Animal Care

Livestock on your homestead needs more care now than they do in the warmer months. Feeding and watering can be more cumbersome in the winter so setting up systems to simplifiy the process is a good idea.

Work on Fences and Enclosures

The winter is the perfect time to spend shopping for seeds, poultry, and supplies you need on your homestead. It's also a great time to can things taking up space in your freezer.
