Raw Milk Poll & A Give-Away!

I must confess that, although this was not a scientific assessment, I was both surprised and relieved to see that no one reading this blog thinks raw milk is dangerous. Perhaps I delude myself and not one wanted to vote that way. But I'm thinking positive thoughts on that!


That said, it sounds like the majority (43%) are convinced it's best, but a good percentage (29%) still think the jury is out. I hope to gently sway you, and the other 26% who think it is just as good as pasteurized milk, that it's even better in the next week or two as I post on some info that may enlighten the debate.

Tired of polls? I hope not. I think it is so fun to get to know you! So, what do you think about food storage and preparedness - otherwise known as "prepping"? Do you think it's silly, unbiblical, a great idea, not sure? Go over to the right hand sidebar and vote your conscience.   

Let's talk GIVE-AWAY! The good people at Hometown Seeds have generously offered some free Survival Seeds to one reader at Homestead Revival. This would be a great opportunity to start a seed bank in your own home. And if times are good, you can still use these in your own garden - just be sure to replace them in your seed bank when you do. 





Right now, their Survival Seeds are 30% off, so it would be a good time to make a purchase. And they have other seeds as well. Add a few annual flowers to your garden and you have a french potager!

Here's how you can enter...

1) Visit Hometown Seeds and come back to leave a comment about your favorite vegetable seed they carry or a new one you'd like to try.

2) Become a follower of Homestead Revival. Please leave a comment when you do. 


It's that easy! But be sure you do so by 8:00 PM (PST) on Wednesday, because that's when the drawing ends. And it would be sad if you missed out!

  1. I went to hometown seeds and they have an amazing variety of seeds. One I would be interested in would be tomatillo seeds since I have never tried to grow them.
    On a different note, I followed your instructions and made goats cheese from raw goats milk. It turned out great!

  6. I have to pick just one?! Can I survive on artichokes?!

    And as you know..I am already a follower. I "knew you when"...lol!

    And...I wonder about this survival seed pack. I will eventually get one for my own freezer. But I wonder...what do we do for food while we're waiting for the seeds to grow?! I suppose this is assuming I have a one-year supply of food on hand?

  7. Good morning, Amy! I went to Hometown Seeds and I would choose the Buttercrunch Lettuce seed, although it was hard to choose one favorite. I am a follower of yours already and I really enjoy your blog. I missed the raw milk survey, but we drink raw milk and I also make cheese from it. Hope your day is blessed! Gail

  8. Ahhh, Michelle. You're a smart cookie! Yep, you need to have something for the meantime! Or you need to order seeds now and start a year round garden. Then keep the Survival Seeds as backup or to expand the garden. If a true catastrophe strikes, most of us will need a larger veggie patch. And most likely, our neighbors will be in need of seeds. A true gospel opportunity as well as a way to demonstrate love.

  18. I would love their sugar snaps or yellow banana peppers - Joe likes to eat them right from the garden when he is playing or working in the back yard... and tomatoes, and carrots (dirt and all)... Sign me up!

  20. I've been browsing the Hometown Seeds site and just can't decide on which seeds to choose. My family eats so much fresh spinach that I should probably try my hand at growing some of that. I'd also like to try growing watermelons.
