How To Homestead When You Can’t Afford It


How To Homestead When You Can't Afford It

Each year more and more Americans are choosing to homestead, but along the way some discover that it is far more expensive than they envisioned.

That was the case with homesteader Teri Page, who along with her husband discovered they couldn’t afford to own a large piece of land in their state – and so they moved cross-country. Once at their new location, they employed a series of cost-cutting measures that would surprise even seasoned homesteaders.

Page is this week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio, and she tells us:

  • What type of inexpensive house they chose to build.
  • Why they decided not to set up a running water system.
  • How they chose the state where they now live.
  • Why living near the Amish has benefited their off-grid life.
  • How they make money, off-grid, using the Internet.

Finally, Page shares with us her tips for anyone who is looking to move to another state for an off-grid life. If you are wanting to homestead, or you simply enjoy listening to stories from adventurous people, then don’t miss this week’s show!

  1. I wanted to add you on to my podcast subscription feed but I can’t find you. Are you not on there?
    Thank you!

  2. My son and I just listen to this radio show. We both look at each other and said hey that’s just like us. We have been off grid for seven years. We don’t have solar yet but are working on it. We do run a generator about an hour a day. This was another great show that I really enjoyed.

  3. I don’t have hardly any money to get started building a home sted. I am a single father and also disabled and , about to be HOMELESS. However my family has 60 acres of woods. Which would be a perfect spot to build a self sustainable homestead. I AM FROM TRUMANN, Arkansas. Please I am begging for someone to help me. And show me how to get started. I have got about $1500 to get started with. PLEASE HELP A SINGLE DAD IN DESPERATE NEED. THANK YOU, AND GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU WHO CAN DO EVEN A LITTLE SOMETHING. GOD BLESS

  4. I agree, wading through a video is a waste of time, I usually delete them rather than wasting the time.
