Welcome to Living Traditions Homestead. We are all about living a simple, self-sufficient and debt free life. We are full time homesteaders living in the Missouri Ozark's where we spend our time raising our own food, preparing healthy meals and redefining what success and happiness looks like for us. We put our main focus on our faith, family and our homestead lifestyle. We love to share the knowledge we have gained and to teach others to live this awesome homesteading life!
In this video we can see the grass coming up and I start installing some drainage tile.
Here's Raven Cole talking about the nice projects they do and all the other stuff she does on a homestead that USA Fluid makes simple to do. USAfluid.com has a USAGES manifesto and Motorcycle section. Check it out.
Last beautiful fall day of the year. Rainy fall weather is making it hard for our family to get any work done on the meadow. We continue to burn brush and prep the meadow with the Kubota for seed, pulling stumps and working on drainage tile.
Picking rock, leveling with the box blade and preparing ground for hay seed.
Picking rock, and racking with the Kubota to prepare the soil for seed.
In this video we see a winter meadow and discuss the drainage pipe draining off spring water and plans for the coming summer months, also show purchase of a Case 480 Backhoe.
This video is about the first year of building our homestead. We are clearing a power line to make a meadow and our drainage tile fails! Getting the Case 480 Backhoe ready for the season while an owl hoots in the distance.
