Just like in years past, we need to move quick to plant and harvest as much food as possible before the growing season is over. Season 3 kicks off with a audience giveaway with more to come. We have lots of ongoing projects underway here at the homestead that include an outdoor kitchen, saw mill pavilion and solar kiln among other projects. Not only that but we have new meat production getting started with our turkey flock this year that should produce a lot of food for the homestead.
In this episode, we visit Shalom Acres and help them butcher one of their grass fed steers. Butchering a cow by yourself can be a chore and it’s good to have some help. It takes practice to process meat efficiently but anyone can learn and the savings is well worth the effort.

People often marvel at our garden and the amount of food it is able to produce. It literally feeds my family throughout the year.
