A lot of people are afraid to start homesteading because they’re concerned about the costs, or how to make money homesteading.

In today’s episode of What The Cluck?!, I talk to Roe Harris of Harris Homestead – Sumterville, FL. 

Roe has run a successful meat chicken business from her homestead in Florida for the past 6 years.

In this podcast, we discuss how to start a meat chicken and homestead business and how to make it successful.

You’ll learn:

  • How Roe started and maintains her meat chicken business
  • The one thing you need to do in order to be successful
  • Why selling eggs isn’t always your best bet
  • Why listening to your customers is so important
  • Why flexibility is critical to success
