About Homesteading

People don’t get it.

They wonder why in the world you would want to keep a bunch of headstrong goats and chickens pooping everywhere!?

They don’t get it. I love working on our homestead!

True at times it can get messy, unorganized, and chaotic, but it isn’t always that way. There is so much order and value in the long run.

There is always something to be done, and something new to learn. No one can say the homesteading life is boring. :-)

Not to mention all of that healthy delicious food you are going to be harvesting for your family.

Why Do We Enjoy It So Much?

We were created to! Yes, God made us to take dominion of His creation.

“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’” --Genesis 1:28 NKJV

“He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth.” --Psalm 72:8 NKJV

God placed us here to subdue His creation. To bring all things under His feet for His glory.

May Reform Stead help you:

  • Research well
  • Inspire your kitchen endeavors
  • Thrive in your gardening
  • Love your country projects
  • Raise skillfully your chickens and goats...

All to make your homestead productive and beautiful, as we endeavor to take dominion of God's creation.

Happy Homesteading! :-)
