working in town he came home and worked on his small farm..Many folks TRY to apply the modern idea of making $80,000 a year, working 8:00 to 5:00, spending evenings and weekends watching television to "homesteading." It simply doesn't work that way.
I understand that Joel Salatin makes it look like it's possible, but he has a support staff and has written lots of books that net him cash for travel, etc.
Interesting - I've been thinking of doing that, looks like I'll have to look into it some more.One retired couple we know have green houses and they "sprout" flowers and veggies for the local garden centers and stores. Can't keep ahead of the demand but do not want more work.
Same as folks in any sector do by evaluating a market need, taking steps to fill it within their available resources and hedging their bet with other investment income streams.How does anyone make money homesteading ??
