#Homestead #ThirdTrimester #EarthMamaMedicine

Welcome to The Mindful Homestead! We bought our dream property in southern New Hampshire in 2016, and decided to turn it into a place where we could grow as much of our food as possible. We raise chickens for eggs and meat, as well as pigs, and we have a garden where we are always trying new veggies.

The channel is a mix of farm life vlogs, how tos, whatever else we feel like recording. If you like what you see, be sure to SUBSCRIBE, and click the bell so that you’ll get notifications when we post new videos.

Thanks for watching!

About OFF GRID with DOUG and STACY:
We moved to our 11 acres in 2011 from a large city in the Midwest with zero carpentry and farming skills. We live with no solar / wind power / public water or well. We share our adventure to a sustainable life, growing our own food from vegetables to meat. We post videos DAILY and they range from HOW TO to EVERYDAY LIFE and NUTRITION on the off grid homestead. We were city folks just like you probably and wanted to enjoy life and have more control over our food. We share food recipes as well as natural remedies.

Homesteading is a great way of life… but in the beginning it can be VERY EXPENSIVE to get started.Β 
Imagine you get two pigs. To get those 2 pigs your first year you need to buy

a barn or shed for pigs
fencing
water trough
feeder
feed
A brand new homesteader with NOTHING could easily spend thousands on those two pigs.

When you spend that much money on just two pigs it can seem like your actually losing money, not saving any!Β 

So how do you cover the startup cost of homesteading?Β 

Amortize the cost.

Amortize is a fancy word that basically means breakdown the total startup cost into the amount of years you expect it to last, and add that much smaller figure to each animal you raise through out those years.

If you spend $5000 building a barn (random number just for the sake of math) and prepping for pigs, and the setup you put together lasts 10 years, then each year you need to cover $500. If every year you raise 2 pigs for the next 10 years, then each pig has a burden of $250 from that amortized startup cost. Raise more pigs, and that number goes down!

Add your amortized startup cost to each animal you raise during the lifespan of the homestead. If you sell your products, tack that amortized startup cost to your total cost, and then have your customers cover that cost for you.Β 

NOT PLANNING ON SELLING GOODS? You still want to factor that startup cost into your enterprises and see if you can raise your products, INCLUDING the startup cost, cheaper than you can buy them at the farmers market.Β

About:
Jason and Lorraine. In 2016 we sold most of our belongings and left the city in southern California to start a small homestead in the mountains of North Carolina. We left the city in search for a more minimal and intentional life. We became passionate about growing our own food and knowing what exactly is in our food after I (Jason) became diagnosed with cancer. Now 8 years in remission we as a family are on a journey to live our passions.
We document our life on YouTube videos to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and not be afraid of change. We started our own online general store where we have available the things we make and use in real life. Thank you for following us on this incredible life changing journey!
