The Homesteading Encyclopedia: The Essential Beginners Homestead Planning Guide for a Self-Sufficient Lifestyle
Discover how to start your homesteading journey the right away… and avoid making expensive beginner’s mistakes.
Are you thinking about moving to a country homestead, but have no idea how to start planning?
Do you want to raise your level of self-sufficiency, but live in a small city apartment and don’t know how to do it?
Just imagine what it would be like if you didn’t have to rely on municipal power or water grids (or pay those expensive bills every month).
Not to mention the joy and health benefits of growing your own organic food, instead of being forced to buy supermarket food infused with dangerous chemicals and pesticides.
Does this sound like a lot of work?
You’re right. It is.
Planning your homestead journey can take weeks, or even months if you’re a complete beginner.
You would have to read numerous books, research the farthest corners of the Internet, and spend thousands of dollars on consultations.
And even after all that planning, there are no guarantees that you wouldn’t miss something crucial… something that would make a huge dent in your budget and make you regret starting this blasted thing in the first place.
That’s how it goes for most first-time homesteaders — they make mistakes, lose money, learn from the experience, and spend more money to make it right.
If you don’t want to be one of them, you’ve come to the right place.
You don’t have to plan everything yourself. Actually, you don’t have to plan anything yourself.
We’ve done it for you.

And much more.
No matter your motivation, financial situation, or living arrangements, homesteading is a great option for anyone who wants to gain any level of independence — whether that’s a small taste or complete control of your lifestyle.
Even if you live in a city apartment, this book will spark your imagination, and show you how to make the most of what you have to become thoroughly self-sufficient.
