Episode 41: Staci Drovdahl – Homesteading with Seven Kids

Staci Drovdahl is the mom of 7 children and is on a mission to ditch the grocery store and improve the health of their family. Their family packed up and moved across the country and built their own home. One of the things that I love about this is that they had a bunch of projects along the way that their kids helped do. 

She calls herself the homesteading mama and they grow much of the food that they eat in their home. Their family has a pumpkin patch and their kids work and help with that part of their business. In this episode, she shares some tips about growing your own garden, raising chickens, involving their kids in the home building and farming, where to buy your food in bulk, and so much more!
