Hi, I’m Kristi…My original goal when I first began Homestead Wishing was to help others struggling to get started in their homesteading journey… Often people just don’t know where to start. Be assured you can start just about anywhere…

Some people start with gardening, others cooking, and some jump head first and start with livestock! No matter how you decide to begin I have many resources to share with you.

That’s why I’m here, to share all of the knowledge that I’ve gained over the last several years. To have it all in one convenient place for people to consume!
