Making The Homesteading Life The New Normal With Guest Jen Sharpin

On today’s podcast, I’m joined by Jen Sharpin from Jen Shares with us about her Journey from no homesteading experience living in Florida to a 15-acre homestead in South Carolina to a 45-acre homestead in Virginia.

Jen and I discuss the homesteading life and several other topics like:

  • Her family’s bold jump into the homesteading lifestyle.
  • The unfortunate events that opened up her eyes to a lifestyle change.
  • Her motivations for sharing their homesteading journey on her blog.
  • The problems with today’s food systems.
  • The plans her family has to share their healthy food with others by operating a small commercial farm.
  • Advice for beginner homesteaders.

“This magical, marvelous food on our plate, this sustenance we absorb, has a story to tell. It has a journey. It leaves a footprint. It leaves a legacy. To eat with reckless abandon, without conscience, without knowledge; folks, this ain’t normal.” ―Joel Salatin,Folks, This Ain’t Normal: A Farmer’s Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World
