Taking into account I'm a townie and most of what I learnt is from youtube/books. Really like the American homestead they are much more switched on and practical. Apart from raising the odd animal for our own freezer... Raised a handful of Le Bresse eating chickens - Will buy day olds prob Sasso slow growing in spring over hatching own. Growing my own to as much as poss but needs a lot of tweaking for next year. Made bacon from pigs Raise small flock of layers (sell most eggs) Milking house cow for milk Making yogurt Started making butter from cream as above (seeing that we spend at least £10pw on butter this is a saving) Next step is to make real cheese however the cave style cheese will have to wait for now. Watching Curd Nerd on YouTube learning loads. My aim is to learn skills and save money while improving nutrition Anyone else trying homesteading?
