Most Americans are two to four generations removed from the land, relying solely on grocery stores to provide their food. Stores make the food cheap and they make it look like we have plenty! Yet, 42 million Americans struggle to put food on the table. 1 in 6 people in America face hunger. Meanwhile, 40% of the food from the grocery stores is thrown out in the US every year, or about $165 billion worth. At the same time, Americans spend more than 40 billion dollars on buying the best grass seeds, the best fertilizers and the best lawnmowers to have a perfect lawn. 30% of the water on the East Coast is used on watering the lawns, more than 7,000 Americans are injured each year while using a lawnmower, more than 7 billion birds and bees are killed each year by the pesticides used to maintain the lawns.

We suggest you plan a short vacation and book the guest house.
We turned our guest house into a homestead to mimic your home and backyard.
With all the knowledge you have acquired over the last few days, start homesteading !
You can now produce your own food. You don't depend on the grocery stores anymore. You know the source of your food. You are self-sufficient!
