- Author Bio
The book of the movement that applies homegrown practices of self-sufficiency to modern life.
Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-reliance and sustainability, characterized by home gardening and animal husbandry, food preservation, and even the small-scale production of textiles, clothing, and craftwork.
This indispensable reference book is divided into three sections: food (from sourdough bread baking to pickling vegetables to fermenting kefir), herbalism (from growing an herbal garden to making skin and hair care products to foraging), and animal husbandry (from beekeeping to buying, raising, and owning chickens, cows, and pigs).
Lavishly illustrated with 250 full-color photographs and full of detailed tips, techniques, and recipes, this reference book is comfortable on the coffee table, in your kitchen, or even propped open for use in your backyard garden.
This book will appeal to women who want to be informed and inspired with bringing homesteading and back-to-the-land movement influenced practices to their modern life.
Organic food and natural products continue to trend and grow strongly year over year
Magazines and other publications underscore this natural movement. More than half of the top 100 magazines are dedicated to women, home, and food. Most of these publications incorporate organic and DIY information.
In the last decade, we’ve witnessed a restored interest in canning, preserving, and fermenting foods at home, eating organic foods, and using less chemicals for body care and home care.
Women’s Heritage is one of the frontiers of a larger movement. The renewal of certain homesteading practices is very real, and a steadily upward-moving trend.

“Nikki Reed’s Top Eco Picks: These girls are my go-to for tips on sustainable living, recipes, DIY products and more. They just released their new book as well, focusing on empowering women, farming, apothecary, and beyond.” – HARPER’S BAZAAR
“The title is ideally timed to illuminate us on the ins and outs of everything from the art of a well-curated edible flower salad and how to lacto-ferment ketchup, to the difference between Buff Orpington hens and Rhode Island Reds, to recipes for make-your-own toothpaste (hint: don’t forget the French clay). It also features experts in each discipline, including co-founder of fermented alcohol brand the Apiary, Rachna Hailey, and beekeeper Nicole Ulabarri who runs Morris Honey.” —C Magazine: California Style & Culture
