Welcome to Homegrown Family.
We live on a small farm in central Florida where my husband and I tend to our farm and home school our four children. Our goal is to give our family the best possible life—one that was nurturing, healthy, and full of memorable experiences! We are learning to grow and produce as much of our own food as possible.
Are you interested in learning more about homesteading? Perhaps you have a farming background already, maybe you just recently purchased some land and are ready to get back to your roots, or maybe you are like the millions of others who are just exhausted running in the rat race and you’re looking for ways to slow down and get back to the fundamentals, and you think homesteading just might be the answer you are looking for. My goal with this blog is to acquaint you with my family’s experience in homesteading to help you get things started.
This site is a place where we will share our experiences in the hopes of educating and inspiring others. We will share each of our adventures as we live, love, and learn to grow on our farm.
This blog will cover topics ranging from gardening, farming, organic benefits, and livestock. We were inspired by Amish culture, and, in particular, their dedication to simplicity and a slower pace in life. In that regard, we try to focus mostly on back-to-the-basics strategies.
Homesteading is not an easy task to undertake. It requires that you commit your entire body and soul, your finances, and your lifelong goals. You have to be all in. But, when done correctly, this change will impact your family’s life forever—and for the better. So relax, read on, and enjoy! We are so excited to hear from you with any questions or comments about our experiences.
