Not to be confused with Amish communities and communes, homesteadingÂ is defined by the lifestyle choices of individuals and families. Foremost, itâ€™s a lifestyle ofÂ self-sufficiency, including subsistence gardening, food from livestock, food preservation, and sometimes, the production of household items for use or for sale. Some even live completelyÂ off the grid.
Usually involving a family (or family group) living together on a single property this growing demographic combines their self-reliant lifestyle withÂ survival. As for the latter, the goal of maximizing self-dependence results in readiness for when things turn ugly; dangerous weather and loss of power come to mind.
Whether for day-to-day life or planning and surviving emergency situations, homesteaders need fire â€“ and a dependable fire-starting solution, beyond the oven, stove, and microwave.
