Once a year I make soap. It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients, but it does take a lot of work, to make several years’ worth of homemade healthy, clean soap that doesn’t dry out your skin like commercial body soaps can. Many of the ingredients I have to order (i order mine from Essential Depot), but our home raised grassfinished beef tallow and my neighbour’s beeswax are key ingredients as well.
We don’t manage bees on our farms, but our neighbour does and he shares beeswax with me. Lots of ways to farm. Thanks to our neighbour, Kevin, for caring for bees and their hives and producing great honey. He stopped by last week and gave me some wax.
Agricultural production opportunities abound, but none that i’ve found come without dedication, hard work, and passion. It’s unlikely you’ll become financially wealthy either, but there is more to life than that.
