Hey, Pack. It has been another busy, productive, and slightly muddy week here on our survival homestead. We have been tending to our garden primarily for the past several days. Our chicken, duck, and guinea flock is immensely enjoying the ultra spacious run on their new coop. Eggs are so much easier to get since there are small doors on…

Although many folks don’t think it is possible, you can dehydrate milk at home without the need for extremely expensive equipment. Dehydrating dairy products is often thought of as too arduous of a task, but I haven’t found it difficult at all to successfully dehydrate sour cream, cottage cheese, cheese, and even milk in my under $100 dehydrator.

Chickens are a staple on nearly every survival homestead.
