Homesteading podcasts to keep you entertained while inspiring you to live off the land, grow your own food, and be as self-sufficient as possible.
I’ve been a huge podcast fan for a while. I am subscribed to podcasts on EVERYTHING, from blogging tips, true crime, to productivity I enjoy a good mix of topics in my podcasts subscriptions. Today I thought I would share what I think are the Best Homesteading Podcasts for New Homesteaders.
Because I listen to podcasts while doing chores or while I’m walking the dog, I avoid overly technical podcasts. I love chatty, unscripted podcasts that feel like I’m hanging out with friends while they talk about homesteading stuff. The podcasts I’ve listed below are some of my favorites to listen to!
The Best Homesteading Podcasts for New Homesteaders
Lately I’ve been looking for ways to beat cabin fever, and thinking about and planning for spring is always helpful, so I’ve had a steady stream of Homesteading podcasts playing in my earbuds while I go about my day. Here are the podcasts that have been keeping me company during the days we’ve been spending at home lately, and providing me a ton of inspiration for the season ahead!
The Pioneering Today Podcast isn’t just entertaining, Melissa also gives you the clear steps for gardening, food preservation, cooking from scratch, and the traditional skill sets. Melissa is really good at making her podcasts with guests feel very much like conversations instead of interviews. Episode #244, Impact of Being in the Midst of a Crisis How Homesteading Helps really served as a great reminder for me to look at this current situation and decide what I could do differently to improve our preparedness.
It is so fun to stumble upon a local homesteading podcast! Chicken Thistle Farm is located in Walworth and focuses on real world farming topics, and aren’t shy about sharing failures along with successes of raising pigs and chickens. The producers of this on again off again podcast have hinted at a return to podcasting in 2020. Luckily, there are plenty of episodes in their library for you to work your way through in the meantime.
I love how Amy shares so candidly about her life on her 5 acre farm! A Farmish Kind of Life is currently one of my favorite podcasts, it is very informative and entertaining. I really appreciate how Amy is real, open, and honest about what life on a farm is like. Episode #76 about Starting Over on the Homestead really resonated with me, and I really appreciated Amy’s honesty and candor.
Living Homegrown was one of the first Homesteading Podcasts I started listening to and it is really like having a cup of coffee with a friend, I love the chatty format. This weekly podcast was discontinued last year, but the topics are still relevant and worth a listen. The tagline life farm fresh without the farm perfectly describes this podcast. Theresa the host explores topics including canning, Preserving & Fermenting, homemade yogurt, butter, cheese, sourdough, Small-Space Food Growing & tips for living a more sustainable lifestyle.
I listen to all these podcasts on my Google Podcast App, but you should be able to find all of these podcasts wherever you stream your podcasts!
