There are homesteaders. And then…there are homesteaders. There are those trying to be self-sufficient on 1/10 of an acre and those who have thousands of acres and haven’t been to a store in 16 years.

We live in the foothills in northern California, just up out of the valley. Our home resides at approximately 800 feet above sea level and we have 20 acres of a combination of steep terrain and a little semi-flat.
