Join this family as they share the lost art of meat canning. In this video you will learn how to process meat with an Amish community and can it in many very handy ways. Also learn how to can potatoes, carrots, and tomatoes. You will learn how to make a sprouted grain, no yeast, no sugar bread and how to make homemade noodles. The children have fun helping mom in the kitchen making many delightful meals with the canned goods.
"Hi Erin...Chris here. The kids have watched your new dvd twice already! I finally just got the chance to sit down with them and watch it...WOW!! You guys are incredible! You get out there and do it all!
I'm so glad to have found your dvds and now this post...it's been such an encouragement, and when the time does come for us to move, we will be prepared to be self-sufficient!...thanks to you and your amazing talents! Thank you for sharing your family with all of us on here and on your dvds...keep up the awesome work!
Our family is so glad to have purchased the Homesteading for Beginners Volume III DVD...what an encouragement it has been! The Harrison's show how pork and beef is butchered, processed, canned and then prepared in meals! Step by step instructions are given that even the kids could follow!! Wonderful, nutritious recipes are included that inspire you to take the time to learn about the foods we eat! We love watching this DVD and are so thankful to the Harrison's for sharing their wisdom and skills with us...we look forward to more DVDs! The Kaiser Family, Davie FL"
I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to make these DVDs and teach others how to homestead. I especially appreciate seeing your family doing everything together. I have 6 children, ages 8 and under, and my husband and I have the same desire to teach and learn alongside our children how to be self-sufficient and raise up godly children while serving the Lord. We just weren’t sure where to start. We’re trying to come up with a home business to allow my husband to come home and work. Your DVDs have been an answer to our prayers! Please continue to make them…We watched Volume I last night and my children were glued…and I felt like I was watching my dreams come to life. We’ve already tried our hand at chickens (for meat and eggs), gardening, homemade bread and canning but I have a long way to go! We are looking forward to learning all the skills you’ve taught us!
Thank you so much,
"I have already watched the first two 'Homesteading for Beginners' DVDs - and really enjoyed them. Your children are enchanting, and watching them pitch in and have fun with all the activities brought back fond memories of my own childhood and long, hot summers and deep, cold winters spent on my Grandfather's farm. I'm so glad you invested the time and effort to make these inspiring productions - and I do look forward to seeing whatever you do next!
With thanks and my very best regards,

"Today, I finished watching Volume 3 of the homesteading for Beginners DVD series. This particular DVD covers cooking with long term storage foods, home canned meats, vegetables, and self-raised dairy products, in great detail. Erin Harrison is very down to earth, warm and friendly as she demonstrates, with easy-to-follow steps, how to cook her all-natural recipes. As you watch the video you feel as though your right in the kitchen with Erin and her five children. The only sad part is that we can't partake in the tasting of all of those wonderful foods they are making. Erin's videos make me want to get outside and get my gardens in and get myself into the kitchen to do more cooking and canning. I highly recommend these videos! They are wonderful to watch with your children. You and your children will learn so much from Erin and her family. You'll want to watch these videos over and over."

"The homesteading DVD's arrived, as did a ton of snow. We've had a great time watching them, and it's just so delightful to see the personality of the mom come out as the film progresses. She's great! She's the neighbor you always wished you had. God bless! "
"Dear Harrison Family,
Just recently my family and I came across and purchased your Homesteading DVD's volume 1 &2. I just wanted to let you know how much we have all enjoyed them. We really didn't know what to expect when we bought them but they are wonderful! We love them! The thing that I like most about your videos is that it's real people living real lives and sharing what they know. We have often thought of moving to the country and living that kind of life but we never did because we weren't sure we could do it or where to begin. Your videos all make it seem possible now. We love how you clearly explain everything and find the videos to be both encouraging and inspirational. Not only do your videos give great advice on farming, gardening, taking care of the animals and so much more but it's full of recipes and nutritious ways to keep our families healthy. ( I have even used them in our homeschooling.) I was also surprised and pleased to see that each video came with a little booklet containing excerpts from the videos with recipes, canning tips, gardening tips, herbs, nutritional info and more. All available at my fingertips whenever I need them. Wonderful! We have even tried some of the recipes and have enjoyed them very much. Keep up the great work! We are eager to learn more and look forward to more videos. God bless you in your endeavors."
