Suzanne Upton- Simple Homestead Living- Fermentation; Canning; Homestead Herbals

Suzanne Upton is a North Carolina native homesteader and a second generation Prepper.  She grew up in a large family with acres of gardens, harvesting and preserving food as naturally as possible.  She began canning with her mother at seven years old and learned sustainability from ‘mountain folk’ grandparents.  Her homestead now is a happy little mix of chickens, goats, raised vegetable beds, cold frames, herbs gardens and fruit orchards designed make the most of a sustainable lifestyle.

Over the years she began delving into food preservation by fermenting; the centuries-old art of preserving food with lots of wonderful flavors, healthy probiotics and extra nutrition.  This includes wine making, big crocks of kraut and fermenting her harvests of vegetables, as well as homemade vinegars and herbal tinctures. From fermented krauts made with foraged foods found in the wild, as well as spring-to-winter harvests, fermenting includes vegetables, seasonings, aged cheeses, meats, and fruits with salt or honey. It’s a natural food diet and a big part of a sustainable prepper lifestyle.

 Suzanne’s focus is on healthy, sustainable prepping.  She believes prepping is more than just stocking instant foods in a pantry.  Being able to quickly replace nutritional food in a time of disaster is key.  And making sure that food is healthy, delicious and plentiful as well as frugal is so important in any stressful prepper-type situation. 

Suzanne readily passes on her growing, harvesting and preserving abilities, teaching others about healthy preservation techniques of canning and dehydrating for survival, but especially concentrating on fermenting for sustainable prepping.

There is so much more to see and learn at her homesteading and video website,
