Backyard Homesteading

Homesteading is becoming a way of life for so many people. They are seeing the benefit from growing their own fruits, vegetables, and eggs; and for some meat and dairy as well.

Just because you live in the city with a small yard or in a high rise apartment doesn’t mean you can’t follow a homesteading lifestyle. You can explore container gardening or even just buying local organic produce to dehydrate, can, or freeze.

Raising your own ducks or chickens for farm fresh eggs has many benefits. You can choose to incubate your own eggs, get day old chicks, or get birds that are already actively laying.

Ducks are a little different from chickens and can be an affectionate pet as well as keep up on bug control around your garden.
