Hi folks...I'm a newbie here but not to homesteading/micro-farming/prepping. I sorta shy away from the term "prepper" thanks to the TV show "Doomsday Preppers"...heck, I don't even own a single piece of camo wear!...but my family and I do try to live as self sufficiently as possible. We raise a few veggies, some small landowner style livestock, and are in the process of firing the power company. I hope to get some ideas here and maybe contribute some back as well.
