Hazardous Liberty is derived from a 1765 John Adams quote – “Liberty must at all hazards be supported.” Adams was speaking both about the necessity to defend liberty, even in hazardous situations, but also to the fact that liberty itself is a risky venture.
For us, taking the risk to become homesteaders was about many things – good stewardship, good health, life-skills, sustainability, etc. – but most importantly, it is about our own personal liberty. Our ability to survive and thrive, regardless of what is happening in the world, and to be able to build (or rebuild if necessary) a community of like-minded people to share in God’s glorious bounty of creation.
With the myriad of forces impacting food production these days (among other areas of daily life) it is more important that ever to do all we can to be as free from those forces as possible. At our homestead we embrace Hazardous Liberty as a way of life, meaning that there will be just as much failure (if not more) as there are successes. But in the end and through it all – ups and downs, successes and setbacks, joyous laughter or bitter tears – we shall be free!
