The bottom line of your homestead farm’s economics.
- Are you all about a good environment for the kids?
- Making some money?
- Having good food to eat?
- Helping your local community?
All of the above are possible and important. The economics of a homestead is about the whole thing, it’s a holistic perspective of success. Mark had two discussions on the topic in his daily YouTube shows covering the topics of
- Self relience and discovery
- Yes, you need to make money, but opportunities abound if you’re willing to do things others won’t do
- S.L.E.: Significant Learning Experiences. We’ve had a lot of them. Mark shares some of his over the years.
- FREEDOM: you are you’re own boss, which can be an SLE in and of itself!
- The key is to DO THE THING.
- You have the ability to shape your world. Homesteading isn’t a place or to-do list. It’s a mindset.
- Scrounge: make the most of what other’s discard. The old saying “waste not, want not” applies here. Opportunities abound to be creative, save money, and learn things when you scrounge.
- And more!
There are many values inherant in farming practices. When you can see the whole picture, the total bottom line is much more profitable!
