OFF GRID HOMESTEADING: 5 CHALLENGES AND THE SOLUTIONS WE'RE TRYING

Are you interested in off grid homesteading? When we first moved off the grid eight years ago, we didn’t have any specific plans to homestead.

However, as we began to get interested in becoming more self-reliant, we realized the challenges of an off the grid homestead were a bit unique in today’s world.

OFF GRID HOMESTEADING AND LIMITED POWER

We recently upgraded our off grid solar panels and generator along with getting a new Tesla Powerwall 2, so we finally have a reliable power source. However, our power was limited until a few months ago.

WATER

Whether you’re homesteading off the grid or on it, you’re going to need a reliable water supply. Your vegetable garden and your livestock depend on it.

GETTING FEED & SUPPLIES TO REMOTE LOCATION

If you’re homesteading off grid, most times this means you’re far from civilization. Getting homestead supplies to a remote location comes with challenges. And often a big shipping bill.

TIME MANAGEMENT WHEN HOMESTEADING

Homesteaders know the to-do lists never end. Getting a time management system in place is a huge help.

GETTING ADVICE AND HELP

Yet one of the most valuable resources when you’re preparing to live off the grid and homestead is the advice and help from others.  This is where finding other like-minded individuals can help. Look for social media groups and pages such as Facebook local groups.
