Keeping it “Au Naturale” on the Homestead



I do a lot of googling, y’all.  Please tell me you do too.

I google for just about everything in my life and for the most part, it works out pretty well.



I google a rash on my kids leg.  I google a problem a hen is having with her foot.  I google how to make zucchini waffles (they’re delicious by the way!).  You name it.  I’ll google it.

However, all this googling is getting TIME CONSUMING.  Sometimes I just want to go back to the good ol’ days where you open a book, read a couple of paragraphs, look at a picture and voila!  You have your answer.  (And if you don’t have the answer from a book…. well, you just forget about it!)



I’m excited to tell you that I now have one less topic to google about – natural remedies for my little ol’ homestead.

Do you follow the blog The Prairie Homestead – https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/gb.php?cl=147847&c=ib&aff=249672 ?  If not, you’re missing out on a whole lot of great homesteading information.



Jill Winger, who writes The Prairie Homestead, just came out with her newest ebook – Natural Homestead.   – https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/gb.php?cl=147847&c=ib&aff=249672



To quote Jill:



Natural Homestead – https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/gb.php?cl=147847&c=ib&aff=249672 is a 200-page PDF ebook that contains over 40 natural homesteading “recipes” and over 60 photos. It’s the first eBook that I know of to cover topics like homemade chicken feed, herbs for barnyard animals, natural non-toxic gardening pesticides, DIY fly sprays, and TONS more.

And here’s one more exciting piece of news…..a recipe that I wrote is featured in the book!  It the “boredom buster block” for chickens and it is pretty awesome (if I do say so myself).
