All across America, modern pioneers are quietly tending their homesteads and reclaiming their self-sufficiency, independence, and health. In ‘The Homestead Documentary’ you can get an intimate look at the homesteading movement sweeping the country as we share personal interviews telling real and raw stories of everyday families who have embraced the simple life. If you’re like us, you want to live a more simple, sustainable life. The frantic, “plugged-in” pace of modern life has lost its appeal and you long to go back to simpler times.

The good news is that it might be easier than you think.

You don’t have to wait for the right time, to move onto acres of land in the middle of nowhere, you can make it work for you right now, and these homesteaders will show you how to reclaim your health, your independence, and focus on true sustainability no matter where you live.

Discover inspiration to live healthier, raise your own food, and create a homestead that fulfills you!
