Homesteading for the last 20 years we like to think we’ve gained some experience & homestead knowledge. However, each year we have to look up certain information that we never seem to retain. Each & every year. Year after year. Feel my pain?
How great would it be to have all that information at your fingertips & not have to take the time each year to refresh the memory? Pretty great in our humble opinion.
When given the opportunity to review (& become an affiliate) for Chelsea’s book, “The Ultimate Homesteading Basics Book”, we didn’t hesitate to accept.

THE ULTIMATE HOMESTEADING BASICS BOOK – TAKEAWAYS
If there were any resource we had access to when we first began homesteading almost 20 years ago it would be this one. Answers to just about any common homesteading endeavors can be found within this basics book, & if the answer is not within it, it’s linked to a source to help you find that answer.
This book is easy to follow, direct without a lot of the glut found in so many sources. Instead it contains a wealth of information that any beginner or seasoned homesteader can easily refer to (or in our case refer back to yearly 🙂 ) at any point in their homesteading journey.
Affordable & useful, “The Ultimate Homesteading Basics Book”, is one that is a welcomed addition to anyone’s library. Ours included!
