Never Feel Alone as a Homesteader Again

I remember crying with my husband after ruining my hundredth batch of bread, thinking, “I’m done. I can’t keep doing this!” So many times during those early years I wanted to quit. 

Enter Homestead Kitchen Membership! I’ve committed my career to prevent you from experiencing the same overwhelm I did. We’ve created easy-to-follow processes, courses, and a community to help you make less mistakes and more progress. So you can enjoy fresh foods with your family, a healthier life and the peace of mind that only comes from the freedom of homesteading.  


Everything You Need to Master Homesteading in the Kitchen!

Discover how to manage a peaceful, smoothly running homestead. From filling your shelves with easy meals, to stocking up cold and flu remedies, to mastering chores and assigning daily tasks, the Homestead Kitchen membership will help you master the skills of creating an efficient and well-run homestead.

Master the skills of canning, bread baking, home-dairy making, and herbalism… plus more! Fill your pantry with fresh, yummy, wholesome food, prepare your own bread, make and serve your own dairy products with ease and treat most ailments with safe and effective herbal remedies that have worked for centuries.   

Connect with other like-minded students - Never feel misunderstood or alone again...  Share your successes, your questions and your challenges with hundreds of other like-minded students in our (non Facebook) community!

Avoid HOMESTEAD overwhelm - Know what to do and when to do it as you follow a seasoned homesteader through her year with weekly Coffee with Carolyn videos.

Meet Homesteading Family


We’re Carolyn and Josh Thomas! We live on 40 acres in Idaho with our 11 children where we grow, preserve, and prepare most of our own food right on our property. 

As young parents with a quickly growing family and a desire to feed them healthy, whole foods (even on a tight budget) we knew very quickly that we were going to have to figure out how to grow and cook it ourselves... good food was just too expensive!

But we didn’t have anyone around us that we could ask about how to make this homesteading thing work. We felt completely alone and scrambling for answers while dealing with the demands of life.

We didn’t want others to have to go through the same struggles we experienced, so we created Homesteading Family.

This year, more than ever before, it is so important for families and communities to re-learn the skills of growing and preserving food and caring for the people around us in ways that make us more resilient and less dependent on the government and large corporations. 

From videos and podcasts to courses and workshops, we’ve dedicated our lives and careers to helping people like you live their homesteading dream.  Our YouTube videos have been viewed over 28 MILLION times, with over 500,000 people now subscribed to get our latest content in order to grow their homesteads.

While we are so blessed to get to help others, we also know that this is just the beginning… and now it is time to take the next step by introducing our new community, the Homestead Kitchen Membership.

The Homestead Kitchen Membership will help you transform your home from a consumer based home into a productive and healthy home, alongside hundreds of other like-minded homesteaders!

We hope you join us and can’t wait to see how your homestead grows.
