Homesteady - Stories of homesteading farming hunting and fishing
About This Show
Have you ever dreamt of starting a farm? Do you picture living on a homestead, gardening and raising chickens? Do you love foraging for wild edibles? Do you spent the fall season, in the crisp autumn wood hunting for wild game? Is your perfect morning spent drifting downriver, fishing for the night's dinner?
Homesteady is a show that focuses on living a more sustainable life. We talk about all the ways a modern Homesteader can put food on the table, from the fields, streams, gardens and woodlands. Our roads may be rocky, but with the right skills and knowledge we can make Homesteady.

Why You Should Be Planting Fruit Trees and Bushes On Your Homestead
5 days ago
Trees are a generational gift. There is significant symbolism associated with trees. Trees have signified wealth throughout history. Having your own tree meant prosperity. On this episode of Homesteady, we are focusing on fruit trees. In focusing on fruit trees, and planting fruits, we are expanding upon the idea of "bearing fruit" to a discussion of assets and liabilities. Assets put money in your pocket; liabilities take money out of your pocket. Making connections between wealth, a homesteading lifestyle, and the practical steps you can take to leave the rat race, and the hands-on work of raising animals, planting plants, and building infrastructure is part of the Homesteady culture. To this end, we'd like to bring you a quote from the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Aust learns the following important lesson: You must know the difference between an asset and a liability. But what does this have to do with fruit trees? It's like planting a tree. You water it for years; then one day it doesn't need you anymore. It's roots are planted deep enough. The tree provides shade for your enjoyment."- Robert Kiyosaki, Rich Dad Poor Dad As homesteaders, we want even more than shade. We want the work we do each year to result in greater and greater yields. Our guest tonight, Dave Hunt of Northeast Edible, shares how his passion for fruit trees and feeding his family better led to planting fruit trees, then to a homestead-based fruit tree business. Learn everything you need to know about how to choose plants, where and when to plant them, and the timeline from planting to having a harvest.
