In not so many words, homesteaders learn to rely more on what they are able to produce for themselves on the homestead farm. There will be a need to buy basics such as flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, pasta, rice, and a few other essentials in order to prepare their own meals and also make preparations for the winter. After the first year or two, very little groceries should need to be purchased from town.

Homesteading can be hard work. A true homesteader plants a garden, raises a few animals for meat, may render their own Lard, bakes their own breads, pies and cakes; and stores food for the winter by means of butchering, canning, freezing, or the use of a root cellar. Many homesteader’s use a variety of these methods or all of them to preserve their food.

We have included a few of our own personal recipes below for your enjoyment. You may also wish to consider purchasing your very own homesteaders cookbook.
