Homesteading is the ultimate self-sustaining lifestyle. They can vary in size and scale, with full-scale being self reliant on itself for everything such as food, power, and water. However, even smaller homesteads pride themselves on being as self-sustaining and eco-friendly as possible.
Because sustainability is a main aspect of homesteading, the use of chemicals is generally reduced. Especially in the garden, true homesteaders try to be as organic as possible. For one, chemical usage can impact the health of your soil and decrease the nutrient content in your food. Animals on antibiotics or hormone treatments have lesser quality meat and eggs. Lastly, chemicals can be toxic and generally add more waste with their containers.
Effective Microorganisms® is the ultimate product for homesteading by being a truly sustainable product that is beneficial to human, animal, and environmental health. Pure organic beneficial microorganisms work with local and native organisms to bring balance to any environment they are introduced to (digestive systems, soil, water, and more).
