Starting Your Backyard Homestead
J. B. Maxwell
Who is J.B. Maxwell? Grew up in a small farm town with no red lights in Maryland. Currently lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and son. I love my family, outdoors, hiking, nature, gardening, and teaching. Something about being outside just brings me a peaceful feeling to my innards. I’ve always loved the idea of growing your own healthy, clean, organic food and producing enough food for your whole family and neighbors without having to rely 100% on the grocery store. There’s just something about producing your own food that gives it a taste unrivaled to anything you could have bought. Also, I wanted to save as much money as possible. I absolutely love taking control of my food and having a more hands-on part in providing for my family. I’ve been practicing homesteading principles on a total of two different properties (one 0.75 acres, the other 1 acre) for a little over 8 years now. Helping others start their own backyard homestead no matter where they have always been a dream of mine because I remember how alone, confused, and silly I felt at times trying to figure things out myself. I asked a lot of unintelligent questions and had quite a few embarrassing moments. If I can help you avoid that by writing this book, then I’m going to do it! I am the right person to be writing this book because I have spent countless hours researching, practicing, and implementing homesteading principles. I know what works and what doesn’t work and I can help guide you by giving step-by-step instructions and providing you a blueprint that is, what I like to call, “dummy-proof”. I’m writing this book because I had to spend hundreds of hours learning things that hurt my pride, confidence, and most importantly my back! If I would have had someone there to show me the ropes, teach me the correct mindset, and point me in the right direction, I know it would have saved me a ton of time and pain. That’s what I want to be for you, someone to get you started in the right direction and tell you things that no one told me. I’m on your side of the ring and I promise to let you in on all the tips, tricks, and secrets I wish I knew when I first started. I’m pretty much writing this book for young and green beginners and I know you will absolutely receive tremendous value from this book. Look, nothing is better than growing your own crop, giving it to a loved one, and watching their face light up after taking a bite. Just the other day, my ten-month-old son took a bite of a fresh vegetable for the first time that we brought to the table. At first, he made a shocked and surprised look like babies do when first tasting something new. Then, with his four little teeth, he took a big chomp followed by, “mmmm” while dancing and chewing in his high chair with excitement. It’s moments like that you live for. Knowing your family is receiving healthy delicious food that you played a part in creating. I want you to have that feeling and I’m going to show you exactly how to get started.
