Welcome to the Aponte Homestead

Join Us

As we embark on our journey to self sufficiency.  It has been a long time coming and we are getting closer and closer to having our dream of becoming homesteaders.  Going from city life to the country is no easy feat and comes with a slew of challenges and road blocks. Within this blog, we will capture the good, the bad, and the ugly leaving you with a clear sense of reality such as how to’s, growing food, home cooking, food preservation, tips & tricks, and our failures. There are a lot of blogs out there that glamorize homesteading, making it appear to be an easygoing, laid back lifestyle.  That can’t be further from the truth!

Let us bring you along our journey with our failures, successes and a few laughs along the way.  Enjoy!
