- Homestead Roots
- My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

Supplies for Home Brew Winemaking
The easiest option would be to buy a winemaking/homebrew kit...but that isnt always the least expensive option. Check garage sales and craigslist for wine kits and carboys. We got our wine kit at a garage sale for $10. Then if a few items are missing they are relatively inexpensive to replace instead of spending hundreds of dollars upfront for a home brew kit. Alot of the homebrew kits now come with plastic Carboys instead of Glass...so make sure to pay attention to what you are buying if you buy it online. The Glass Carboy is the most expensive piece to the wine kit so if you can get that seperately then you will be good to go! We slowly collected our supplies over about a years time and then when we finally had all the equipment then we took off, be patient and save money :)
