“To obtain by salvaging or foraging; round up. To forage about in an effort to acquire something at no cost.” (from The Free Dictionary)
There’s a fine art to repurposing things for the farm. A good homesteader knows how to keep an eye out for good deals that can be used for other things, traded for needed things, or used for animal food. Foraging and scrounging are essential skills, unless you’re Bill Gates on his many “farms.”
The list of things a farmer can scrounge and forage include, but most certainly aren’t limited to:
- food from stores and restaurants
- throw away food from food banks or other sources
- retired electric poles
- steel of all sorts
- building materials
- and so on
- and so forth
Your imagination is the limit.
That’s Mark’s topic for this weekly live show on our YouTube channel and Rumble channel.
