They are young yet and can take the hard work.....don't know them personally but they both gave up high paying jobs a few years ago to do homesteading.

I didn't know the government gave land away anymore. Where is that that they can homestead?

They bought the land.....probably at a very good price however they aren't too far from Branson MO

I think they mentioned they have about 15 acres.. I am interested in the videos because late hubby wanted to do this same thing when we first were married but we did not have money to purchase land. At least watching the videos I can dream of what could have been.

According to Wikipedia, homesteading is now defined as
Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-sufficiency. It is characterized by subsistence agriculture, home preservation of food, and may also involve the small scale production of textiles, clothing, and craftwork for household use or sale.
Here's an article describing what homesteading used to be:

I'm in love with their 15 acres.
I loved it before they brought in
the machinery to clear most everything.
I understand that for their purpose, it
had to be done.

Years ago, my younger brother asked me to
contact Alberta, Canada about homesteading.
Their reply was that they mo longer allowed it.
Perhaps because we're not Canadians?

Oh there is more wooded area on their acreage. They wanted it cleared for raising livestock. They left needed bigger trees for shade for the livestock.

Glad, if we were younger, wouldn't it be great to own about
20 acres and have goats, chickens, a large garden AND
woods for walking through!
