Are you ready to organize your homestead?
Homestead Management Printables
119 Printable Schedule Templates, Expense Sheets, Production Records, Charts, Calculators, and more.
It takes a lot to manage a homestead. On top of all your regular home duties, there are animals to care for, feed to buy, vegetables to preserve, eggs to gather, seeds to start and so much more.
Do you wonder if all of this work is even making a difference to your budget? Are you really saving money?
Wouldn’t you love to know exactly how much food you’re able to produce off your very own land?
When should you plant your seeds according to your frost dates? After all, “late spring” isn’t very specific.
It can be enough to make your head spin, especially if you’re not organized, and leave you wondering if the “simple life” really is as simple as they make it out to be.
I’ve learned from experience how much more smoothly and efficiently a homestead will run if you take a few extra minutes each day and maintain records and set up a schedule that will take the guesswork out of your to-do list, help you determine your profitability, and, most exciting of all, see your annual yields!
Consider me your homestead planner! I’ve gathered all of the personal printable worksheets that I’ll be using on my own homestead and have shared them for the benefit and increased productivity of your homestead!

How do I use these printables?
I cover the topic of how to use these sheets to keep your homestead organized and running smoothly in this post. In the near future, I hope to give you a video tutorial (See that HERE) showing you my home management binders and exactly how I have them set up.
Wait. I thought you already had these available for free.
Not so much of a question than an observation, but you’re right. You can get the old free templates HERE. They are pretty generic and most of the pages now available in the new version weren’t created yet back then.
Well, then why should I pay for these new ones?
You don’t have to and if you can’t afford to, I would insist that you don’t. These new printables are all updated for 2018, have a bright and attractive new design as well as many new features to increase their usefulness! AND this is the only way you can get access to the all-new Livestock Gestation Calculator plus man, many other printables not found in the older files.
I thought you already had a Seed Sowing Chart too.
I do. Actually it’s a “schedule. You can find it HERE. This is SO MUCH MORE than that chart! With this document you can enter your OWN first and last frost date (instead of adjusting it off of mine) and the document does all of the work for you, giving you dates for sowing, hardening off, transplanting, direct sowing, germination timelines, days to harvest, and a fall sowing date (if applicable.) Instead of spending hours customizing the chart, you’ll spend less than a minute… and that’s if you have to look up your dates before you punch them in!
Can I edit these files?
Not really. Most of the files are in PDF form. In some of the documents where your PDF reader recognizes the lines, you can type on the sheet to enter information. However, these printables are intended to be filled in by hand, possibly even out in the field or garden! The exception is the Seed Sowing Calculator which is available in Excel format and has you entering your own custom dates according to your first and last frost. You can also change the formulas if you find that, say, your days to harvest depart from the average.
Can I get a refund?
I’m sorry. But because these are digital files, I cannot offer you a refund. If you have any issues whatsoever contact me and I will work with you to try and make you happy with your purchase. Thank you for understanding!
