Shows of An American Homestead are released usually once a week on Monday morning. All episodes can be watched on youtube or on the An American Homestead website.
This season, summer is here and the homestead is gearing up for the fall harvest. The garden is in full swing, construction projects are being completed and fall lambing season should hopefully be producing some new additions before winter. New challenges are facing these new homesteaders as they deal with the extreme southern summer heat and forgo the modern conveniences of American city living.
The two families have sheep, a guard donkey named Tilly (short for Matilda), chickens, and guinea hens, and they raise blue gill fish.
Additionally this season, Zac and Tim need to decide what animals will be showing in the coming county fair this year. Jaimie and her mother Joanne will be busy in the kitchen canning up all of the goodies the harvest provides as well as testing out a new pressure canner and stainless steal steam juicer.
This season we also get to meet some of their neighbors and friends as they stop by to visit and together plan for the fall feast known as Sukkot.
Trials and tribulations are what’s in store for those brave enough to leave the bustling city life in search of a more simple one. But will what they find actually be simple? We will find out!
