  1. Just wondered if y’all knew that a mormon.org site is advertised on your site. Was under one of the “visit our sponsors”

    Shalom! <3

  3. Zac –

    We are also homesteaders with my wife and I homesteading 30 acres at the edge of the Applachian Mountains. We like your channel immensely and watch it on ROKU. I am sure you are familiar with this but if not here is a heads up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronic_wasting_disease. As a hunter I am also sure you know not to shoot a deer in the head nor to harvest any animal with any kind of head wound. Other precautions are covered in the Wiki article.

    Also, FYI- Elon Musk is investing billions of his dollars building the world’s largest battery factory in Nevada. The idea is to reduce the costs of the battery packs in his Tesla electric cars by 10 to 1. He is also opening sales of these packs to everyone. These will be available in about 36 months, and will have a profound effect on off-grid solar. These packs will be sealed, no maintenance units capable of storing between 15 and 40 thousand watts for the cost of a few hundred dollars [300?].

    God bless.

    • Wow, I’m very interested in the battery information! Please keep us updated!

      • Zac,
        Have you ever checked out IronEdison? Nickel/iron batteries have a very very long life span and use caustic soda electrolyte. Invented in the early 1900’s some of them are still in service.

    • I am also very interested in the battery info as I live in Nevada! Ruth Willhite

    • Zachary – Per your request. This was on Google’s news portal today. I wonder if contacting Tesla and telling them who you are and inviting them to look at your channel might lead to their support in exchange for testing their product. Wouldn’t hurt to try!

      Hope all is well with your family. We are suffering from American Homestead withdrawal since we have seen and reseen all the episodes, both on You Tube and Netflix.

      Tesla will introduce a new product line separate from cars on Thursday, April 30 at 9 PM PT according to founder and CEO Elon Musk. The executive tweeted the news from his account on Monday, but so far has shared no other details bout what might be in the works.
      Musk has previously gone on record saying the company is gearing up to produce a new battery to power people’s homes instead of just their cars. During the company’s most recent earnings call in February, he revealed that the consumer battery pack for home use could enter production in as few as six months. This new category could well be this home battery, since the timing fits.
      A Tesla home battery could be useful as a backup in case of outages, for homes located off-grid, or as a storage solution for customers using solar power collection installations in their homes.
      Of course, Musk could be referring to something else entirely – we’ll know by the end of next month what exactly Tesla has up its sleeve.

    • “These packs will be sealed, no maintenance units capable of storing between 15 and 40 thousand watts for the cost of a few hundred dollars”

      When I see it, I’ll believe it.

  4. my husband and I enjoy your show thank you for blessing us with a lot of great ideas

  5. Do you have an email newsletter that can be subscribed too ? If so , I would like to sign up for it .
    Thanks

    I found your show on Roku. I’m telling my friends about it. I live in Las Vegas in a nice house and it is too much for me. Although I will never live off grid (I don’t think so anyway) I am inspired by you and your family to re-direct my lifestyle in the future. My son is trying to get me to go solar and I may consider it if I get a more “simple” house. Thank you for sharing your lifestyle. It’s such an inspiration. I am following on Facebook. I would like to add that the candles make me nervous. I had one start a small fire in my house. Maybe you guys could go solar on the lights? I’m watching with interest and inspiration. Thank you.

  7. Just found your show on Roku also. Love it. I am not sure if you are familiar with Misty Prepper but there is a ton of info she shares on line and in her videos that you guys would love too.

    I have to say I am absolutely in awe of the know-how and skills all of you posses and use on a daily basis to make your new way of life work. We will continue to watch what you put out here and love that you share the information on the products you do use because we may want to use some of them in the future ourselves.

    Do you foresee a cow in your future?

    • Thanks for watching! We’re so glad that you enjoy it! Yes, we definitely foresee a cow in our future. 🙂 We purposely decided to wait on a dairy cow because we had stretched ourselves so thin with so many other things. It was just too much to think about adding another thing to the “to do” list every day. Perhaps next year. As of right now, we are able to get milk pretty regularly from friends nearby. 🙂

  8. I live in northwest AR., I use to live in southern Madison County, but now live in Washington County. Saw your you tube on spring pastures. Joel Saladin says don’t put manure on dormant pasture as the dormant roots and enzymes can’t use use so it either runs off in rain or evaporates. Have you seen his videos on you tube? He is a grass-growing guru. Please you don’t have to answer, I just wanted to share.

  9. Zach,
    Have you ever considered how you will communicate with others in WROL?
    I have been a Ham Radio Opperator for many years and can communicate with my group both locally and around the world.
    All my equiptment runs off 12 volts D.C. From my solar panels.
    Just something to think about.
    Feel free to contact me if you would like info how to get started.
    You can also go to, arrl.org
    Blessings, Heath N4TWT

  10. I’ve really enjoyed your videos and I’m looking forward to seeing next season! I had just a couple things to suggest. When watching the tomato-canning ones I thought you might want to try roasting them next summer. When I put up my tomatoes, I don’t peel them. I simply cut then in half, roast them cut-side up with olive oil, celtic salt and herbs. Once they’ve roasted pretty well they easily smash up with hardly any effort and can be canned or eaten as-is. The peels are tender and disintegrate into the flesh, so there is just nothing to it. And best of all they taste amazing because the flavor is so concentrated! It also works with cherry tomatoes since you don’t ever peel them. You could easily roast them in your pizza oven. Also, have you thought about doing sheep milk instead of getting a dairy cow? Sheep milk is way easier to digest than cow’s milk and even more so than goat’s milk. It might be something to consider since you already raise sheep. No need to answer; just thought I’d throw those thoughts out there!

    I am trying to enter your Sawyer Water filter contest. I hope this is the right place to do it.
    Love your site,
    EAH

  12. Hello, I read about your aquaponics & was intrigued, but was wondering what the benefit of doing the aquaponics is? I mean instead of just having your fish pond for fish & then doing a garden. Thanks! Amanda

  13. Love your show and all the information you are sharing. I have learned so much from your family. Thank you so much.
    God bless

  14. Zach and Jaime,
    Just want to say how much we enjoy watching and learning from your show. We currently own a small 2.5f acre homestead in south central Colorado and was hoping to stay here but have discovered that it wouldn’t be best to stay with water wars over rights and such so once my husband retires from the Army move further east. So we have 6 years to practice off grid homesteading and was wondering some of the things y’all have done before leaving the city behind and things you wish you had learned before setting out. We have already foregone the use of electric lighting and we do a huge garden each year and we have chickens. Thanks!

  15. My family are big fans of your show. Thank you for taking the time and putting in the effort behind all of these videos. I am fully behind what you your family is doing, living off grid must be an amazing experience. One question however, how are you handling situations like medical insurance? God forbid, but what happens if one of you are seriously injured and have to handle hospital expenses?

  16. I’ve been watching your show on our ROKU box. My wife and I purchased 35 acres a little over a year ago, but need to cross a creek to access it. A bridge is going to be expensive and I had been losing hope. Your show has been very inspiring and has renewed the vision for a homestead of our own. I’m looking forward to watching as your homestead progresses. May God continue to Bless your family!

    • Anthony Have you looked into railcar bridges? Sometimes they are cheaper. If your close to a railcar shop you should look into it. Railcar flatbeds are usually good for about a 20 foot spand. Hope this helps.

  17. We live currently in Florida and are looking for land in the Missouri Ozark area to homestead. Any particular reason you left Missouri for Arkansas? Also any tips you have on trying to find land in another state would be helpful.

  18. Thanks Zac and your family. I watch both An American Homestead and your New2Torah channel. Love both and just wanted to say thanks for your efforts in making both.
    God Bless you and your family

  19. I just finished watching your video on potato storage and root cellars. 6 years ago I added on to my house giving me a nice pantry and a root cellar. before I did this I stored my potatoes in a small storage room off my kitchen. there was a small vent and no heat. I had a chest freezer that gave off just enough heat so stuff didn’t freeze. the potato bin was just a pallet on the floor for ventilation and wood strips on the front that could be removed as I use the potatoes. they lasted very well and didn’t start sprouting until March. when I got the root cellar I used plastic totes with damp sawdust for the carrots. they would grow small roots but they seemed to be sweeter after they had been cold. I tried dry sawdust but it shriveled up the carrots. I absolutely love your youtube videos and some of the stuff you do verifies that what i am doing is right.
