    Off Grid Outdoor Kitchen Tour - SEE IT NOW!
    An American Homestead



    Published on May 19, 2017
    The need for an outdoor kitchen became apparent during summer months and the south's extreme heat. Hours and hours are spent canning the produce that will be the food for our family during the winter. Sorghum will be squeezed and and rendered into syrup for sugar in this kitchen.

    Jaimie gives a tour of the homestead out door kitchen and shows you how we have been using it since its completion.

    Podcast: ALL YOUR GARDENS ARE BELONG TO US - ILLEGAL
    An American Homestead



    Streamed live 14 hours ago
    I used the famous grammatically incorrect phrase to describe this weeks show. A town in Ohio of 6000 people has made gardening illegal and is also has made chicken ownership illegal. How long before this nonsense comes to your town? Will your garden be illegal?

    STEEMIT Just Kicked YOUTUBE In The SHINS! OUCH!
    An American Homestead



    Published on May 21, 2017
    We live on a farm and momma always told me to never put all your eggs in one basket. Youtube is treating its creators like unwanted step children and ruining the incentive for making great educational and entertaining content for our audience. So, we are looking around at alternatives.

    We've opened an account at STEEMIT and and a Crypto Wallet over at Coinbase to help us brave these new waters. We will still be putting out free content here at Youtube, but we are going to follow the many other channels who have moved to STEEMIT and post some of our amazing original content over there as well.

    When You BUY Livestock - DON'T DO THIS!
    An American Homestead



    Published on May 24, 2017
    Stop thinking of yourself as a goat or sheep farmer. You need to think of yourself as a GRASS farmer. If you have healthy grass and pastures, you will have healthy goats and sheep. The same goes for cows!

    BEWARE of commercialized breeds! We at first made the horrible mistake of trying to raise a commercial breed naturally with avoiding wormers and medicines. It did not end well.

    If you want to raise healthy strong grass fed animals, you need to find heritage breeds that can withstand not using modern livestock methods.

    Enjoy the video!

    Using Blackberry ROOTS To Treat Animal Scours-Diarrhea
    An American Homestead



    Published on May 29, 2017
    Treating Animal Scours-Diarrhea
    A couple of our new sheep has developed scours and it seems that there is an overwhelming amount of knowledge on how to treat this issue naturally. Many livestock owners will experience scours at some point and instead of reaching for the phone to call your local Vet or finding some expensive medication, maybe you can try blackberry root.

    I have found many articles online saying that this works! Plus our good friends over at the Youtube Channel "Shalom Acres have used this method successfully.

    Wal-Mart Fuel Cans and How To FIX Them
    An American Homestead



    Published on Jun 6, 2017
    Replace Fuel Can Spouts
    The new fuel cans being sold in stores these days are just ridiculous. They are a result of a US company going bankrupt in 2012. That company made most of the gas cans in the United States and around the world. It went bankrupt because of "stupid people"...something we have a lot of these days in America.

    So because of "stupid people" the gas cans they sell in Wal-Mart and other Chinamart stores, have ridiculous safety gadgets that basically result in a non-functioning gas can! But there is good news.

    The good news is that THIS IS AMERICA and we do have some bright people left. A few entrepreneurs saw the need to replace these poorly engineered spouts with ACTUAL SPOUTS!

    Don't Buy Expensive Tomato Cages
    An American Homestead



    Published on Jun 7, 2017
    Expensive Tomato Cages
    I can not believe the cost of tomato cages at some gardening stores. usually between $3-5 for the large ones. If you grow 20 plants, that's over 100 bucks. Homesteaders on a budget need a better plan and cheaper option.

    I highly recommend either using cattle panels or buy animal fencing and use that for your tomato cages. The cost will be much cheaper per tomato cage and they will last forever.

    3/8 inch rebar is also very cheap and affordable. But it and use those for the stakes to hold the cages in place during storms and winds. Believe it or not, it will also provide a source of iron for your soil over the years as you can use them each year over and over. Win/Win.

    Beware most gardening stores. There are some good ones out there but you find cheaper alternatives. Also, keep an eye out for Dollar Stores like Dollar TREE as they will have good sales on gardening items in the spring.

    Our Homestead Sawmill Choice - Buying A Sawmill
    An American Homestead



    Published on Jun 12, 2017
    Buying a Sawmill.
    A lot of homesteaders really like the idea of purchasing a sawmill for their homestead. You want to build your own projects with lumber harvested from your homestead or nearby areas. And that makes a lot of sense. But you also don't want to spend a small fortune on a mill either.

    Here are the reasons why we chose the mill we did. Everyone has different reasons for their purchase. I just wanted to explain our choice on why I got the M14 Foley Belsaw Sawmill.

    My LAST YouTube Video? Freeing The Subs!
    An American Homestead



    Published on Jun 13, 2017
    It's not about the money. It's about holding our subs hostage. Unless your a channel that Youtube approves of, your subs are being held hostage. Normally, approved channels never tackle politically incorrect material and have access to the feeds of all their subscribers.

    How can a channel with 600,000 subs put out a video and have it only receive 40,000 views? That's like 6% of your overall subscribers. Are you telling me that only 6% of your subs decided to watch your video? Or is the YT algorithm holding your other subs hostage because YT is making the choice to show them other content IT THINKS they will find more interesting.

    Over. Done. Meet Blockchain! You are stuck in the centralized control of a fading construct. A Decentralized Blockchain is going to be the future of censorship free content.
