Message From Our Founder

Welcome to the Ladies Homestead Gathering!
I must admit, every time I type in the address for our website, my heart smiles…
A very BIG smile!

I still can’t believe that only a few short years ago, I posted on our Lazy B Farm Facebook page an invitation to all women who were interested in homesteading. And in January 2011, over 20 women gathered at my farmhouse.

There was an instant connection; an electricity filled the room as we began to share our dreams and longings for a sustainable life.  We met again the next month, and the next... New faces appeared, and our knowledge expanded, our community grew, and our friendships deepened.

The loneliness that I felt prior to meeting these women vanished. I was now in the company of many interesting, like-minded women and my desire for community with other women was fulfilled!

If what I have shared with you here tugs at your heart, then come along and join us. We are all on a journey, a homesteading journey, and how much more pleasant that journey is when surrounded by supportive, “atta girl” friends, who also walk alongside us. Come on, grab a hand and let’s go!

Feel free to wander through our website and please let us know if we can help answer any questions.

Our organization is fueled by the energy and enthusiasm of our all-volunteer board. Click here to meet the other wonderful ladies that make everything we do possible!

Need to know if there’s a Ladies Homestead Gathering near you? This page should answer that question.

Want to start a Ladies Homestead Gathering in your own community? Please pop over to this page.

A modern homesteader is one who has an attitude and philosophy of self-sufficiency and is not confined, nor defined, by a piece of land, area, or experience. 

If that sounds like you, then you’ve found the right community!

We welcome you with a big basket of knowledge, community, and friendship,

Cyndi Ball
National Ladies Homestead Gathering Founder and President

Our Mission

The National Ladies Homestead Gathering exists to provide a welcoming environment, where women can share new ideas, celebrate victories, address challenges and cultivate community with like-minded women. All women are welcome who have a dream, calling or desire to be more self-sufficient. Single or married, in the planning phase or a veteran homesteader – every woman has something to contribute or gain from coming together.
