Who We Are

Homesteaders of America is an organization created by homesteaders, for homesteaders. We believe in living a simple life. We believe in modern and conservative homesteading. And we believe in making homesteading normal again. We are men, women, children, old, young, college educated and high school dropouts. We are simply people taking control of our lives to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Growing gardens, raising farm animals, and becoming self-sufficient—in a backyard, on a rooftop, or on 100 acres.

Our Story

Amy Fewell began her homesteading journey not long after her son was diagnosed with asthma. She wanted a better lifestyle for her family, and instead of waiting for someone to change it, she decided to take control of her and her family’s health. First came chickens, then came a garden, and the gateway to homestead swung wide open.

Homesteaders of America was conceived with the heart of offering educational videos, articles, and support to those who wish to begin homesteading and those who are seasoned homesteaders. What Amy soon realized was that there wasn’t readily available education online for homesteading from trusted sources. Not only that, but we were lacking a “village”. Homesteading takes a village, and attending one of our events feels like a big family reunion. It’s great to learn from people online, but it’s even better to get together once a year with like minded people to celebrate this lifestyle!

Homesteaders of America is now a team of more than just a single person. It’s our homesteading tribe, and it just keeps growing!

On our website you’ll find videos, video clips from our conferences, articles from trusted homesteaders, DIY and how-to, homestead legalities, and support. We’re here to make homesteading in America not just a trend, but a lifetime achievement.
