# Starting a homestead
How We Would Start a Homestead in 2022 🌻🐐🐔 Encouragement To Get Started!
Starting a homestead can be very overwhelming. We want to encourage you to take it one step at a time. Don't put your drive to being self sufficient in a box because it can't fit into just one box. It's incredibly gratifying raising your own food, connecting with the Earth, and pledging to treat it with respect. We have all had successes and failures in dreaming up and creating our homestead. Please watch and learn from us!
