I Bought my 'Homestead' To Be More Self-Sufficient, But I Didn't Have a PLAN...

New terra tinyWe bought New Terra Farm in June 2000 but then had to figure out WHAT TO DO with it!

If you found this page, you probably have real concerns about the future.  And right now it appears there are multiple actors around the world who seem intent on disrupting business as usual.

If I was the suspicious type,  I would think a few of our locally-grown elected whacko's are following the same game plan.

This is a worrisome reality.

More self-sufficiency is a worthwhile goal.

In good times and bad, nothing is more important than a secure food supply.

But, HOW?

How will you secure enough calories to sustain life for you and your family if supply chains are disrupted and the poop hits the proverbial fan?

If you came here from one of my other pages ('Pigs on Pasture', 'How to Raise Meat Chickens', 'Bootstrap Greenhouse') you have probably already seen some of what I'm about to share with you.

Bear with me, there's a reward at the end.

Way back in June of 2000, (just after the Y2K scare), I decided I had a responsibility to do more, learn more, be prepared more, to provide for my family.

We bought our farm and started learning how to feed ourselves in a sustainable and reliable way.

Once we had a little experience under our belts, I started writing about the things we had learned and done. I put 200 page of free content on the New Terra Farm website, explaining how we did things on our little farm.

I also decided to write some books, to help others become more prepared for whatever may come.

My books are all about 'How To Do It'!

I made some of those books free to download  - e.g 'Bootstrap Survival Garden'.

And I assembled some of my most popular books into 'bundles', to make them available at a great discount.

Just like this one.

Unlock the Secrets of Self-Sufficiency (And Save More Then 40%)  with My 'Homestead Book Bundle'!

Homestead Bundle 2023-12There are ELEVEN separate valuable information resources in the Best Value Book Bundle for homesteaders!

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced homesteader, my books will provide you with valuable information and insights.

These days, it's not just homesteaders that need the tools and skills to ensure the calories keep coming. 

No matter who and where you are, the goal should be the same: be as self-sufficient as you can on your own small property.

And while many 'old-fashioned' methods of gardening, animal husbandry, and home-scale construction are still valid, there are new appropriate technologies that can be applied to make the job easier.

There will always be sufficient work to do on your property without making it harder by refusing to use technology when it makes sense.

I am a big believer in taking advantage of the technologies while we have them, and at the same time planning for how I would do without them if necessary.

I've put together the books I believe any homesteader or anyone looking for more food security should have to become more self-sufficient and solve problems on their small property.

Seems Like a Big Challenge: How To Get More Security And Sustainability In Your Life?

Maybe you are worried about where your food will come from if disaster strikes.

Or maybe you are just interested in living a more self-sufficient and sustainable lifestyle.

It can seem like a huge problem to solve.

But, the way to solve any big problem is to break it down.

We did NOT start out on New  Terra Farm knowing all we know now. We built our operation piece  by piece.

We started by growing a garden, just to feed ourselves. This eventually became our market garden business.

We built some greenhouses to extend the season and increase our self-sufficiency.

We learned how to raise chickens, turkeys, and pigs on pasture, to stock up our freezers.

You can do the same, step-by-step, with my 'Homesteader Book Bundle'.

OK, But I Have Some Questions...

Q. I don't have a huge property, will these books still work for me?

A. Absolutely! All my plans and recommended cultural practices are scalable, whether you are working in a big back yard or the back 40!

Q. I've never raised small livestock before, are your books suitable for beginners?

A. You bet. We WERE those beginners. You get the benefit of what we have learned over the last 20 years of gardening and building and raising livestock. Our systems actually got SIMPLER over time, as we learned more.

Q. How 'handy' do I have to be to build your plans for chicken coops and greenhouses?

A. The good news is, I am NOT a professional carpenter! My designs are simple, no complicated joinery or tricky construction. Anybody can duplicate what we've built.

More than 2,000 people have bought my books and courses to help them build some RESILIENCE in their life. Here's what some of them had to say...

"Very clearly written and thorough" - Steve G.

"Fantastic reading, and it'll be really helpful when we start up our farm! - Katie W.

"Very well written. It seems that you have that gift of being able to transpose your thoughts onto paper with ease and simplicity" - Stephen W.

I read your meat chicken book and really wished I had it last year. It has already caused me to re-think and re-design next years plan. - Sherri, Dunville, ON

"Dan and I found your book inspirational and helpful. In fact, it took us from "hmmm ... this might be for us" to selling five garden shares 3 weeks later! We are 3 weeks or so from wrapping up year one and looking forward to year two and 25-30 shares! Thanks so much for your helpful programs that make planning our business almost and breeze
