Affiliate Disclaimer

Hello from the Homesteading Family! We believe in transparency so we want to make sure that you are aware, this is us “disclosing”, that we earn an affiliate commission from some purchases you make of the tools, ingredients, and products that we link to on

One of our priorities is to share what we have learned, what has worked, and what has not. When we find something that works, we share it! If we believe in it, then we may take the additional step of creating an affiliate link or savings program through the manufacturer or distributor such as Amazon.

We love supporting small businesses and families with an entrepreneurial spirit. So whenever possible, we will work directly with these businesses and folks when recommending a product or service.

The Homesteading Family’s online presence has grown to the point that it is nearly impossible to go back through and list each and every program that we have an affiliate agreement with. With this in mind, you should assume that any links leading you to products or services are affiliate links that we will receive compensation from, just to be safe.

To be clear, this is how we work – if we find a product we like and have tested and use ourselves, then we may contact the manufacturer and see if there are savings to be passed along to you, and compensation to us. Notice the order there – identifying a product we believe in comes first, any financial arrangements come second. We will never switch that order and recommend any product or service based first on the financial benefit to us. We value you as part of the Homesteading Family and the trust you extend to us far too much to ever blur those lines. Even more importantly, that is just not how we were raised. is also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to

This just means that if we reference a product from Amazon, then the link we create is a link. It DOES NOT mean we share any additional information with Amazon…zero. 

If you have any questions regarding this disclaimer, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Happy homesteading!
