TAKE BACK YOUR LIFE WITH MODERN HOMESTEADING
WORK OPTION IDEAS FOR LIVING THE MODERN HOMESTEADING DREAM
You may decide to have different jobs for the changing seasons of the year.
Some seasonal options to stir your mind would include:
Rototill other people’s gardens
Setting up other people’s gardens (pathways, raised beds, black/red plastic application, planting etc.)
Raising bees and selling honey
Selling baby chicks
Selling chicken eggs
Making and selling herbal teas and tinctures
Selling canned goods, jelly, baked goods or gluten free products
Selling camp wood or fire wood
You could decide to work away from the homestead part time. This may be necessary if having health insurance is important to you. Or it may help you make ends meet by having a dependable source of income. Jobs with benefits are typically found in schools, hospitals and retirement homes.
A few part-time off the homestead ideas might include:
School lunch attendant or Playground monitor
Teaching a class or two at a local high school or college
Grocery store picker/delivery service driver
Other homestead-based work to consider include:
Making and selling healthy dog treats
Web based product or service
Writing articles, a book, or how-to manual
Virtual assistant for the myriad of technical modalities (website maintenance, social media, marketing, writing posts, ghost writing etc.)
Small engine repair
Complimentary health care practitioner
Electrical installation and repair
Virtual teaching on a topic you know well
You may even decide to work two jobs from your homestead. This could be running an Airbnb or similar where you rent out space in your home or on your property to guests nightly or weekly for part or all of the year. This could be combined with any of the suggestions from above or your own idea.
Many like to make their money within nine months of the year and travel or just take a break for three months. It really all depends on your income requirements, skill set and the needs of your community. The options span far and wide.
TAKE BACK YOUR HEALTH USING NATURAL APPROACHES
Natural health, on the other hand, is about taking back your health. It is about regaining your God given right to choose what is best for your own body. It is about learning and using the tools that nature has provided you. Some examples might be using essential oils which are plant derived concentrated substances or homeopathic remedies which are derived from plant, animal or mineral sources. Both types come from nature and the body is able to quickly assimilate them offering fast healing.
Natural healing can also come from nutrient dense foods such as raw honey, healthy fats, organic free-range chicken bone broth and the myriad of organic vegetables.
In the beginning, you may feel like a fish swimming upstream as you are initially met with much opposition by those who have little understanding. To those, I say “Beware of the half-truth. You may have gotten hold of the wrong half.” (Author unknown)
Using credible sources, such as Sayer Ji’s enormous library with over 10,000 health topics, you can easily become knowledgeable on what interests you. Sayer provides evidence based natural medical information helping you learn and review the field of natural health.
When you are open to new or different information you will be able to use discernment when making health choices for you and your family. Why let someone else make that choice for you, someone who does not have your best interest at hand?
When you come back to the homestead you are returning to nature. When you walk into the woods you become one with your natural surroundings. Natural health and modern homesteading go hand in hand. The products derived from natural sources feed your health. It is your health that is required to keep your modern homestead alive.
