You know me well enough by now to know that I’m not normally bossy, but this book will transform the way you care for your flocks, herds, and gardens!

Eventually, you’re going to decide you needed the information (probably when it’s too late) and will regret not having purchased it already to have on hand when you want to reference it.

And when that day comes, don’t say I didn’t warn you!

I know the more situations we encounter on our homestead that we care for in a holistic manner, the more I’m convinced that care doesn’t need to be managed in a conventional way. This summer for example, we were able to clear up our cow’s mastitis using essential oils and aloe vera gel in only a few days. How amazing is that?

Covering topics such as dealing with parasites, fly management, caring for your family cow, custom chicken feed mixes, treats, and money-saving ideas to feed your gals, recipes for natural cleaning and maintenance, gardening solutions, and over 40 recipes all told, I’m certain there is something in this book that you can glean from or will inspire you manage your homestead more naturally

Not all e-books are created equally. Some of them are a rehashing of generic thoughts and ideas and those give e-books a bad reputation, but there are more and more authors who are writing thoroughly balanced, well-researched, and comprehensive valuable material and offering it in this format for our benefit. Natural Homestead is one of these books.

In the world we live in now, there is information out there for all of these things- but it can be so hard to find it all in on place. It seems to take a lot of digging. This e-book solves this dilemma.

There is nothing like reading a book to figure out how to do something right, and homesteading is no exception. An e-book is even better. If you want to know all the tools of the trade, this is the perfect place to start.

If you have been keeping up with this site for any length of time, this e-book is going to compile so much of what you see here and what you have yet to see. This natural homestead life is not an easy one. There are so many tips that can help the newby or the person who has been living the lifestyle for years.

Natural Homestead

by Jill Winger of The Prairie Homestead

You’re ditching the chemical-laden bath products. You’re buying organic produce. You’re reading the labels of everything that comes into your house. But what about the barnyard? Learn how to make everything from homemade chicken feed, to DIY bug sprays, to natural dewormers, to herbal salves and more in Natural Homestead!


My goal in writing this e-book was to compile the various remedies, tidbits, recipes, and anecdotes I mined from a pile of books, blogs, websites, scholarly articles, and personal experience.
I hope to offer some sort of middle ground between someone with a Master’s degree in animal or plant science, and Great Aunt Bertha’s eclectic collection of home remedies.
I know there will be some who scoff at the thought of these simple recipes having any significance in modern agriculture, but keep in mind that many of these remedies have been used on humble homesteads, backyard gardens, and small farms for decades. There has to be a reason that they are so well-loved and passed from generation to generation. -Jill

  1. I noticed this book from your side bar and really had some book envy – thanks so much for posting the sale – I just purchased it!

    1. Thanks so much for your support! I hope you weren’t disappointed. We’ve been calling around to feed mills looking to see what single grains they carry so we can work on trying some of the chicken feed recipes in particular and save a little $$ 🙂
