This is a great site! I hadn't been in about a year and there is a lot more on the website now. If you enjoy such things, visit the Photo Gallery. I went to look around and stayed an hour I was having so much fun. Check out the food walls. That's a great way to fill the wall space!!
The people at this website wrote an article that appears in the current issue of Countryside Journal. It was an excellent article and site. They are doing very well at running a business from their homestead.

USDA government website. Small Farm - I like that. It took me a while to think of the term and sure enough, there it was. Not homesteading, not more and not less. Just a small farm. Super resource site!
This is the content site for Lehman's and it is packed full of great topics: homesteading and home, cooking & recipes, garden & herbs, dairy livestock, How-to-Articles and classifieds. Read through the discussion boards and find subjects of Off the Grid, Alternate Power, Composting Toilets, Home Builders and Living Without Electricity. Their non-electric page was my first site listing for this page.

This site is religious oriented so if you are offended, don't go here. They sell their own natural family baskets, herbs and botanicals. The site provides information on birth, babies, breastfeeding, being an Advocate of Homesteading, Homeschooling, Natural Foods, Organic Gardening, Raising Small Livestock. Just go look at Kiah's Krafts for Kids. I want to make some Tie Die Rocks. Those are awesome!

That is from their website. There is some very interesting information kept here especially if you have long been looking for a particular book. It is all for sale but it is most valuable since most of the knowledge is no longer being printed.
Very interesting site even though most of it has not been updated for at least a year. The links page is too old, you just go to a yahoo search. Lots of valuable information. Visit when you have time to browse and learn.
Site has lots of resource information to look through. They have a forums network but they request membership donations for support.
