To see more of the best of the West's visit
























Building a Fence, till the Cows come Home


We are putting in a new fence for our cows, which are currently visiting our neighbors cows till the fence is done.

Setting posts. We use the post hole digger to make holes about 24" deep. Then we set in the 6' cedar posts and fill in the dirt around.


It was a beautiful sunny day, but the wind was pretty cold.




Most of the time, it takes two to do the job.


Our tool box.


Thinking about what to do next.

Howdy Y'all! Thanks for stopping to see us. As you can see this website is under construction, and hopefully will be fully functioning again soon. Don't let us scare you away, come again soon to see us! In the meantime please visit us at www.homestead-blessings.com/homestead-journal. Happy New Year!

We have a new website and blog!



Our old website was getting, well, old, and we wanted to to bring some new features to it that just weren't possible, so, we had a new one built!

The new site includes.

- A new blog, with all of the posts from this one, (we're now calling it Homestead Journal)
- A news page where you can stay in the know about events, sales & newly available or upcoming products!
- The product pages now include more information, such as the ability to preview all the tracks from our CDs. (were really excited about that!)
- A new site wide search, so you can find exactly what your looking for.
- There is now a page with all of our YouTube tips videos conveniently in one place!

And one more thing.  We now have a page were YOU can submit your homesteading hints for our readers to enjoy!

Well we hope you will all find something to enjoy on the new site and we'll see you there in our next blog post.

Blessings from the west ladies at Homestead Blessings.
