I know that we've got a few homesteaders on here, and I hope you'll be really honest with me. How difficult would it be to start homesteading as a single person?
Those are all good points. I guess I was looking at it as some grand adventure, especially since I've never raised livestock and I didn't grow up on a farm. Luckily, I have a few of the typical homesteading skills already. I'll start expanding on those.Really (in my opinion) "homesteading" should be more about doing more for your own household rather than always hiring or buying what is needed.....and that's something everyone can do. Even if it's not all done by yourself acquiring the skills & knowledge to do the tasks correctly (not just the quick hack methods) is helpful even if you end up having to hiring a job out since it means you have a better idea of what it is you're paying for to be done/bought.
