Homesteading is not new but with the development of modern homesteading, it has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is perfect for those wanting self sufficiency.

Homesteading Teaches Self-Sufficiency for all Occasions

A primary benefit of homesteading is that it teaches you to be self-sufficient and more prepared to deal with what life may throw at us. By being able to produce your own food, energy and cleaning products, you are much less reliant on others. As a result, if something happens that cuts your supply of any of the goods you usually rely on, it’s not a big problem as you can adapt and produce them yourself.

The type of situations that make homesteading a great benefit include natural disasters, civil insurrection, pandemics (the COVID-19 being a good example) and anything else that massively disrupts society.

Homesteading Saves Money

One of the main benefits of homesteading is that it reduces your expenses and allows you to live a more frugal lifestyle. While producing your own food, energy, cleaning products and more does often require some heavy initial investment in the long run, it’s a lot cheaper.

It Is Good For You

Another fantastic benefit of homesteading is that it’s good for you. By producing your own foods, you can ensure that they’re free of the harmful chemicals and preservatives that are found in most mass produced food. Likewise, by producing your own natural cleaning solutions, you eliminate unnatural chemicals from your home and create an environment where your body is only exposed to natural, health boosting plant based products. Finally, the homesteading lifestyle is generally much less stressful than the typical rat race and as a result, you actually enjoy life and avoid stress related health disorders.

Homesteading Is Enjoyable

As mentioned above, homesteading is a relaxing, low stress lifestyle. Most people spend their time rushing through life, chasing money and instead of enjoying themselves, they’re left feeling stressed and unfulfilled. The homesteading lifestyle allows you to slow down, live in the present and enjoy being out in nature and providing for yourself. Many people find this relaxing, slower paced lifestyle much more fun and fulfilling and as a result, they get a much greater life experience by turning to homesteading.

Homesteading Helps The Environment

By living a more self-sufficient lifestyle, you give the environment a huge helping hand. For example, producing your own food eliminates waste products and packaging. Likewise, producing your own energy is much less damaging to the environment than the mass production and consumption of fossil fuels. Finally, the homesteading lifestyle promotes spending more time outdoors and using less electricity which means you leave a much smaller environmental footprint.


If homesteading is something you have considered, you can see, it has many positive aspects, will definitely improve your quality of life and help when you need to rely upon yourself.
