Editor’s Note: There are lots of people who want to start a homestead and there are those who are already running theirs.

We’re firm believers and strong supporters of the homesteading movement.

Some of our contributing writers send us stories from their kitchen tables on their very own homesteads.

So, when our friends at Storey Publishing asked us to help promote their giveaway we happily signed on.

Storey is one of the foremost imprints for those of us interested in traditional farm skills such as, ‘home growing’ honeybees, hatching your own chicks, making hay, and even cooking with craft beer.

So their books should take an important place on any homesteaders’ book shelf.

Take a look, write your own story and see if you can grow your own homestead. You had better hurry, though, the contest ends as of 11:59 on March 31, 2014.
