The Happy Homestead here, from Wake Forest, NC

Howdy fellow homesteaders!  I'm Amanda, and I'm the matriarch of The Happy Homestead.  We are a suburban homestead, on 1/3 of an acre, and maximizing it the best we can.  We raise bees, grow shiitake mushrooms, garden, canning/preserving and a whole lotta cooking and baking! My husband and I have 2 young children and our goal is to move to a large parcel of land in 2-3 years to build our dream homestead.  In the meantime, we both work full time jobs, and enjoy doing all that we can to live more sustainably. 

You can follow our journey on YouTube,

I look forward to connecting with you.
