Living Old Fashioned in a Modern World

Families today are struggling to make ends meet. They are working longer hours for less pay, and they are worried about how they will provide for their families in the future.

In addition, families are facing a number of other challenges.

They are struggling to find time to spend together. They are worried about the state of the world, and they are concerned about the future of their children.

But there is hope. There are families who are choosing to live old fashioned in a modern world.

They are incorporating traditional methods such as family farming, gardening, cooking from scratch, and preserving their own food into their lifestyles.

Not only does this provide more security for their families, but it also teaches them valuable skills that can be passed down for generations.

So if you’re ready to make a real difference in the world, why not give homesteading a try?

Bonnie Von Dohre - The Not so Modern Housewife - Living Old Fashioned in a Modern World

Hi, I’m Bonnie

I’m a mom, wife, and coffee addict who teaches other moms how to produce food for their families without feeling overwhelmed.

My family and I own and operate a 5-acre homestead in Central Florida, raising chickens, ducks, turkeys, guinea fowl, rabbits, goats, pigs, and horses.

In addition to all of that, I homeschool my three kids and try to live a more simple, old-fashioned life in a modern world.

I started this blog as a way to share what we’ve learned with other families who are interested in homesteading, but don’t know where to start.

My goal is to help you build the confidence you need to take that first step towards producing your own food, whether that means starting a garden or buying a goat. Whatever it is, I want to help you turn your homesteading dreams into reality.

I believe that homesteading is a lifestyle, not a destination. It’s a journey that you take one step at a time, and there is no “right” way to do it. Just start where you are, with what you have, and go from there.

In a world where technology and convenience rule, more and more people are looking to the past for solutions to the problems we face in the present.

Living not so modern means incorporating traditional methods such as family farming, gardening, cooking from scratch, and preserving your own food into your lifestyle. Not only will this provide more security for your family, but it will also teach them valuable skills that can be passed down for generations.

Many mothers worry that they won’t be able to provide their families with enough food. I teach women how to produce and get food from local sources, so they never have to worry about food scarcity again.

The advantages of looking to traditional living methods are:

  1. Learn valuable skills that can be passed down for generations.
  2. Provide more security for your family.
  3. Live with a focus on holistic health.
  4. Live more sustainably.
  5. Have a lot of fun!

There’s nothing more old-fashioned than providing security for your family through traditional methods like family farming, gardening, cooking from scratch, and preserving our own food.

Whether you’re interested in homesteading for the solitude, the self-sufficiency, or the amazing homegrown food, one thing is for sure: it teaches valuable skills.

And once you have those skills, you can pass them down to future generations. Just think, someday your great grandkids might be telling their kids all about the homesteading skills they learned from you!

When it comes to providing security for your family, homesteading is a great option.

Why?

Well, for one thing, you’re less reliant on external factors beyond your control.

And that can give you a lot of peace of mind.

But homesteading isn’t just about providing for your family in times of need. It’s also about teaching them valuable skills that will last a lifetime.

If you’re interested in living a not-so-modern lifestyle that incorporates traditional methods like family farming, gardening, cooking from scratch, and preserving your own food, you’ve come to the right place.

I’ll be sharing homesteading tips and tricks that will help you provide more security for your family while also teaching them valuable skills that can be passed down for generations.
