    Great video. Last time you did this challenge I was still dreaming of someday becoming a homesteader, now I realize I already was one before I was able to get my own land to live and thrive on. Challenge accepted!! Sammy and I will get a video out soon.

  2. Terra Ranch says:

    Rose, I've asked this before, but would you make a video on your goals for your goats? You've got 25 or so, and what are their role on your homestead? Feeding so many must be expensive and I'm wondering if your plan is to make money from them. Are you thinking of selling the milk? Selling the babies? It is interesting watching your large flock, so it would be valuable to hear your goat management goals. Hugs Rose❤️

  3. Bear Bottom Acres says:

    Oh my goodness, great idea! My husband and I were just talking about this topic. We JUST bought land in August and we have been thinking a lot about defining why we want to homestead. We are just starting out on You Tube. May we add a video to your challenge? This should be really fun!

  4. Crystal A says:

    I just love your little family. We are getting ready to move we have been remodeling since spring and of course I started a garden. It was amazing to use it as my therapy for sure. Not only from the stress of remodeling but because my son was a boot camp to become a Marine. He is a Marine now but it was a very stressful time for me to have no communication with him. Gardening is very therapeutic for me and I will continue this for many years to come. Thank you for sharing your little peace of heaven with all of us.

  5. Debra E says:

    I want to homestead so badly on our 6 acres. My husband doesn’t. I do grow veggies in my greenhouse. I’m planning on getting chickens this spring and hopeful a rabbit or two. I also do a little prepping of food and supplies when I can. Again my hubby doesn’t see a need. I’m retired and do a little each year to bring myself a little closer to my dream.

  6. Little Jordan Farm says:

    Your family is beautiful..Blessings

  7. Dark Age Growing says:

    Count me in! I'll be making a video for this one for sure!

  8. CityGirl CountryHeart says:

    ROSE, I will be doing a WHY I WANT TO HOMESTEAD video.

  9. Toni Franklin says:

    Rose I have to say your looking great. Homesteading really becomes you. I have been blessed to see how your health has improved since you started vlogging.

  10. Simple Living Alaska says:

    Love the video, homesteading is definitely a wonderful way of living 🙂

  11. Christie Betts says:

    Love it when ya'll get the family together for a video!

  12. Marge Perez says:

    Sweet kids

  13. Judy Hancock says:

    You two look so healthy and fit.

  14. Ivakay Mead says:

    Goat is delicious. Harder to part with as pets. But get a neighbor to help. I don't have a you tube yet but. Here goees. Not necessarily in order. 1. To use our land to feed us. 2. Love of animals. Being able to share meat, eggs and veggies. Sharing our bounty. 3. Our time together. 4. I'm recently retired and tired of tv and social media. 5. Being one with nature and learning what God is teaching me. Living our dream.
    Thanks

    I stumbled across a Motherearth article from Shirley Bliley "How to make goat milk butter without a separator." You proberably already know it, but it was interesting. You guys are great. God bless

  16. lmast41 says:

    All your animals are safe from freezer camp, the only meat I saw eaten was a qual. With all those goats you should never go hungry

  17. Valerie D says:

    Awesome, Thanks for sharing…

  18. jdawgs place says:

    awesome challenge! and i stepped up to the plate…them boys are so precious…

  19. sweetirisfarm says:

    LOVE! I'll have to think about my reasons.

  20. Tami Lewis says:

    Loved the video!!

  21. Happy Farms La. says:

    I forgot to list my reasons! 1) because it brings me joy! 2) because it is a learning journey ( love to learn) 3) because my kids can learn too 4) to decrease our reliance on the "system". 5) it is delicious! Thank you guys for sharing your life. Thank you for your transparency and thank you for posting this and connecting like-minded homesteaders and dreamers like me!

  22. Aragmar Verilian says:

    The kids are probably happier than others cooped up in some dirty city:)

  23. Aragmar Verilian says:

    Nothing beats proper food. That and the kids roaming around the farm, bonding with the animals, caring for them, learning early on how the circle of nature works!

  24. Genevieve Greene says:

    All great points. Another reason for me would be to make good use of the space you are given. We are building on my parents' place and yes it is lots of room to work and keep under control but the bush has taken over and people have dumped mostly rum bottles so that I discarded four garbage bags full and still more to go. It made me angry but I am reminded that my parents are older now and it is my turn to step up and do something worthwhile with the land. Homegrown food will go a long way towards ending my health challenges.

  25. Happy Farms La. says:

    I call myself a "wannabe homesteader" I am a gardener. We have had chickens, but had issues with predators. We have taken a few years off and figured out a plan for next time. My videos are mostly focused on growing a garden – cheap, easy and without chemicals! I enjoy sharing the journey!

  26. annakcooley says:

    Great video!!
    I think my biggest stress will be if my first Spring garden doesn’t do well. My first fall garden is doing pretty well. I didn’t plant tons of stuff as I’m just learning, but I certainly appreciate you guys!!
