How to Make Money from Your Homestead (101 Ideas to Earn an Income)

Ideas for Making Money from Your Homestead

Do you want to make money from your homestead? You’re not alone! Many people dream of leaving the ‘burbs to buy a little farm and earn an income from it. Most of us had ancestors who farmed for a living and there’s something romantic and practical about wanting to live more simply. My family raised beef and pork when I was young and I loved farm life, even though it was a lot of work.

Earning an income from your homestead can increase your self-reliance and supplement or replace a 9 to 5 job. It might seem like a crazy idea, and I don’t recommend diving in without doing your research first. However, with planning and the right set up, you may be able to quit your day job and finance your homestead with…your homestead!

    All great ideas that take dedication and WORK!

    Us homesteaders have to be creative, and stick with it, even when our projects (like a blog) aren’t there yet. Keep pressing on!
