I was about 15 years old when I decided I wanted to do everything homesteading. Together with my parents, I wanted chickens, milk goats, a garden, and a Jersey, I wanted to learn the all the skills involved. To live the homesteading life was my dream! I made it my secret goal to grow everything our family of eight, ate! The problem was—I didn't know how. I knew what I wanted. I knew what I wanted the end goal to be, but I didn't know where or how to start. 

I read lots of homesteading books and websites—everything I could get my hands on. We got some chickens, then a goat. Now, several years later—we're homesteading! Perfectly? No. Is all of our food coming from our land? Not yet, but we're getting closer. We get eggs, vegetables, goat's milk, and hopefully soon cows milk, from our backyard. After all the hard work and trials of the day, it's so satisfying to serve up dinner and say with the family, “The meal on our plates came from the backyard!” We're doing it! We're homesteading. 

Many people dream of living the homestead life too, but it's not easy. It takes knowledge. You need to know where to start. You need to know how to think in a way that looks long-term, with a consideration for all of the parts of your homestead. Homesteading isn’t an unattainable dream. You can live your own homesteading life too! The Holistic Homestead is a vision casting book to get you started on your own natural, holistically-minded homestead journey. A homestead that really succeeds.

Homesteading Doesn't Have to Be So Hard...



A Homesteading book for beginners and advanced alike! Grow your own sustainable, permaculture type of homestead that considers every aspect, with a plan and goal for the future. Soli Deo Gloria!

You want to homestead...the problem is unless you have a holistic mindset (a mindset that considers the whole of something) you're not going to make it successfully. One thing I've learned is you must take your entire homestead into consideration at all times--otherwise you will miss something and there'll be a hole in your homestead. 

The sad thing is, most homesteading books miss this key factor. The big over-view homesteading books get so caught up in the nitty gritty details of the individual parts, they forget everything else on your homestead. You need a homestead that's holistic

But what if you had a book that taught you how to think holistically on your own and then gave you countless examples to practically show you how it's done?

My goal in writing The Holistic Homestead was not to give you the same often-repeated, simple information you can read in any homesteading book or website. I tried to go far beyond that. I wanted to lay out for you how you can think holistically on your own. Then, I present a display of what that can look like in even the little things of the homesteading life. The theme throughout the entire book is learning how to see and make connections! I demonstrate how you can have a holistically minded homestead. One that considers every aspect, with a plan for the whole and goal for the future. Soli Deo Gloria! (Glory Be to God Alone!)

I'm learning things I didn't know! I grew up on a farm, and some of these things we did, but I never knew the why. Now I do! Julia has done an excellent job researching for and writing this book. It will help you make the most of your homestead, whether large or small. This will make a great addition to every homesteader's library." -Naomi M.

A Method of Thinking That Sets
You Up for Success

Learn how to think. Learn to see your homestead as a system and know how to best put all of the parts and pieces in their places. Think of this: when the pieces of a car are put together correctly, the car runs smoothly. When there’s a problem with one of the pieces, the whole car can be dysfunctional. You need a homestead “car” that more than functions—one that runs smoothly.

How to Lay a Firm Foundation for
Long-Term Success

This book shows you how to think past the end of the week. You'll establish your goals and know what you need to do to get to them. You'll learn how to make an investment now so over time you will reap the rewards! First you need to build that firm foundation.

Better Than Organic Gardening
& Pest Control Techniques

I'll show you how to get started turning your garden into one that's better than organic. We're going to delve into the soil microbes and learn how to treat and nurture them for vegetables that contain more vitamins, minerals and nutrients than organic store-bought produce. Then we're going to get to the bottom of things and see how you can keep destructive pests away from your garden, based uponyou'll never guesshealthy microbes in the soil!

Info That's Hard to Find About
Raising Chickens

Every homesteader has chickens. They are often the first animal of homesteaders. In this book we're going past the basics again and looking at how chickens can fit into our "homestead puzzle". We're going to see what they can give to the homestead besides eggs and meat. We'll find ways to put them to work, talk about growing all of their feed, and even go over natural chicken health care--herbs. 

Things You Haven't Heard About
Milk Cows & Goats

I'm going to show you several things you probably don't know about cows and goats. We're going to talk about A1 and A2 genetics, grazing genetics, grains or no grains, and other related topics. No, this is not a hand book on everything you need to know about goats and cows, but rather everything you need to know about them that you won't find in most other homesteading books. 

How to Make Your Own Natural Remedies for Farm Animals

Learn to make your own natural DIY herbal remedies for your animals! I have a whole chapter devoted to this. I go over the main ingredients, tell you why I use them, and then follow it by a few of the infections and sicknesses our animals have had and what we did to get them better. These examples can help you decide what to do when your animal gets sick. Then I follow that with several how-to remedies. Very practical and one of my favorite chapters! I've tried to find things like this online and in books, and had trouble finding anything of quality. Some of that hard-to-find info can be found in this book.

 About the Author...

Hi! I’m Julia. The girl behind the blog ReformStead.com. I write about all things homesteading. Raising chickens, gardening, from-scratch cooking, milking goats and more. I've seen the need for high-quality homesteading info and literature, presented in an, at least a semi-professional way, and that's how ReformStead.com and my book, The Holistic Homestead came about. 

The most important thing is my life though is honoring and serving my King, Jesus Christ and learning to make the Bible the guiding light of my life.

By His sovereignty, I’m a homeschool graduate and live with my parents and five younger siblings in Phoenix, Arizona. We live on 2.5 acres, with HOT summers, cacti and amazing sunsets! Each morning I wake up my siblings and we head out for farm chores. Some may think my life sounds hard and boring, but I assure you, it’s not. (although the hard part is true sometimes. =) ) I wouldn't trade my life for anything—I love every bit of it!
