Do you think it’s impossible to homestead where you live? These Inspiring Homesteads will show you the way. Each week we feature a new homesteader from across the globe. They will tell you how they do it. Get inspired!
For the sake of organization, homestead stories have been sorted by the size of the property. I do not believe homesteads can be defined as urban, suburban, rural, or farmstead by lot size alone, but that is a topic for a future post.
Urban homesteaders live on less than 1/2 an acre. Space is an obvious challenge for these homesteaders, but they won’t stop that from standing in their way.
Suburban homesteaders live on more than 1/2 an acre, but they still don’t have much room to spread out. Often “blending with the neighborhood” is an issue for these homesteaders.
Rural homesteaders have more than an acre to work with and often more freedom than their smaller homestead friends.
Farmsteads are homesteads of more than 5 acres. Whether the homesteader chooses to actually “farm” or not, they have the space to do so.
