Join me for an interview with John Davis from Laughlin Farms all about homesteaders and our hesitation to sell.

Featured Event: Midwest Preparedness Project Spring Event

Sponsor 1: DiscountMylarBags.com
Sponsor 2: HollerRoast.com

John Davis is a resident of beautiful Columbiana county Ohio and is a homesteader, rancher, engineer, and owner of a business that is a professional outsourced sales firm for high tech industrial automation companies. On the homestead front, he and his wife and kids raise and direct market St. Croix sheep, heritage turkeys, pasture raised chicken, and heritage Berkshire pork. The Davis homestead also has two horses, and John is training to be a discount wannabe cowboy in pursuit of impressing his wife. Professionally, John is the second generation owner of Paul Davis Automation, and has been a professional salesperson in the industrial automation space for over 15 years.

1. Why are homesteaders awful salespeople?
2. But, aren't salespeople annoying and out trying to fleece their customers in pursuit of maximum profit? I just want to help people out and sell my stuff as cheap as possible!
3. Why is profit so important if my homestead isn't my main job?
4. How do I even know if I am profitable? What is COGS, gross margin, net margin, how do I calculate them, and how do they apply to my homestead operations?
5. How do I write a business plan for my homestead? How do I actually go into business? Isn't this super expensive and complicated? I just want to sell whatever I grow. Why would I overcomplicate my life?
6. I'm already doing everything we talked about, but I am awful at selling. How do I be a better salesperson for my homestead? Can I practice sales, even if I am an introvert?
7. A lot of homestead content is focused on the growing aspects of homesteading. How do I actually get my product to market? How do I determine if I should direct market or use the sale barn?

Tales from the Prepper Pantry

  • AJ is in the house and we are doing a final push in the prepper pantry this week in advance of the LFTN Spring Workshop
  • Last minute event chili for the potluck this weekend
  • Tossing the frozen greens
  • New pantry racks from Grumpy Acres

Weekly Shopping Report from Joe

Dollar Tree is no longer on our rounds because it is not the best way to get a dose of caffein for our shopping day.

We hit both Hobby Lobby (for Sonia) and Lowe's (for me). Although we did not go to Home Depot, a 2x4x8 there has gone up again, to $3.73. 

Aldi was next. They did not have any lettuce, but other produce was available in normal amounts. They also only had half a case of canned cat food. Staple prices were: eggs: $2.05; whole milk: $2.86; heavy cream: $5.19; OJ: $3.29; butter: $3.69; bacon: $4.25; potatoes: $3.99; sugar: $3.09; flour: $2.35; and 80% lean ground beef: $4.09. Despite rumblings I'm reading about a cocoa shortage, the 70% chocolate I like was available, and still at the usual price of $1.99.

We're out of lettuce, so our last stop was Food City. They had some, although many of the heads were rather light, and some showed more rot than usual. I also grabbed a case of Friskies cans and a 22 lb. bag of the Meow Mix that our cats ask for by name.

A gallon of untainted regular gasoline remains at $3.599.

Frugality Tip from Margo

Make your own mixes and sauces. I have been making my own taco seasoning for years but today I made enchilada sauce. 

Someone loves the ground pork enchiladas I make and wanted to make some, but did not have enchilada sauce in the pantry. So I went to Online (Pinterest) and looked up a recipe. Making it from scratch, you can adjust the seasoning to your own liking and what you have on hand.  I used bone broth instead of vegetable stock; I used olive oil not grapeseed oil, I used more garlic and less Cinnamon than the recipe called for. Recipes are guidelines, they are not set in stone. Use what you like to eat and don't be afraid to substitute or omit ingredients.

I actually have enough to save half for next time.  Next I will make homemade tortillas, I know Nicole says they are so easy to make, but one thing at a time. 

Go make something you haven't made before.

 

Operation Independence

  • Someone backed out of our ram so we decided to process it ourselves saving nearly $100
