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.

Meet Kelly Reed

My name is Kelly Reed, and my husband Robert and I have been homesteading since 2009. Over a decade of experience with off-grid living has given us a wealth of knowledge and expertise, but it wasn’t always like that! When we started, we were totally new to all of this, just like you. We spent a lot of time and energy looking through resources that promised to help us plan and prepare. We found that there were plenty of resources—in fact, there were almost too many— but it was difficult to navigate such an overwhelming amount of information. Sometimes, these sources seemed to contradict one another, and many also offered an idealized idea of what home? steading life was like, which set us up for a rude awakening. This confusion meant that we went through a lot of frustration and pain, not to mention losing a lot of time and money when we made uninformed or misguided choices. Through a lot of trial and error, we’ve learned the best way to do things—but we don’t want rude awakenings or trial and error for you. That’s why I’ve written this book. I’ve only included the things I believe you need to know so you won’t have to sift through tons of irrelevant content. Reading this, you’ll get the benefit of all of the years I spent testing my research and honing my knowledge, and I can’t wait to share it with you.
