Making Money on Your Homestead

You most definitely can make money on a small homestead if you want to, and you put in the work to do so.

Yes, you can definitely sell your chicken, quail, or duck eggs as farm-fresh eggs.

You can make more money selling hatching eggs though. This is going to be more lucrative if you have pure birds, not just barnyard mixes.

Selling chicks is my biggest spring and summer income stream that comes directly from our homestead.

House plants are popular with everyone, not just homesteaders. If you have a spider plant, sell those babies!

Start a blog. You don’t have to sell your soul or push products, you just have to write content that readers find useful.

Local shops sell handmade soaps, and prices on Etsy are pretty similar. Once you have a bit of practice, it’s easy enough to churn out enough handmade soap to bring in a tidy sum.

The key to doing well with baked goods lies in the planning process. You need to know your production costs, how long it will take to produce a product, and what you want to sell it for.
