Learn from our MISTAKES before you buy!
This shopping guide only includes products and resources that we have personally used and loved.
It does NOT include items we DON’T love, except where I have mentioned “Here’s the stupid thing I bought. It was crappy. Here’s the one YOU should get to avoid crappiness”.
How did I choose the products in this guide?
I created an inventory of all of my most-used appliances, gadgets, and tools that have withstood the test of time, and I went out into the Interwebs and found reviews of these products.
This guide is made up of my personal homestead products that have received at least a 4 out of 5 star rating from customer reviews.
Wherever newer/better/cheaper models now exist (compared to when I acquired my products), I’ve noted that, too.

I could’ve written about any product under the sun, but you have my word that I’ve only reviewed products that I use and love.
I’m happy to share products with you that I’ve owned for years and truly love. I hope this Shopping Guide will help you save time and money by purchasing high-quality products.

Here are my 15 most favorite books about community, gardening, homesteading & permaculture.
As homesteaders, we spend a lot of time in the kitchen processing the garden harvest, cooking real food from scratch, and preserving the excess.
