The Mitzels are a fount of knowledge. We, too, have had a consult and greatly benefitted from the information they were able to impart. We highly recommend their services.

Sean and Monica came out and consulted on my acreage. What I got was a far more thorough knowledge of my property and its capabilities along with a step-by-step guide to take me from where I was at to where we want to be. Everything from the pH of my soil to the type of trees and drainage paths….SO worth it!!
Sean and Monica Mitzel consulted for us last fall when we bought our property and I can say that it helped us immensely! They came and checked out our property, took pictures, talked to us about our goals and expectations as well as other things. After a few days, we did a phone consultation alongside a power point presentation on what was recommended. We have followed through with as much as we have been able to so far and it has been very useful information. I HIGHLY recommend their services!

“I attended the “Introduction to Homesteading” Workshop offered by The Prepared Homestead and received much more information and knowledge than I could have ever imagined. In short, I am extremely thankful that I attended the workshop, and HIGHLY recommend this and other workshops to ANYONE who is thinking about or wants to receive knowledge in an understandable and concise format on Homesteading, Permaculture, livestock, Food Forests, and Food Preservation. The plethora of information will provide you with tools and motivation to actually get started. I believe, like me, you will leave inspired, motivated and confident that you can enact your plans into real life.
As far as the learning environment, it was extremely pleasant, including a warm and friendly atmosphere for learning and an unbelievable gourmet meal from their homestead food products. My appreciation to Sean and his amazing family for sharing their knowledge and love of living life to the fullest with Homesteading.”

“As I approach my 1st year anniversary homesteading and am witnessing daily not only the fruits of my labor but a fulfillment of the intelligent analysis and planning report you prepared at the onset of this endeavor. I would be remiss not to acknowledge the tremendous value, insight, focus and practical know-how you brought to bear on my property through your consulting services.
From your ( and Monica’s) informative, honest, entertaining and “real” podcasts to the no-nonsense, exceedingly practical, friendly homestead workshops, you and your family are truly a “one-stop” shop for all things homesteading. You folks clearly walk the talk as evidenced by your beautifully functional homestead! Your true to form and functional homesteading lifestyle combined with your integrity, work ethic, business expertise and superb analytical skills made the decision to hire you one of the wisest things I’ve done this far! Thank you very much!”

“You did a fabulous job on the Intro to Canning Workshop. Now I am ready to start canning. Thank you for the hands-on, which really makes a great impact for confidence, and the concise instructions in the class and to take home. I believe we will all be successful at canning, which will be a great addition to the food, including storage, for our families; not to mention great gifts.
By the way, thank you so much for the gifts of some of your beautifully canned items. Getting these allows us to show others a “look at what we learned!”
