Since some years we notice that people who want to buy a piece of land and who want to live in a self sustainable way, have a lot of questions about how to start and what to expect.
Homesteaders to be, want to know things like:
What kind of land is best to buy?
Where am I going to buy land?
How do I make money?
What practical skills do I need? Where can I learn these skills?
Because we are some steps ahead from just starting to live self-sustainable, we could help people to find answers to their questions and help them by to where we are at the moment.
What does ‘The Homesteaders Consultant’ offer?
– We put our experiences in blogs and share these on our website and on social media. Every fortnight we send out a mailing with information -about our newly made blogs.We are offering a consultancy service, where we can give tailormade answers to questions that people have about starting a homestead, small farm, croft, family farm…
