The First-Time Homesteader

The First-Time Homesteader by author Jessica Sowards of YouTube’s Roots & Refuge Farm is the second in her book series helping others find improved self-reliance and self-sufficiency. Homesteading is a mindset and a lifestyle aimed at living a more sustainable and intentional life. As you begin your homesteading journey, Jessica guides you through the process of setting up your property (no matter how small or large), establishing a garden, welcoming animals into the fold, living more resourcefully, and expanding your homestead kitchen tools and skills with confidence.

This best-seller includes information on:

  • Raising chickens for meat and eggs
  • Keeping cows and starting a home dairy
  • Planning and planting a homestead vegetable garden
  • Keeping bees for honey, pollination, and beeswax
  • And More!

Whether you are planning to live off-grid or have a more urban and contemporary homestead, The First-Time Homesteader is a must-have resource and guide as you begin your journey.
