The internet community is amazing! At the click of a button, you can learn, teach, encourage, discover, and make friends.
Below I listed (in no particular order) some of my favorite homestead blogs. I’ve learned and continue to learn so much from these ladies. And that makes me think…how did we learn before there were blogs and websites? I guess we went to the library. Sort of like Maps on our iPhone now and way-back-when opening up a map on the hood of your car during a road trip.
I hope you enjoy these blogs as much as I do…you’ll find some great information, wonderful photographs, and delicious recipes.

Weed ’em & Reap
DaNelle and her family live on an acre ‘urban’ farm. Her about page sums up her blog beautifully…you’ll find the following articles on her site: practical farming, easy gardening, natural health, simple recipes, and home living. I’ve found so much practical advice here.
I also follow her on Instagram for her adorable photos!
I’ve learned a TON about chickens from Melissa. I especially love her coop tours. She has so much information on her site – I could get lost there for days!
oh, and her recipes!! They all look fabulous, but her breakfasts look supper yummy!
Because I’m a photographer, I also appreciate the beautiful photos that are through out her blog. Definitely check out her blog.
Lindsey and her young family are new homesteaders who are on a quest to produce 80% of their own food! We share our desire to have a more simplistic life with less clutter and stuff around the house.
She has some great (simple) recipes and an honest blogpost about their first rooster butchering experience…which is something that is rolling around in the back of my mind. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to raise chickens for meat, but we’ll see.
Talk about off the grid! Teri (of course I love her name!) and her cute little family live in a 350 square house. When they first moved to there, they lived without electricity for a year and a half and still live without running water!
I’ve learned so much from her and love her photos…she even offers coaching for beginners. Sounds like a great plan to me after we find our Muddy Fox Farm!
Country Life Experiment
I can relate to Jo because she started her blog before moving to her farm…just like me! oh, and she also loves her camera. We have a lot on common. 🙂 It’s fun following along on her journey and learning about their simple living, yummy recipes, gardening tricks and much more.
I hope you enjoy these blogs like I do. Please let me know if there are any other great ones that you follow!
