The Citystead is the journey of my family transforming our zone 5b/6a Michigan backyard into an urban homestead.
This year we are taking the leap into trying to start a small farm business. We are working on using our land to start a garlic farm. I'm documenting the whole process for others who might be in my situation where they want a farm business but have to travel and be away from the farm at times.
Our kids are very involved in our gardening, and we have set up many different areas to keep them entertained and wanting to be out side playing as much as possible. Everything from a bushcraft grape teepee to our bean tent, we even have a secret forest corner for them to explore.
You may be dreaming about that farm or homestead with tons of land, but we want to show you what is possible on a smaller scale with the space you currently have.
