It all started when I was just a baby, and it has followed me all over the country since.

Today, I’m passing on this important love to my own children.

What am I talking about?

Producing my own healthy food.

Let me ask you a question to prove my point: Are you really eating healthy food?

I’m not talking about ditching processed snacks or sugar, though that’s a good start. I’m talking about examining the fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats on your table—are they really as healthy as they could be?

Let me explain.

According to the EWG’s 2016 “Dirty Dozen” list, common foods like strawberries, apples, celery, grapes, spinach, and tomatoes are heavily contaminated with pesticides.

80-90% of the main staple crops in America used for producing processed food products are genetically modified and most fresh fruits and vegetables are grown almost exclusively in a single valley in California.

Much of our food travels hundreds or even thousands of miles before it even hits our tables. (The average is 1,500 miles from farm to plate.)

Is there a solution to this ever-growing food problem? Absolutely.

Producing more of your own food!

  • Raising vegetables, fruits, and nuts
  • Raising animals for meat
  • Raising animals for dairy
  • Raising animals for eggs

But…one problem.

If you’ve never grown a tomato plant, cared for a laying hen, or tended a herd of cattle before, how in the world do you start

Many questions surface.

  • How do you produce food without herbicides, pesticides, or other chemicals?
  • How do you handle common pests, diseases, and weeds?
  • How do you build your soil naturally, without synthetic fertilizers and applications?
  • How do you set up a growing system that will provide food for your family for generations to come?
  • If you decide to grow food as a business, how do (or don’t) you sell your produce?
  • How do you manage your crops, animals, and land for maximum productivity?
  • How do you give your animals what they need in the most efficient and healthiest way possibly?
  • How do you know which structures to build and where?

Well, those questions are why we produced our NEW Summit Event Video Course!

Last year we hosted a live training event in Virginia…and professionally filmed lots of sessions about producing your own healthy, homegrown food!

And we have a few FREE video clips about this very topic on the Event Video Course page. See them now here.

Our new Event Video Course will help you dig deeper into the exciting world of food production.

It addresses essential topics in detail, focusing on scaling up vegetable and fruit production and producing essentials like meat, dairy, and eggs.

Sessions like these…

  • Pastured Chickens
  • Low-Tech Growing Methods
  • Raising Pigs on the Homestead
  • Homestead Dairy
  • Raised Bed Gardening
  • Permaculture Design
  • Pastured Cattle
  • Scaling Up Production
  • Greenhouse Production
  • Holistic Sheep Care
  • Local Economy & Income from Homestead Production
  • And more!

Want to see a bit of what the course teaches you?

Here’s some information pulled from three of the session outlines we’ve prepared for course members.

How Do You Know What to Plant? 

Determine what you want to plant. On this scale, it’s just for a family’s self-food production. On a larger scale, you might grow for sale. The difference? You want to grow based on who will eat it. Don’t like Brussels sprouts? Just because it’s the time to plant them doesn’t mean you should plant them…unless you’ll eat them. Questions: How many people are in your family? How much of each plant will you use? How many lettuce or cabbage, for example, will you eat? There isn’t any sense is growing a little of something you’ll eat a lot of, and vice versa. The purpose of this food is to feed yourself—start with the dinner table and work back.”

What’s Permaculture?

“Permaculture is a design system that can help supply for all our needs while also benefiting the environment and the landscape around us. It’s an integration of energy systems, fuel systems, food systems, shelter, etc. We’re trying to design these things in a holistic way, so they functionally work with one another…

“Working within ‘Zonal Placement’…refers to our energy expenditure throughout the day. How many times are you going out to the garden every day? How many times are you going out to the chickens every day? How many times are you checking livestock every day? You want to place the elements that you’re checking and tending multiple times a day closer to your basecamp (homesite). Start with your kitchen garden (like this) right out your backdoor, and build out from there. Going from that, in broader zones, do other things like orchards and cash/storage crops (things that need more land and less tending).”

How Do I Choose a Hog Breed and Start Raising Them for Profit?

“Use local genetics as a base. Find out what line of hogs have been raised for at least 50yrs in your locale/county. If you go out of your county, it will take a minimum of 3 generations for your hogs to adapt to the soil, climate, and natural plant growth. [We] went to [our] local Amish community and watched 3 different breeds. [I] picked the best Berkshire. The next day, [I] picked the best German Giant. Then, [I] picked the best Large Black. [Our] pigs grow out to 260-300lbs in 7mos. Now, [I’m] on the 4th generation and [cull] ruthlessly.”
