Start Here

Hey! Whether you’re a new visitor or a familiar face, perhaps you’d like a quick run-down of what you can expect to find here at Homestead and Chill, and even better – how to easily find it!

To browse by topic, check out the main menus and sub-categories. For example under the “Food & Ferment” drop-down, you can find an entire “Sourdough” section – with articles on how to start your own sourdough starter from scratch, or make a simple loaf of bread. Or, the “How to Grow” section of the Garden menu for instructions on how to grow carrots, potatoes, radishes, turmeric, and more.

Not feeling up to hunting through the menus? Below is a list of our top articles – all in one place, organized by subject! Simply click on any of the links and dive in.

If you’re interested in gardening, you’re going to love this free Homestead and Chill Garden Planning Toolkit (click to get your 22-page garden planner via email). It has a companion planting chart, growing tips, and planting calendars for every hardiness zone! Finally, if you’re curious to see our favorite garden and kitchen tools used to keep this little modern homestead running, pop by our Amazon Storefront to browse by category – such as compost, kombucha, books, chickens, and more.

Above all, thank you so much for being here!
