    Begin Your Garden In a Box
    An American Homestead



    Published on Feb 16, 2017
    What a feeling it is to grow that first beautiful tomato. Or that first green pepper with a flavor unlike anything purchased in the store. The homestead box so far seems like a great way for that first time gardener to get started on this amazing journey of growing your own food.

    OFF GRID Meat Preservation - ONE YEAR LATER
    An American Homestead



    Published on Feb 22, 2017
    Is it possible to preserve meat without any refrigeration or canning? YES! We've had some success and failures along the way but mostly we have done a great job and saving harvested meat for our family.

    The videos listed below will show you how we have succeeded in curing our own homestead hard salami made with both venison and lamb. YOU CAN TOO! It's a pretty simple process and its as old as time itself.

    Spring or Winter? I can't tell
    An American Homestead



    Published on Feb 23, 2017
    We are having great weather and so I'm out in the garden getting some things done that I need to get done before spring actually gets here. It's still too early to be planting but work in the garden is an ongoing process.

    Stay tuned for upcoming videos on our soil workup and what seeds we will be planting this year. We are looking forward to a great garden once again this year to add to our amazing record of success.

    Your Battery Bank NEEDS THIS!
    An American Homestead



    Published on Feb 24, 2017
    The Battery Life Saver has probably been the best $120 bucks I've spent at keeping my solar battery bank in operating condition. Don't believe the so called experts who say it won't work. Read the reviews. My battery plates are clean after 4 years of abusive performance.

    All of our wiring diagrams are available on our website for free download in case you want to know how we have our BLS hooked up to our battery bank.

    I would highly recommend the BLS system if you are thinking about a solar powered battery bank.

    Re-Investing On Your Homestead
    An American Homestead



    Published on Mar 2, 2017
    We've been living off grid now for over 4 years. One thing we've learned along the way is that many people in the world enjoy buying toys for themselves or for their hobbies. Homesteading is not a hobby. It's not a part time job that i can show up to only half the time. We are fully invested and we put money back into this homestead to keep it running and maintained. You won't find us taking glamour vacations to Disney or Universal Studios. You won't find us buying expensive toys unless they are specifically being used to further the goals of the family and homestead.

    Instead of feeding into the consumerism mindset, feed into your family, the home they live in and their future ability to provide for themselves.

    Don't Buy The WRONG Kitchen Pump
    An American Homestead



    Published on Mar 3, 2017
    Through a lot of trial and error, we have finally discovered a kitchen pump that works well off grid and meets our needs. See all the wrong pumps to avoid and why to avoid them. See the prices of the pumps on the market today!

    There is not a lot of demand for quality pitcher pumps these days. But for those of us looking to bring in our own water rather than pay for fluoridated and chlorinated water provided by local utilities, it becomes an area of renewed focus.

    Stop! Don't Buy THIS For Your Homestead!
    An American Homestead



    Published on Mar 7, 2017
    This is one of the mistakes we made when starting our homestead and one you also can avoid. Burgess Seed and Plant Company and other companies like it have horrible reviews from angry customers upset at the quality of the products that were shipped to their homes.

    Better Business Bureau LINK: https://www.bbb.org/central-illinois/...

    One of the first things new homesteaders do is plant fruit trees. DON'T BUY FROM BURGESS or any other company that ships VARIOUS live trees or plants. Find a local nursery nearby OR order live plants from a company that specializes in only certain plants.

    At the very least, always look at the online reviews for companies online.

    Starting Garden Seeds Off Right
    An American Homestead



    Published on Mar 13, 2017
    Spring planting is a big time for the homestead. Over the next few weeks, we will literally be planting a years worth of food. It's important to start your seeds off right for your garden.

    Purchased organic seed starting mixes will do wonders at getting your plants growing strong. You're nutrient rich garden soil will do the majority of the heavy lifting.

    We start our seeds in paper towels and sandwich baggies and then move them to small pots for a short time indoors to grow before being transplanted into the garden.

    After a number of attempts at hunting and killing my first coyote this year, I have come up empty. It was my first year but not my last year of taking up predator hunting.

    Hunting these predators is necessary for keeping livestock pressures low. Carver Predator Calls looks like a top notch company and their products look like to be high quality craftsmanship.

    FINDING WATER Before You Buy Land
    An American Homestead



    Published on Mar 24, 2017
    Many emails from viewers ask us what is the biggest concern to address before starting a homestead. The Answer is making sure you can find water on the land you purchase. Don't purchase land without having multiple sources of water on it.

    One easy way to find water on your land is to look for certain trees that require moderate or extreme amounts of water to survive. IF YOU CAN FIND A SYCAMORE on potential land, YOU HAVE WATER and usually lots of it.

    Your Chickens ARE GONNA DIE!!
    An American Homestead



    Published on Apr 2, 2017
    Time after time we hear about a predator getting to someones chickens. A hole in the wall was found and exploited to gain access and chickens died. Or a snake got into the coop and was found in an egg box. (By the way, having Guineas in your flock will keep snakes away!)

    You must think of your chicken or turkey coop like a fortress or a castle that is constantly under bombardment and siege from the enemy. Then build your coop with that in mind. Your chickens will thank you!

    Using A Berkey Filter For 8 Years!
    An American Homestead



    Published on Apr 6, 2017
    THIS IS NOT A PAID ENDORSEMENT! We have been using the Berkey water filter system for eight years now. The last 5 years have been off grid on our homestead.

    Ozark summers are harsh and we live without air conditioning. We consume a LOT of water during the summer months and we needed a Berkey filter that would keep up with our demand.

    We decided to upgrade to the Crown Berkey with its 6 gallon capacity to keep us refreshed during the summer. Here's to eight more years!

    Off Grid Solar Kiln by Tuftex
    An American Homestead



    Published on Apr 13, 2017
    We were contacted last year by the makers of Tuftext Panels about any upcoming projects they could help us with. We informed them that we had plans of a solar kiln to be built on the property to work in conjunction with our saw mill. The Tuftex material would be a perfect fit for our solar kiln and they shipped us some supplies.

    This particular solar kiln is the brainchild of Virginia Tech and the plans are available for free online.

    Tuftex Panels: http://tuftexpanel.com/
    Solar Fan: http://www.ussunlight.com/products/so...

    The Solar Kiln will house between 750-1000 board feet of cut lumber. The building is fully insulated. We used mostly reclaimed lumber for the framing. The inside of the outside walls are treated with used motor oil/diesel mix for a preservative. The outside is painted with a latex waterproof exterior paint.

    Can You Make It As A Homesteader?
    An American Homestead



    Published on Apr 19, 2017
    Many people who set out to homestead end of failing and calling it quits. We have seen numerous families admit that the job was too hard or that the homesteading adventure just wasn't what they expected. We receive lots of emails to the same effect.

    Number One is that you must have a vision and be up for the hard work of making your land produce for you. Jaimie and I talk about some of what we have experienced after almost 5 YEARS OF LIVING OFF GRID.

    The Battle For Your Orchard - Cedar Rust
    An American Homestead



    Published on Apr 27, 2017
    We find Cedar Rust near our apple trees. One of the first things that new homesteaders do is make a trip out to the Big Box stores and buy some fruit trees. Fruit and nut trees growing to maturity takes time. But just like your garden, your trees can come under attack. Sometimes these attacks are more devastating depending on the type of trees you are growing. Learn what grows well in your area.

    Your Fishing Pond - THE DIRTY TRUTH!
    An American Homestead



    Published on Apr 28, 2017
    We were so excited to have an already stocked fishing pond on our homestead when we moved here! But little did we know that owning a pond is a lot of work and will require maintenance on a yearly basis. Keeping trees away from your banks, monitoring the parasite load on your fish, keeping the water weeds at bay, etc.

    Owning a pond can be fun and enjoyable. But like anything, if you want the pond to provide food for your family, there will be work and maintenance involved.

    Will You Fix THAT If SHTF? NOPE!
    An American Homestead



    Published on May 3, 2017
    Some parts of the Ozarks received over a foot of rain in the last week. Needless to say there has been a lot of rain damage and road and bridge washouts as a result.

    QUESTION, if "the excrement has collided with the rotary oscillator" (SHTF), how do you think these things will be repaired? Many of them will never get fully repaired. That's part of the trade-off with living off grid on land that not many people want to live on. It means FREEDOM!

    YouTube HATES YOU - HERE'S PROOF! And How I Would Fix It.
    An American Homestead



    Published on May 11, 2017
    There are more and more reports of videos being de-monetized on homesteading and gun channels. We have had a number of our videos de-monetized but we've only lost one appeal. I am very angry about this video they age restricted EVEN THOUGH YOUTUBE clearly said it did not violate community guidelines.

    What's the point in having rules if you're still going to penalize the people who follow them? Many top channels with conservative politically incorrect content have been feeling the pinch lately of their videos being de-monetized.

    I show you in this video PROOF that conservative channels are being penalized based on their content and viewpoint. I ALSO GIVE MY OPINION ON HOW WE CAN POSSIBLY FIX IT.

    A Tale Of Two WELLS - And Future of YOUTUBE
    An American Homestead



    Published on May 14, 2017
    The homestead already had two previously dug wells on the land. The former owner alluded that the wells had been dug maybe around the 1850's by one of the original land owners. So far, neither of these wells have gone dry and always have plenty of water in them. Imagine the history of these wells. Who used them? who built them. It's an amazing untold story we will probably never know.

    Plus we have decided how to proceed with the future of our channel. I think we have found a solution that will make most people happy.

    GROWING BANANA PLANTS In The Ozarks? LET'S FIND OUT!
    An American Homestead



    Published on May 17, 2017
    The cold hardy California Gold banana plant produces and edible fruit and can survive temps of 20 degrees and maybe lower with protection. Banana plants are made of mostly water and so if they freeze, they will turn to mush and die. The Musa Basjoo banana plant will survive temps down to around -3 degrees but will not produce edible fruits.

    I am first going to experiment with the California Gold variety and it the protection works, I will try other cold hardy fruit producing varieties. If all else fails, I will fall back on the Musa Basjoo as an ornamental for the homestead.

    I think one of the things that misleads people learning about gardening methods such as Back To Eden or Lasagna layering is that you will virtually eliminate weeds. This is absolutely untrue. Seeds for weeds will come in with your layers or they will blow in from the wind or they will push thru your layers to get to sunlight.

    The simple truth is that weeds are always going to attempt to gain a foothold in your garden and it's always going to your job to keep it under control.
