The road that leads to Modern Homesteading is different for everyone. For some it is the answer to healing from a health crisis or diagnosis, for some, it's creating food security, for others, it's sustainability, and for others, it's answering a calling, something they're drawn to and for many of us, it's all of the above.
Co-founders Melissa K. Norris and Katie Millhorn have been homesteading for decades, but even living rurally (where you'd expect to find other homesteaders), they didn't realize how isolated they were from others actually living this lifestyle. While you might meet other backyard vegetable gardeners or chicken keepers, it's rare to find someone who is also preserving their food, making as much as they can from scratch and understands the excellent benefits of pasture-raised protein, grows and creates their families herbal medicine to fellowship with let alone learn from.
While homesteading is about sustainability, it's also about community, supporting one another, and learning from those who have gone before you. That's why we're inviting you to the first annual Modern Homesteading Conference, because we know how important it is to be in person, both for learning but also for your heart.
