Homesteading and Market Gardening With Guest Jason Smith

Jason, his wife Megan, and his daughter have been homesteading for a number of years and run an on-farm market that sells to local restaurants in the Nashville area. They raise vegetables year-round using unheated greenhouses and on-farm inputs to create better soil and also have laying hens they use for eggs.

They can food, heat their house using a wood stove, and have become very thrifty over the years. They have a very successful homestead but it didn’t happen overnight. It’s had its challenges and they love sharing their experiences so other folks can benefit from it and want to share and inspire folks to homestead.
