Historically, homesteading was a rural choice. Today, with many options such as a home business or telecommuting, homesteading can be in an apartment, a smaller homestead, an urban homestead or a large more traditional homestead.
It has been a popular lifestyle for centuries and has a resurgence. There is satisfaction in growing and producing and crafting and repurposing. Given the current trends, it appears that homesteading will continue to increase in popularity.
