The R.H. Factor: Radical Homemakers on Real Homesteads

The R.H. Factor: Radical Homemakers on Real Homesteads. “The foot of the owner manureth the land.” That’s an old English saying, and it does not refer to the possibility that your boots may be less than clean. Instead, it means that active involvement makes the homestead more productive. A farm tended with careful management and diligent effort will tend to be more successful than one managed minimally or only “on paper.” It has been known for over a century that smaller farm operations tend to be more productive on an acre-by-acre basis than huge monocultures. There’s no substitute for “boots on the ground.” Modern trends have promoted the substitution of capital (money and materials) for labor, and even for management. The results have been more waste, more risk, and more dependency upon an increasingly globalized economy.
