Maine – Fish farming is an old agricultural method that modern homesteaders can use today. A great source of continuous protein, freshwater fish farms allow anyone to grow a different variety of fish that can be used for personal consumption.

While it may be hard work to get started, building a fish farm can be rewarding, fun, and can really pay off in the long run when you may not have a lot of money to spend on food. It could also be a good income source if you have other people around you who are in need of additional food.

Hawaii – Do you have some renegade free range hens that like to lay eggs anywhere except their nesting boxes?

Here are some pictures that will show you some strategies to determine their age and put them in order so that you eat/sell them in the right order.  We also have some cool ways to store them in the refrigerator so that you can use/sell them in order of their laying date.

OregonIf you’ve ever raised chickens, you know that walking into a chicken coop and shooing chickens out of the way can be a time consuming task.

But if you build your nests to tilt slightly forward or backwards, the eggs will roll out where they are easy to see and collect.

North Dakota – Here are some pictures that show how to build a Chicken, Duck and/or Rabbit Butchering Station for quick meat processing as well as easy clean and carcass disposal.

The good news is that if you have a bin of Black Soldier Flies (BSF), they will eat everything except bones and feathers and transform all of your carcasses and entrails into free chicken feed.

BSF will multiple your ability to increase waste by a factor of 40x what you started with and are one of the most efficient animals on the planet for turning any kind of feed into a useful source of protein.

BSF can be fed live to chickens, just like meal worms and crickets. Chickens love them. Or they can be frozen and used for wintertime feed when nothing else is growing.

A butchering state right in front of the chicken coop is a  great way to let the flock know that anyone who makes trouble or quits laying eggs will be sacrificed for the dinner table due to lack of egg production. hehehe. I have a cruel sense of humor.

How to Build an Outdoor Solar Heated Shower for Your Off Grid Cabin

New Mexico – Outdoor showers are a great way to get clean outdoors, a smart way to provide an auxiliary shower for guests during a crowded weekend and a convenient place to clean up sandy feet or after messy yard work. But the question is: What type of outdoor shower? A fully plumbed shower can be complicated. A solar powered shower, on the other hand, is appealing in its simplicity.

But you can still enjoy a warm – and fashionably green – shower under a blue sky by making a few tweaks to the traditional design. In this shower plan, the tank is replaced with a homemade solar coil connected to a garden hose, with both cold and hot supply lines. The end result is an open-topped, efficient solar shower with plenty of pressure and a quick recharge time, perfect for a quick rinse after yard work or before going for a dip in the hot tub or a steam in the sauna.

Off Grid Living Bathroom and Outhouse Design Ideas

Arizona – Many off grid cabins use self composting or septic systems. In addition, many off grid bathrooms are designed to conserve and separate gray from #2 waste which is either composted or fed into a septic tank.

If you’ve never hear of using black soldier flies in tandem with composting toilets, you should do some research on them. They are a great way to turn human manure into free chicken feed.

Different areas of the country have different regulations about this. For example, most cities are against it and only more rustic regions of the country will generally be accepting. Even if you are allowed to have one however there will be a lot of restrictions put in place including the distance away from any water source for sanitary reasons.

Feel free to like, share and make comments about which off grid bathroom design you think will work best for your home.
