Farming, Homesteading and Prepping Resources


Where to start, how to begin...these are the questions that many people ask themselves when debating how to get out of cubicle-ville and find their greener pastures.  The task can sure seem daunting, especially for those with no farming and homesteading experience.

Relax.  The entire Farm Dreams community is here to help you!

  • You may want to start by reading any of our numerous articles on farming ventures or "how-to's".
  • How about checking out what grants are available, where you may be able to score an sustainable farming internship or apprentice gig or even what financing/loans are available for new farmers.
  • Want to see what others think and share what you think?  View and participate in our opinion polls!
  • Or, check out some cool maps and tools or, if you're into what's happening with the price of oil, gold or inflation, check out our economic data feeds. They're all here!

Once you've OD'd on reading, join a group, make some friends and chat it up.  You'll be on your way to your Green Acres in no time!
