Give Away: Pioneer Drying Rack!

Surprised? I told you that you'd like this give-away! Isn't this a fantastic item? Daniel and Abby at Forgotten Way Farms have a blossoming home based business called Homestead Drying Racks, where they craft these wonderful folding racks for indoor or outdoor clothes drying.


The Pioneer


With hardwood dowels for durability and quality construction, the Pioneer model will open and expand up to 30" wide in order to accomodate your particular drying space. And by folding down to a mere 6", you can store it away when it's not in use.


The fat that this rack is over 5' tall and 3' wide will allow you to dry a lot of items at one time, not to mention the fact that it's strong enough to do the job. The "V" design allows for optimal air flow and drying space. And doesn't it just look lovely? This would definitely be the wat to go "green" in the winter time, or the summer for that matter. I bet this woud fit perfectly on an apartment balcony, in front of a wood stove (but not too close!), in a spare room, or in situations where a permanent clothesline was not allowed.


I want to tell you more about Daniel, Abby, and their family, but the best way is for you to visit their site and see for yourself.


Enter The Give-Away!


1. Visit Homestead Drying Racks and read their "About Us" page (it's short) and check out their products. They have several items they sell including three sizes of drying racks and homesteading DVDs. While you're there, leave a comment on their blog and enter to win the Making Herbs Simple DVD (that give-away ends March 24th).


2. Come back here and leave a comment telling me what you liked at their site. As always, please leave your email if you do not have a blog so that I can contact the winner.


3. Enter a second time by blogging, tweeting, or facebook this give-away so others can learn about their products.


This give-away ends Friday, March 25th, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

  1. I loved that their site is focused on being as self-sustaining as possible, is about FAMILY, and I love the drying racks they make! With our large family, I use every spare place to dry clothing I can. Would be great to have something so simple and efficient to help me with my work! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  4. I'd LOVE to win the drying rack. I'm always hanging everything over the shower rods and laying them on the beds. This would work SO much better. I checked out the site and... I never thought about being a knife thrower, but now I have the wherewithall to make that an option. thanks

  6. Wow! 7 kids. I have a friend who has 6, and they are not living the homestead life yet. I applaud you and your wife for being so resourceful. You are not only preparing for yourselves, but for the future of those kids. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us. Oh, yes. Please enter me for the drying rack. I have a cloths line, but if I had to move, it would come in very handy. Where would I leave my e-mail at? Thank you, Pat

  10. I really admire how Daniel and Abbey just went for it where their dream of homesteading was concerned instead of waiting until everything was convenient. They definitely have the pioneer spirit! Their drying racks look awesome and I am very interested in the Homesteading for Beginners DVD's they offer.

  11. What a wonderful give away! I looked at the website. I love the wire baskets, and the dvds, and just about everything I saw. I live in the suburbs and am the only person I know who hangs clothes on a line, knits, and composts. So sad. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I do not blog...so here is my address:

  12. I love their drying racks! I've been trying to get a wooden drying rack for quite some time now and theirs seem so well made. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to win one, if not, I will just have to buy one.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Definitely all the drying racks. We don't use a dryer and these things would enable us to dry a lot more laundry during the winter!

    ReplyDelete
  14. What a nice give-away.

    I enjoyed so much from my visit over there, I don't know where to begin. First, I enjoyed the simplicity of it all. Their testimony and photos are amazing!

    I have fallen deeply in love with those drying racks. We are planning to cloth diaper our third child who is due to arrive in a couple of months and one of these racks would be a blessing for winter months.

    Thanks for hosting this give-away Amy!

  15. Nice site, I love reading about people who made it by roughing it! If I win, I'm using this rack to dry herbs, it's perfect!! Please enter me, I'll be sharing it on FB too!

  16. I like the drying rack idea too! Pioneer life is sooo simple living...they have the right idea to cut costs and really enjoy life without "life's amenities"...I wish them well..from Mel's Cabin...mpharmon723@yahoo.com

  17. Love these drying racks and also love their site. Would be perfect for drying clothes in my loft during the winter months. I will be following along with them to see all their items.

  19. Please enter me in this giveaway! I could really use a drying rack like that as I don't have a clothesline and we're trying to cut down on using the dryer! I like their whole site but I think the drying racks are my favorite thing. I'm off to read their blog now. Thanks for letting us know about them!

  20. What a gorgeous site! I really enjoy that they have their personal blog on the website, to show the people behind the products. Those farm wire baskets are really pretty too.

  21. What a nice giveaway... thank you for the opportunity! I loved the farm wire baskets on their site, as well as the large drying racks.

  22. Oh wow! I love their blog! WHat a wonderful story of moving to the country and learning to do for themselves! I looked through their store and just loved the homesteader drying rack! What a lovely piece of equipment. My boys were really impressed with the throwing knives!! (of course!) Thanks so much for the chance.

  25. Jumped over to Homestead Drying Racks and fell in love with those drying racks, but I'm also a sucker for those wire baskets. Oh the things I could do with those.

    Lovely blog you have here, going to visit for a bit longer. Thanks for the chance to win. :)

  26. I've been wanting to get the Homestead for Beginners set for some time now and just never got around to it. I used this as an oppurtunity to go ahead and order them.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this drying rack. I, like so many others, live in an area that doesn't allow clothes line. It blows my mind.

  27. Those drying racks are really lovely. It's amazing that something so utilitarian could be so aesthetically pleasing - but I guess that's what happens when products are crafted lovingly by hand, and not in some factory where there is no connection to people or nature. Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. OM goodness I love the wire bins they are selling. And wow all handmade!!!
    I would love to win the drying rack - I was dreaming but it could be great for other things also, like drying herbs. Hmmmmm
    Thanks for a chance at winning!

  29. I really liked their site! My favorite was the Beginners Homestead books they offer...Oh wait maybe the home recipes for elderberry syrup...It's hard to choose.

  35. Winning is not in my DNA but next time I go through N. Idaho I am going to find out where I can go for these. I wanted to pick up a rack for summer clothes on the deck and pasta in the spring and fall....but everything is made in China. Love that these are made close to home, supporting old-fashioned American cottage business. I like the baskets (my knife throwing days are behind me). What a great idea putting chalk board labels on then.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Their story is wonderful. I totally sympathize with Daniel being laid off-we had a similar experience in 2008. No job, no money--very, very scary. The website is very nicely organized and their products are lovely. Please enter me!

  37. What an interesting story they have! I would love to have the pioneer drying rack for my laundry room to use during the winter!

  38. I think the best thing I liked about their blog (life) is their fierce determination! I admire them. :) Thanks.

  39. I just visited their website yesterday and loved it! Their drying racks look very sturdy and well built and it would be so amazing if I won one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Homestead Drying Rack website was very informative as well as vibrant! What an amazing family! Not many people can say that they can live off the grid with such success. The drying racks would be a world of help for drying my herbs. I currently grow a large variety of herbs mostly for cooking right now, but I would love to learn how to make herbal teas too! Thanks for providing such a wonderful link. I have added their blog link on my blog as well. There is so much to learn about urban homesteading and how to decrease our carbon footprint. This is very helpful to those of us who live in urban areas. I also like how the drying rack could be used for drying clothes in a portable manner. Many people are reluctant to place a clothes drying line up due to limited space but a drying rack that is portable is a great answer!

  41. Love their site! I really love, and could use, the wire farm baskets. Great vintage look! And the drying rack is a wonderful giveaway!

  42. Hmmm....lots of neat stuff at their site. The Homesteader Drying Rack is awesome, as are the smaller sizes. The Homesteading for Beginners DVDs look like something I really could have used a few years back and would be a great resource to point others to.

  45. Amy, you were right! I do love this giveaway... My mother in law has a drying rack on her sun porch. I loved this site and I am also excited about the cool Farm Wire storage baskets they sell... I was looking at Ikea for something similar but they were too modern for my taste! Great give away!
    thanks!

  46. Their story is so interesting! I can't wait to spend more time reading through their blog. I love the drying rack and also think their books on Homesteading would be a great investment.
    I entered to win the Making Herbs Simple DVD...sounds interesting!

  48. What a story on The Forgotten Way Blog! Wow. Truly amazing how they live off-grid. I truly love their drying racks and the wire baskets. I also signed up for that great herb DVD.
    I'm hoping to do do more line & rack drying this year. A complete changeover would be nice; but one small step at a time! A rack would be wonderful for our long winter months here!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Loved their site! I subscribed to their blog! Thanks for sharing and please include me in the drawing! I have an old drying rack that was my mom's and would love another one!

    ReplyDelete
  50. LOL What's not to like? I wish they'd have included a little more description about those Throwing Knives, but they look intriguing. I liked those baskets - there are always things to organize, but I dislike plastic, and wicker breaks too easily.

    You didn't mention if the contest is for US only, or if it includes Canada, so I understand if it's US only. :) Let me know - if it includes Canada, I'll post it on my blog.

  52. Thank you for this opportunity to win one of their drying racks. I have been dreaming of having one for some time now. I have been using my chairs in my dining room, and they just don't work very well. I have visited their sight before, but this was the first time I have ever read their story. It gives me strength and courage to keep going in the face of so many obstacles. Just what I needed today. Your website is beautiful thank you. Holly email: farm@inbox.com

  55. I love the drying racks of course but really, really love the produce wire baskets as well. We eat a ton of produce so these would be very useful in our home.

    ReplyDelete
  56. After visiting the Homestead Drying Racks site, I think I was most impressed by their story: the courage, trust, hard work and ingenuity they put into going off-grid. But...I loved their drying racks as well! I've been talking about getting a drying rack for ages (we rent, and don't have a clothesline), but haven't been terribly impressed by what I've seen. One of theirs would be fabulous...especially for hanging all the cloth diapers and covers for our little one!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thank you so much for introducing me to this great website. As it turns out, Forgotten Farms is only 20-30 minutes from my home in North Idaho. I'm excited to read their blog. I would LOVE the Homesteader drying rack. Right now, I use everything I can think of as a drying rack in my home: shower doors, railings, chairs, etc. This would be a perfect solution!
    Thanks Amy!

  59. Hello Amy, thank you for sharing with us about Homestead Drying Racks, I enjoyed visiting their home page as well as entering their giveaway. We grew up with drying racks. I love that big rack.

  69. Forgotten Ways Farm has a very interesting story. I have never seen large drying racks like that before. My outside lines are not up yet. Boy a drying rack like that would be terrific.

  70. I entered their DVD giveaway and read their about me page. I love their story and I love the drying racks they make. I grew up living next door to my great grandmother and we used to use her clothes line, I miss being able to dry clothes outside. I miss a lot about those days! In our rental home now there isn't a logical place to put up a clothes line. I do dry outside a little bit, but can't do a lot.

  72. Oh I just love their drying racks, and they look like they will hold a lot of clothing, I use a drying rack everyday (I go to a pool 3 days a week and hang my swimsuit and towels) plus I use them for laundry...so my favorite is this one: Homesteader" Clothes Drying Rack, I love the size of this one.

    Thanks for sharing

  73. I guess the thing I liked most about their blog was the story of how they camped out for six months while building their home. Before I got too old, that was what I wanted to do, and actually still would if I had help!

    ReplyDelete
  74. WOW. Seriously, wow. Their short and simple "about us" page was really inspiring to me.
    I could use one of these....if I don't win it, I may have to buy it! We hang our clothes outside in the summer but I use the dryer in the winter. One of these would be great next to our wood stove. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win one Amy!

Would love to have all of them. Also my boys would love the throwing knives. Will have to wait just a little on that one. Anyway they have some nice things. Thanks for posting about them. God Bless.

  77. Love this giveaway and the beautiful rack. I went to Forgotten Way Farms and left a comment for their giveaway. What I absolutely love are the wire baskets they have for sale. I am so glad I did not buy the ones I've been eyeing at a big box store. As soon as we have our pantry moved in (we just bought a new home), I will definitely be investing in some of these. Thanks for the giveaway. kmimming@gmail.com

  78. I would make good use of this dryer! We are full time RV-ing and this would go perfect with our manual 'washing machine'. I liked the fact that the makers of this dryer live off the grid.

  85. I love stories of off-grid living! I think I was born too late ~ the idea of living a pioneer lifestyle is so appealing, but I think I would fail miserably! But I do love camping ~ and I don't mean in an RV! Real tent camping in spots that you must back pack to! For a few days anyway! ;~P
    Their story is amazing and so are their products! I would love to win one of those great drying racks because living in Washington doesn't have a lot of dry days for line drying. NOTHING dries in the winter ~ too much rain!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these great racks!

  93. Talk about making due with what you have...I really do not know that I could have gone that path it shows how dedicated they are to their goals. Like I commented on FB the racks are amazing I had a similar smaller one for years that was a hand me down and it was great for drying indoors or out...and was nice to save space...I would love to have one again...

    ReplyDelete
  94. I am relatively new to your blog and have been really enjoying it! Thank you for all the information and resources. It is definitely an encouragement to me :) We are a family of 7 just starting our journey to a more self sufficient lifestyle, but it can be intimidating as well as liberating. I've been looking for ways to ditch the dryer, but couldn't find a solution for the colder months. Those racks are incredible. I would love to hang all our loads :) I also loved reading a bit of their story...very inspiring. Thanks again!

  108. LOVE their site. Their story is so inspirational and I love the idea behind their self sufficiency products, including this fabulous clothes rack.
    I would LOVE to win this.I have wanted an outdoor "clothesline" since I moved here..but don't have good trees for it, unlike the home where I grew up. Need to have that clean-smelling-fresh-from-the-sun fix! xoxo

  111. How fun! My boys have broken quite a few of the hanging bars off of my drying rack.
    I like all the "how to" kind of things they have... the herbs, throwing knives, sustainability... off the grid living.

  114. I have been wanting a drying rack like this for years!!! I loved visiting their site, and reading their story. I also liked the wire file things they have for sale...I'd love to have one of those. :)

  115. I like the fact that postage is included in price

  116. I looked at their blog last night through the barn hop. Amazing, I love that they are off grid,I so could not do that. I also like the knife throwing kit, I think I will get one for my son's b-day in Aug.; he'd get a kick out of that.

  117. I just added this site to my reader, I was eye-ing the drying racks for future use....would love the dvd set however!

  118. Oh my! I've reduced my dryer usage by over 75% this winter and wouldn't the Homesteader rack be useful to me! Much nicer than clothes strung up all over the basement ;D

    Thanks!!

  124. I loved the fact that they were able to get their house finished before winter! They reminded me of Little House on the Prairie. I love the size of the drying rack, great for those of us who do a lot of laundry.

  125. Amy, thanks so much for all that you share with us here on your blog. I also appreciate how you are all about community and sharing with each other. Enjoyed visiting the Forgotten Way blog and look forward to reading more about them. I love the Pioneer Drying Rack and the Farm Wire Baskets. It would be awesome to win :)

  126. can not stop reading! love it all!

  127. I have one of these racks and they are truly beautiful. Very well made, and large! But I want very much to give one to a friend, so I will hope to win. When warm weather comes and I can hang clothes out, I want to use my rack on my porch for decoration and hang vintage linens on it. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Right now it is snowing like crazy and we are expecting 2-3 feet. I loved their idea of putting the rack next to the door when you come in from outside and can put all of your snowcovered clothes on the racks.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I think the Pioneer drying wrack would be the best size for our current home and family! I enjoyed looking through their site.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I also shared this give-away on Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  131. This drying rack would be great! We've always wanted to dry outside, but with multiple environmental allergies we haven't been able to. This would enable us to skip the dryer and dry inside! I also liked their Beginning Homestead DVD, I think I could learn a lot from it. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  132. I've been eying racks like these. How wonderful to have one from such a great family! I enjoy the natural remedy post and think all the racks are wonderful. The wire baskets were cute, too!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Wow! I just read all of their posts. I love their story. That is commitment, I want to be that strong!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I love the blog, actually, that tells their story. I also really like the drying racks, especially since I don't have a clothes line, and when I want to dry things outside I just have to hang things over the chain link fence. Not very classy looking ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  135. I have been looking for a sturdy way to dry clothes on my deck, this would be perfect. I also loved the baskets that they make!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Please enter me in the giveaway. I also love the drying racks, after searching the internet only to find either small or flimsy drying racks. I also like the wire baskets. Dh wants me to read the blog to him to learn what we can do more at our farm.

  139. What a neat family! Homesteading as been becoming quite a fascination to me, and I loved to hear how they got started!

    Thank you for sharing this site, not only because of the giveaway, but for the wealth of info they have!

    Thank you for introducing me to this new blog, I loved reading their story and the fact that they have a home based business. My husband just lost his job of 12 years and we are trying to think of some sort of home based business. Would love to win the drying rack! I never have enough space n my current drying rack!

    ReplyDelete
  144. I really like this rack and the dvd set would be useful too since we still have so much to learn! The rack would certainly help to reduce our winter propane bills! I blogged about it too: http://modernlittlehomestead.blogspot.com/2011/03/another-awesome-giveaway.html

  145. I would love to win the drying wrack and give it to my mom! I love reading about anything homesteading related!

    ReplyDelete
  146. I would love to win the largest drying rack. We are a family of six and currently dry our clothes outside in the warmer months and just began talking about and investigating indoor racks for next winter! LOVE those wire baskets - they are just what I have been looking for for my office!

  147. Thank you! Wow their resourcefullness of living off the land literally just amazes me. I live in a main city with a JOB. God is calling me to serve in more of a simpliar life and my husband is too. Our dream is slowly going that way. we are looking for land and then chickens are next. Thank you. LOVE the drying wrack. My clothes line pole fell last year and I so miss it.

  148. I loved their quest for land in the country. My husband and I want our own farm someday too!

    ReplyDelete
  149. I love the Homesteader Drying Rack. I compared it to the drying rack I am using now, and it would hold more than twice as much laundry. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  150. I liked seeing someone else doing something similar to what our family is doing ; ) That doesn't happen very often. We are not living w/o electricity as our electric co-op made it very easy to get electricity, but we've had to live life the adventurous and sometimes hard way, yet its worth every bit of sacrifice.

    I love how they're making their unconventional lifestyle an entrepreneurial venture.

    We could definitely use the drying rack ; )

    ReplyDelete
  151. I love their drying racks but I really love their courage! Looking forward to kepping up with them on their blog.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I read through their blog Monday and really loved learning their story! Oh... and already entered for their giveaway too.

    Thanks for this chance. I'd love a drying rack at all... but this one is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Just finished entering Forgotten Farms blog...wow, what great items. As I noted on their site, I am one of the last of the baby-boomer generation, but I have small children. I would like to offer them something better than what we had...a connection to real and simple. I have recently become aware of my "imprisonment" to the American Dream, and I look to a simpler life as our keys of escape. Thanks for sharing with in your blog...i am encouraged!

  154. Loved the drying racks and their story of homestead "camping" without water -so not sure if i'm gutsy enough for that. currently, i have an umbrella type drying system that works indoors and out, but i would love to win this for my mother as she only has a little drying rack and ends up using the dryer for big items like towels and sheets. thanks for offering this giveaway. blessings.

  155. I can't read through all the other comments, there are SO MANY!! Maybe someone else said the same thing I'm saying.

    I want to do what they have done... immersion I guess is it. They chose a lifestyle and jumped in over their heads, sink or swim. My philosophy on life has long been, "why bob the dog's tail an inch at a time?" and this would have been my choice if I had been free to make it.

    If I don't win a thing I'm glad you directed me to their site. Thx!

  156. Oh, I posted this give away on my facebook. :)

  157. Well, this blog has been a wealth of information. Thanks for sharing! While I know I am one of many, I too would like the drying rack. How great that I can use it outdoors in the warmer months and indoors when the weather is cool. I've never seen them before and would find this very beneficial for my household. I'm tired of having the hanger marks in the shoulders on my sweaters. Thanks again for everything. You are a blessing!

  158. I use drying racks now and really could use a sturdier one.

  160. Loved the fact that she used a wringer washer! I remember those very well. I would love to have the drying rack! I babysit my grandblessing and the rack would come in handy when I have to rinse out her clothing but don't have enough for a large load!

  167. I have used a simple vintage drying rack for years, that is until it broke. Now I use my shower rod and dirty out door line when weather permits. Would love this fancy, multi leveled rack, WOW!

    ReplyDelete
  168. I loved the story of how they came to their life now and how content they seem as a family. And the drying racks look so sturdy and big compared to the three flimsy small ones I use now!

  169. Just popped back over to say I blogged about the giveaway too!

  171. I have been admiring the drying racks since you recently linked to their site for the herbs DVD. They look to be very sturdy. The Pioneer is a great size, too.

  173. Their story is so inspiring. I truly enjoyed reading all about their experiences and how they have gotten to where they are, so many are in simlar positions with all of the layoffs and the poor economy now-a-days, it is so sad. They seemed to make the very best of the situation and are now reaping the rewards. I loved their wire baskets they are just beautiful, along with everything else they offer! I don't enter too many giveaways but anyone would be crazy not to try to enter this one. I so enjoy your blog as well and am off to catch up on your past posts too. I will be putting both of your blogs on my sidebar as well. Thank you for directing us to Not Forgotten Way farms and hosting such a lovely giveaway! Take good care, Dee from Farmhousecountrystyle.blogspot.com

  179. Thank you for sharing this blog! Loved all the items. Especially the Homesteader drying rack and the sweet "old" looking wire baskets. Just may have to get me a couple of those. :) Being a mom and mammaw (grew up in the south) I remember many times of hanging out laundry with my mom and grandma...and then for my family too. Sure would love to win this great rack!
