You Might Be A Homesteader If...


Sparrow SinclairDo you sometimes have doubts about your homesteading identity? Perhaps you lay awake at night fretting over whether you qualify as a True Homesteader? Well fear not my friends as there are plenty of ways to tell if you or someone you love is indeed a homesteader. From leaving a trail of dirt everywhere you go to chasing down your neighbors with an armful of tomatoes, we homesteaders have a way of sticking out from the normies. Here are the top 18 ways to tell, once and for all, if you just might be a homesteader.

1. Your winter perfume is called Viva La Smoke, thanks to your occasionally uncooperative wood burner. You know you have applied just the right amount when people around you start sniffing the air and remarking they are hungry for barbecue. (Personally, I prefer the summer scent: Soil & Sweat Eau De Toilette)

2. Your husband’s year-round cologne is called A La Essence of Gasoline. You accidentally borrow it sometimes.

3. Mud haunts you.

4. Compost completes you.
