Inherit the Land: Franklin Springs DVD Giveaway!

**This Giveaway is now Closed. Congratulations to Jessica K!!**

You guys are in for a real treat!!

I’m so excited. I just love being a middleman for bestowing blessings on others. And I think you’ll be excited too…

The always generous people at Franklin Springs are offering another one of their newer titles to one of my wonderful readers- Inherit the Land: Adventures on the Agrarian Journey.

Isn’t that awesome?!

I was blessed with the opportunity to watch this film recently, and let me tell you, it’ll inspire you to homestead no matter where you are in life!

The film follows several families as they share their experiences with working their land. From families with thousands of acres to farm, to those who have a small lot with a backyard garden on the outskirts of town, each share their reasons for wanting to get back to living a simpler life, and give an intimate glimpse into their daily responsibilities.

What touched me the most when watching this documentary was the profound effects this homesteading lifestyle had on the children, and the family as a whole. There’s nothing like working as a team, day in and day out, to build relationships and bring family members closer together. So much of that has been lost in today’s fast paced society.

I think you’ll be blessed by watching this film as well.

Inherit the Land – Trailer from Franklin Springs on Vimeo.

    That’s the first I’ve heard of this video–sounds right up our alley! I’d love the chance to get to watch it. Any encouragement helps. I have to admit that even though I know we’re doing the right thing by living out in the country and continually working to keep increasing our self-sufficiency and provide for ouselves, there are days when those thoughts creep into my head telling me it would just be so much easier to move back into a house in a subdivision on a small lot and let go of all this work! It’s definitely a lifestyle–one that we like, yet it can be very tiring at times!

  • Rhenda said:

    Thanks for the great giveaway.. :) I would love to have the video for a few reasons.

    One, we just left our home of seventeen years and scaled down to a travel trailer. In the spring when the weather breaks wee are moving to some rural acreage and beginning the life we dreamed of. Any help, encouragement or anything to feed the need we have to see others doing the things we’re planning is more than welcome!

    Two, our kids have been in the same home for their entire lives. We are life long home schoolers and I am sold on the benefits they will reap regardless of the trials and whatnot, and although my husband can understand that, he is still very concerned that it may be too hard on them. I think it could help him get over that last hurdle.

    Thanks again!!

  • Meredith said:

    I subscribed to your blog for the last giveaway and forgot to leave a comment so I will for this one!

  • Meredith said:

    My husband and I are missionaries in Ethiopia. We feel the Lord might be calling us back to the States and we are going to attempt homesteading from what He is laying on our hearts and what we have learned from living among the world’s poor here. I actually just added this to my wishlist at frankin springs (found out about them through your last giveaway) so when we get some special money we can start a Franklin Springs library to leave for other missionaries here at the school library. We are in need of some quality DVDS!

  • Denise said:

    I would be thrilled to win this video!!!

  • Sue D said:

    We have a little homestead and would like to see others.

  • Jessie said:

    This would be a great encouragement to live a different lifestyle. I think that if my husband saw how that it is possible he would have more confindance in this way of life. Plus I think that there is nothing better for a family then to be able to work hard together. And being the homemaker I would love to see how others continue to do this and what can I learn from these encourageing ladies. That’s why I love reading blogs. Well, you said to leave a comment and I wrote a book! oops, lol!

    Thanks for the chance to win,
    Jessie

  • Ash said:

    I’m in the “read everthing I can get my hands on” phase of working towards a semi-homestead, so this would be great. By semi-homesteading, I mean that we’re working toward raising as much of our food as possible and buying or bartering for the rest from our neighbors, while I stay at home and my husband works full time. For now, most of my reading is online–books are expensive!–but our only choice for internet connection is via cell tower and is sketchy at best. Books are so much more reliable!

    Thanks,
    Ash

    I would like to watch this videa with my family. It seams like every year we are moving a little closer to homesteading, and it’s fun to get ideas from others.

  • Shaye @ The Elliott Homestead said:

    Oh oh oh! I’d love to see how it can actually be done. My feeble (but whole-hearted!) attempts at homesteading could always use some inspiration!

  • Angela said:

    The Lord has laid on my heart to move from our subdivision to live closer to the land. Because of my husband’s commute we see him about two hours in the evening. That does not a family make. I had not heard about the video and would be blessed to know more. Thank you from a first time stumbler to your site.

    We began our homesteading adventure almost a year ago and feel like we have made a lot of progress! But we have SO much more to learn. It’s the most rewarding thing to see my whole family embracing this new lifestyle and feeling the benefits. I would love to have this movie to refer to for both inspiration on the hard days and tons of information and ways to do things better! Good luck to everyone and thanks for the opportunity!!
    P.S. I’m subscribed ;)

  • Rita said:

    This sounds awesome! Exactly what my husband and I hope to achieve some day…. Sooner rather than later. For now we are practicing on our lot on the edge of town with our four kids and our two pygmy goats. Always gardening and canning and looking for better ways of doing things. This spring will see goat milk and chickens for eggs and hopefully a better functioning greenhouse. Thanks for the chance to win and expand our ideas and knowledge.
