One of the biggest reasons more preppers don’t transition to homesteading is that they don’t have a way to earn a living while being off-grid.
Homesteading usually means living in a rural area, which means many people can’t keep their normal jobs.
That’s why I wrote this blog post showing you 5 simple ways anyone can earn a living off-grid.
These 5 things won’t earn you a lot of money compared to your regular job, but if you’re living a true off-grid lifestyle, then you don’t need a lot of money to sustain yourself anyway.
All the suggestions in this blog post are related to gardening, which is something you’ll need to do as a homesteader regardless of whether you use it to earn a living or not.
1. Sell Extra Produce
This is the most obvious way to earn a living as a homesteader, but I’m listing it here anyway because it works.
People love things that are local, and this is especially true with food. They could get store-bought vegetables, but your organic produce is healthier, tastier, and gives them peace of mind that they know where the produce is coming from.
Don’t worry about competition. Even if you’re in a rural area, not as many people grow their own food as you might think. That’s because gardening takes work…and paying you for it is much easier.
The catch is that you have to be able to grow enough to feed your family and have extra to sell to other people. The time, trial and error you put into gardening will eventually pay off and yield an abundant crop.
