In an Unstable World.
Start Your Independent Homesteading Journey Today!
Howdy! And welcome to Sustainable Preparedness.
We’d like to introduce you to this independent homesteading lifestyle that we live and love. In fact, we hope you’ll be inspired to do it too—and we want to help! That's what this website is all about, helping you live a modern off grid lifestyle.
Many years ago, our family jumped out of the “rat race” to live a simpler (yet modern) life. We live off the grid with a solar system and continue to develop our new homestead deep in the mountains of Idaho. Yes, we're starting over at a new place--if we can do it, so can you! In the spirit of neighbors helping neighbors, we dedicate this website to each one who is dreaming of reclaiming the noble independence our forefathers cherished so dearly.
Discover the secrets to independent homesteading on our blog. Learn from our years of trial and error and gain the knowledge you need to live a modern off-grid lifestyle. Join our community of like-minded individuals and start your journey towards self-sufficiency today!
Discover our collection of high-quality training DVDs and books at Sustainable Preparedness. We take pride in producing some of the finest resources available to help you on your independent homesteading journey. Visit our store and the valuable knowledge we have to offer.
