Jill is a wife, a mother of two wonderful kids and the brain behind The Prairie Homestead.com. She lives a homesteading-prairie life, hence, the name of her website. The idea of the website came to be, when they moved to their farm in 2008. It all started when Jill asked her husband to build her a compost pit to get rid of their horse manure. While researching for processes on proper compost she came across several websites that got her immersed in natural ways of food production and finally the road to homesteading. She had this inkling that there is a homestead persona in everyone so she stared her website to spread the word of the happy homestead life in the prairie.
Jill shares her ideas, experiences and new knowledge on the website. She put up sections that will surely interest the readers. One of the sections there is called Real Food Recipes. This section contains the recipes that she conducts everyday at her home. It may be a recipe she experimented on her own or a recipe she found somewhere but whatever it is, she unravels every detail about it for the benefit of the readers.
The Barnyard section is all about the animals, the bar and important things you have to know about them, like how to treat bites from dogs and a lot more. Homestead love is the section where you’ll find things new or old that everyone will love about homesteading. Homestead living is another section that has fun DIY projects.
There is also a section called Being Prepared. When you live in a prairie or in any farm a lot of things could happen and the hospital is too far along but in this particular section Jill shows the first aids and what to do when an emergency happens. The Country Kids section is a wonderful compilation of posts that are in accordance to her kids and anything that involves child care. There’s also a section for flowers, herbs, fruits, veggies and gardening, the Gardening and Growing section.
It may seem as though this website has it all but there’s more. Jill also made a section for her thought and all of these in Prairie Reflections. She shares her joy and satisfaction all through out the website about living a simple life in the prairie.
