How to Connect with Other Homesteaders

Does homesteading ever feel lonely? Does it feel like your friends and family really don't understand your lifestyle and goals? It is important to find other homesteaders that share your same passions and heartaches. But how do you go about connecting with other homesteaders that are all across the world?

Does homesteading ever feel lonely? Does it feel like your friends and family really don’t understand your lifestyle and goals? It is important to find other homesteaders that share your same passions and heartaches. But how do you go about connecting with other homesteaders that are all across the world?

One day long ago when I first started my homesteading adventure, I had a encounter with a friend who had come over to the house. She saw what I was doing with the chickens and rabbits and garden. She said to me, “why do you spend so much time on this stuff? Why don’t you just buy eggs and produce at the grocery store. It would be so much easier.” I told her it would be easier but not as healthy or fulfilling. I walked away from that conversation thinking- I need to find people that think like me and understand what I want in life. But where do you find people like that?

Connecting with Other Homesteaders

Does homesteading feel lonely sometimes? We want to help you connect with other homesteaders so we can all learn and grow! Online Community | Homesteading | Homestead Blogs

Homesteading Blogs

In this internet age, it is easier to find people that agree with you, no matter what your views are. For homesteaders, there are many great bloggers out there that are writing about stuff that you want to read. Here are a few of my favorites:

The Prairie Homestead

The Elliott Homestead

Morning Chores

Reformation Acres

Pioneer Settler

Facebook Groups

Facebook groups are a great way to connect with real homesteaders in real time. You can ask questions or advice and they will get back to you quickly. Here are a few I am a member of:

The Homestead Front Porch

Homesteading

Homesteading and Farming

Homesteading Trading Post

Your Local Feed Store

I have gotten so much help on my homesteading journey from the people at the local feed store. I can ask them questions about chickens, rabbits, bees, gardening, etc and they are always knowledgeable. This is a great place to make friends in the homesteading and farming world. It is also a great place to find out what is going on in you community for agriculture (such as the county fair and ag expo).

Farmers Market

The farmers market is a wonderful place for like minded people to gather. The farmers and crafters at the farmers market are usually very interested in local food and agriculture. They can answer questions about best practices and what is available to grow in your area.

Conferences for Homesteaders

This is a big goal of mine for next year. I wish I could go this year, but it just isn’t in the cards. I would love to rub shoulders with homesteaders from all over the country and listen to these amazing speakers. If you live closer or are able to go to the Homesteaders of America Homesteading Conference in October, I think it would be well worth it. Here is the info and tickets are on sale now:

YouTubers

YouTube is a great resource for videos on just about any topic you can imagine. For homesteaders, it gives you a real opportunity to see how others do what you are doing. It is so amazing to see these homesteaders living what they preach. Here are a couple of channels I like to watch:

Pure Living for Life

Appalachias Homestead with Patara

An American Homestead

Noreen’s Kitchen

Our Half Acre Homestead

Podcasts

Podcasts are a great way to gain more information about all kinds of topics. They are like the old time radio shows of the past but in the modern era. Here are a few of my favorites:

Chicken Thistle CoopCast

Living Homegrown with Theresa Loe

Homesteady

Modern Homesteading Podcast

Self-Sufficient Life Podcast

    Love your ideas! You listed some of my favorite bloggers, and I just requested to join a Facebook homestead group. Hoping in the near future I’ll be able to go to the Mother Earth News fair since they hold one just a couple of hours from me. (By the way, found you on Google+)

    Thanks Google+! I am still new to that social media platform. So glad you dropped by! I would love to go to some fairs and meet people face to face! Until then I will enjoy getting to know people online. Maybe I’ll see you in Facebook group!

    Thank you for this list! I have been trying to connect with other homesteaders online, which is going well. It’s offline that I am still struggling a little, I am not a real people person.
    Have a great day!
