Homestead Day

One Starkville couple wants to share years ago homesteaders lived off the land, growing their own food, making clothes and being self sufficient.

Years ago homesteaders lived off the land, growing their own food, making clothes and being self sufficient.

One starkville couple wants to share that way of life.

Our deandria turner went to homestead day and takes a look at people learned how to improve their health, home, and community through intentional living.

Rusty bouchillon spent his teenage years in this house.

His dad built the home himself.

Now the house and property showcases a simpler time.

"my parents would have loved it.

My dad grew up on a farm so he knows all about it.

My mother did not, but she loved people so it would have worked out great."

Bouchillon lives next door and gets to see his childhood home now be a home for the community "it's great to have new faces come out and see mike beuhlr and allison have really did a good job bringing about the homestead and teaching."

Saturday hundreds of people showed up to learn about animals, gardening, home &, and sustainability and holistic childbirth support at their homestead day.

"what's so cool about the homestead is that it's just people from all walks of life that come together to learn about where their food comes from where their energy comes from and how to garden and how to do things that everybody used to know how to do but we've kind of forgotten this is the first time kaeli holeman has been to a homestead day "i'm really here for the bees because i'm going to be a first time bee keeper come spring and this has been such a learning experience for me.

Herbalist mandi sanders put an emphasis on sharing local skills and talents.

"this is more of a community building space for the umbrella of health and home and mindful living."

The day was full of different educational sessions along with local vendors
