Where homesteading wasn’t born Yesterday
Every living thing survives at the expense of another living thing. To honor that truth is to be humbled, connected and grateful.
Long before “homesteading” and “subsistence farming” were cool, a little girl was born on a two cow farm in Central Vermont. Joyce was raised by farm folk and learned traditional ways of living off the land.
Joyce followed a meandering path (with one bare toe always in the soil) which eventually led her back to the homestead where she grew up. Today she comes to share her heritage, education, experience and commitment to the land and to others longing to discover or deepen their connection with their homestead.
WCAX, Vermont’s own CBS affiliate, visited my homestead to talk about some fall topics for their News at 4 program, refreshing segments featuring “news you can use.”
Here are the segments we made and links to further information and recipes :
