Country Living Websites

Does anyone know a site that list old fashion methods for living? Like how to butcher hogs, make lye soap, can sausage, etc.? If there is no such place, I wish someone would start one.

Reader's Digest published a great book called "Back to Basics" that has all of this kind of stuff in it. It is really an amazing resource. You could check their website and see if it is still published, otherwise, you might need to check at the library.

How ironic is it that we can search for the "back to the land" stuff on the internet!? I swear, if I ever decided to live "off the grid", I would have to have some sort of bicycle generator and satellite set up just so I could cruise the web!

I agree, homesteadingtoday.com is great. You might also look at http://www.backwoodshome.com/ There is a published homesteading magazine, but there are also articles and message boards online.

www.motherearthnews.com been my favorite for over 20 years. I have also had Readers Digest Back to Basics for over 20 years and keep it next to my Bible. I look through it over and over and over. I got one for a friend last year. It was only 8.00 used from www.abebooks.com hardcover, used.

There is a site http://www.waltonfeed.com Go to the top of the homepage and you will see where it says sitemap, scroll down until you see Old Timers page and click on that, and there all kinds of neat pages that have all kinds of things about self sufficent living. The whole site is interesting. Hope this helps

I have started a website at thecountryfair.net. Please let me know what you think of it. I am trying to incorporate all of the things you are talking about here. It is a labor of love. Maybe some of you could help me with ideas.
