How to Layout Your Homestead

Becky shows you how she laid out her homestead. She talks about the design she used to choose where to put everything. You can get lots of use out of a small homestead if you use Becky’s method for designing it.

There are 3 zones you can use when you’re deciding were to put everything.

Zone 1 is where you put the thing that need daily care and that you need to keep an eye on. Like the garden and your chickens.

Zone 2 is for bigger things like horses or cows.

Zone 3 is for things that don’t need lots of care like a hay field or an orchard.

Also remember when you’re thinking about buying a piece of land it’s very important that you get one that’s zoned agricultural or residential/agricultural.
