A List Of Favorite Homesteading Blogs


I have been so fortunate to have met so many wonderful people through blogging.  Today I wanted to share a list of some of the {active} Homesteading-type of blogs I read in hopes you may find a new one to add to your own list.  :-)  If you don't see yours here, leave a link in the comments - I would love to follow you!!

Maple Hill 101
Daisy and her family currently reside in Florida with aspirations of moving to a homestead a little further North.   I adore her blog through which she has taught me a number of lessons in gratitude and appreciating the beauty of life.  She offers a plethora on helpful posts such as DIY's, organizing {you all know I LOVE organization}, her Farm School series offered numerous gardening tips and she offers a lot of great ideas for eating healthy on a budget.  She's a great inspiration.

The Elliott Homestead
I adore Shaye - she has such a down-to-earth, honest, writing style.  A beautiful blog, amazing recipes and a fun peak at her real farming life.

Wayward Spark
Camille and her family live off-grid in Oregon.  Her blog is full of stunning photos coupled with very well written, and enjoyable to read, posts.  Not to mention, the incredibly detailed beekeeping posts she so generously shares.  Read her about page to get a sense of her humorous and no-nonsense writing style.    They live quite an inspiring self-sufficient lifestyle.

Born Imaginative
The amount of things Jackie gets done in a day is truly astounding.  Mama to 2 adorable kids, she is all things homesteading.  Along with her husband, they are also revitalizing a farm, this one is in Maine.  If you get a chance, check out some of her old posts with photos of her beautiful home.  Oh, and her recipes are scrumptious!!  {you must check out her bread recipe}  Her blog sub-title sums up her blog well:  Resourceful, creative ideas for the home, kitchen, kids and family.

Country Life Experiment
I am a fairly new follower of Jo's and was immediately struck by her amazing photos and way with words.  Mama to 3 littles, she and her husband are living the country life on a family farm in Australia.

Lovely Greens
Tanya is a super-talented woman with a beautiful blog full of recipes, Beekeeping tips, DIY and recipes/tutorials for homemade beauty and bath products.  She resides on the gorgeous Isle of Man and comes up with amazing tutorials, including videos on a number of them, that leave me feeling fully inspired.  She is a fellow all-natural soap maker, her online store is here.

Sugar Cookies To Peterbilts
Kris lives and farms in Wisconsin and shares bits about her farm life including gardening as well as a large selection of delicious recipes!!

Oak Hill Homestead
Kathi has an amazing blog where she shares her wealth of knowledge about homesteading and self-sufficient living.  From gardening and edible weeds to making things from scratch to animal care, her site has it all.  Not to mention that her information about goats is fantastic!

Sprouts 'n' Wings Farm
Michaele shares lovely photos and information on her wonderful site.  She has a lot of animals full of personality and she just added bees this year so I'm thrilled we get to experience the world of beekeeping with her!  She and her 5 beautiful daughters are fellow soap makers.  They make luxurious products from their abundance of goats milk.  You can find their online store here.

Sunny Corner Farm
Tracy and her family live on a beautiful farm in Australia.  She shares posts about the farm, gardening, recipes and crafting.  {check out her cattle - they are amazing!}  I love that she has a great ability to share her daily life in words and photos and make me, the reader, feel like we're sitting and chatting over a cup of tea.

The Pipeliner's Wife
Liz and her husband recently moved to a home on 5 acres that they are making big plans for.  She shares gardening tidbits and a nice collection of delicious recipes.

One Hundred Dollars A Month
While not truly a homesteading blog, Mavis' site has tons {TONS!} of posts about saving money, gardening, and cooking on a budget.  She and her family reside in my former home state of Washington.  She posts numerous times a day giving you a lot of info to read.  The nice thing is, it's all worth reading!

Can't wait to dive into this tantalizing list. Might be the only thing to do on the 4th with this storm approaching.
In other news, as things are heating up here, still loving the deodorant sticks that I ordered...no irritation AND they really work.
