(Natural News) Have you ever considered going “off the grid” but felt as though you did not have enough property or acreage to do it? It turns out you really do not need that much land to grow a considerable amount of food – more than you might think, in fact.
In the following episode of Brighteon Conversations with Mike Adams, the Ohio-based “Resistance Chicks” tell all about how they created an entire homestead on just one acre of suburban land in the Cincinnati area.
What started as just two city girls helping their grandmother weed her garden eventually turned into an “obsession” with living off the land as much as possible. And in today’s world, that decision is proving to be timelier than the sister duo probably imagined.
“We just have a passion for growing things,” the Resistance Chicks explain. “The gardening, the growing the food, it’s healthy for your mind, it’s healthy for your body, it’s healthy for your soul.”
From there, the Resistance Chicks started to delve into the work of Sally Fallon and the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF), which taught them the difference between factory-farmed meat and pasture-raised meat – watch below:
“We started to read about natural healing, we started to read about how to heal your gut, raw milk is just real milk,” they explain.
“And for thousands of years, people have been putting in good bacteria into their body, healthy grass-fed meat into their body, and we’re kind of in an obesity health epidemic. And it really starts with not just the food you eat but the lifestyle that you live to acquire your food.”
Resistance Chicks explain how they’ve had about 100 piglets come through their one-acre property
Based on the size of the land they had available to them, the Resistance Chicks decided to start out with chickens. They also considered sheep, goats, and even a miniature cow, but ultimately decided on a miniature pig breed known as kunekune.
“We got three sows and a bore and they became part of our family,” they explain. “We brought the bore inside and watched movies to make it friendly so it could have kids around.”
All in all, they had about 100 piglets on the property, which again is only about an acre in size. If they can do this much on just an acre, think of how much could be done with even just a little bit more.
Believing that pasture-raised meat is the healthiest and most nutrient-dense food there is, the Resistance Chicks learned how to butcher their own animals for food, explaining how they went about figuring out the best methods.
“We never thought that we would do this, but it became a lifestyle that became exciting and you felt like if you were giving your animal love and attention then they would produce a healthy meat for you,” they say.
“I think that’s part of the healthy cycle of life.”
This fun and lively conversation is one you will not want to miss. It is both informative and inspiring, especially if you are among the growing number of people who see society breaking apart at the seams and want to come up with creative new ways to be self-sufficient.
“And you respect your food, whether it’s a meat or a vegetable or a fruit or a berry, you respect it when you actually have to put the time in,” they further reveal about the laborious but rewarding process of homesteading.
