We are occasionally asked what products we use and recommend and I’m happy to share some of our favorites with you, especially if it helps you save time and money. Listed here are a few of the companies we love, use regularly, and believe in. We never recommend a company unless we feel they would benefit you and offer you the best service possible. We do sometimes receive monetary compensation for referring you to a few of the companies listed, which helps us with the costs associated with running and maintaining this website. We appreciate your support. Thanks and Happy Homesteading!
My grandmother used to say that the quality of your recipe is only going to be as good as the quality of the ingredients you use. This is so true, and the same goes for gardening. The quality of your garden just won’t be the same unless you use the best possible quality of heirloom seeds. When it comes to quality, service, and down-home charm, we use White Harvest Seed Company for almost all our seed needs.
Check them out for yourself and experience the best! See their wide selection of high germination heirloom seeds. God Bless.Learn More
We love freeze drying as a form of preserving our harvest! Freeze dried foods are light weight, delicious, and best of all, retain up to 98% of the nutrients and have a 25 year shelf life! Versatile and easy, freeze drying can be used to preserve a wide variety of foods including fruits, vegetables, eggs, dairy, and meats! Formerly only used in commercial settings, you can now own your own freeze dryer at home. We use and recommend Harvest Right Freeze Dryers.Learn More
Getting enough nutrition every day can be daunting, especially when it comes to fruits and vegetables. Even here on the homestead where we grow a lot of vegetables ourselves, making sure we get a good variety of organic, nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables was a challenge…that is until we found Juice Plus+. I love this product and love this company. Juice Plus+ makes it easy for anyone to get the nutrients they need from 30 different fruits and vegetables in a convenient capsule or chew-able form. For less than the cost of a gourmet coffee, you and your kids can get their fruits and vegetables every day!Learn More
We love our garden and there is nothing like the flavor of fresh, home-grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Where we live, the winters can get pretty harsh, so finding good, fresh produce can be a challenge when it’s the off-season for gardening outside. We were super excited to find the Tower Garden. This makes it easy for anyone, regardless of the size of your homestead to have the ability to economically and efficiently grow a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs year-round! The savings from growing your own can pay for the garden long before the first year of owning one which makes it a logical choice to supply your family with your favorites. Imagine picking fresh tomatoes, even in the heart of winter!Learn More

Offering a wide range of culinary and medicinal herbs, essential oils, spices, healthy and beauty products, and elixirs, Mountain Rose Herbs is a great place to shop.Learn More
Vertical gardening means you can grow mouth-watering and healthy herbs, greens, and vegetables anywhere, even if you don't have much space! The Garden Tower makes this easier, with a rotating garden and space to even do your own worms with kitchen scraps in the center compost tube! Even with my larger garden, I still have several of these on my porch so I can quickly grab what I need for my recipes. Try it for yourself and get hooked on easy gardening. No hoeing, no weeding, no backbreaking/knee breaking work! Just fill, plant, water, and enjoy.Learn More
