Living as a Homesteader in Hill Country Ranches

It seems so far removed from the stresses of the city, but the truth is, ranch communities like this exist just a few miles from Texas cities like Austin and San Antonio, right at the heart of Hill Country.

Many people these days choose to live in country homesteads in the country because of the stresses and the pressure that come with city living. Homesteading is basically being self-sufficient—this means you no longer rely on grocery stores or fast-food chains for food. In Texas ranches, you get to plant your own vegetables, raise your own livestock, and grow wheat or hay. Here are a few factors that play big roles in the lives of Texas homesteaders:

Land and Home

The first thing homesteaders consider when buying land is its size. This is because the land area determines where they’re going to build the house, where they’re going to plant the vegetables and fruits, and where they’re going to grow the hay they need to feed the livestock. The house doesn’t have to be humungous, although the land around it has to be.

Livestock

People who live in ranch communities today are usually allowed to raise poultry, cattle, and other forms of livestock. What you raise will depend on your tastes and needs—after all, what’s the point of raising chicken if you don’t like their meat or their eggs?

Crops

As mentioned above, the crops you want to grow are important when you own hill country texas real estate that is part of a ranch community. The type of crops would depend on your tastes and needs, the same as with the animals, as well as the size of your land, the climate, and the soil. A good homesteader would have knowledge about all this, or at least the drive to learn about it.

Kitchen

The kitchen plays a big role in the lives of owners of Hill Country TX real estate. Families who live in ranch communities spend a lot of time in the kitchen, whether cooking meals for the family or preparing meals for guests who have dropped by for dinner. Kitchens in ranches are big, so there should be more than enough space for the processed harvest, food stores, and freezers for the meat.

So if you’re thinking about moving to the country and becoming a homesteader, look for Hill Country Texas real estate for sale that is part of a ranch community. For more information, you can visit blog.buyowner.com/2009/02/top-10-tips-for-buying-vacant-land.htm.
