5+ years ago I stumbled onto Jill’s blog and read it cover to cover like a book. The knowledge she shared empowered me to buy our first homestead and encouraged me along the way. Life circumstances have required us to pause that venture for now, but I still find her content comforting, a safe...Read full review »

I have listened to over 100 of the Old-fashioned on Purpose podcasts. They are very informative and necessary.

This podcast was the breath of fresh air I need. I’ve always felt a little old fashioned. The knowledge that I’m getting from Jill is definitely helping me to get to the life I want for my family. My grandparents didn’t pass down some of the skills but I’ve always wanted to learn and this is...Read full review »

I have wished and dreamed I could have a life like this. I would dream of waking up and going to do morning chores and feeding the horses and whatever livestock we had. I have always wanted that kind of life, we had already decided we are going to buy a farm and raise our kids the way I wanted to...Read full review »

Growing up in a large city on the west coast, we have since relocated to small town in SE Idaho. Living on an acre we have gardens and lots of room to expand our skill set. I’m so glad that I found Jill because we all need to learn how to be more self sufficient and how to honor our ancestors’...Read full review »

I feel so silly saying this, but I listen to these episodes & I get so choked up because it’s like yes! She gets it! She’s been there & through it & this is how I feel! & I’m not crazy after all! As a wife trying not to eagerly countdown to military retirement & raise little...Read full review »

Jeez! Not a podcast for anyone serious about homesteading. There are too many other informative and helpful pods to consider before this one. Don’t need the personal drama queen stuff, not in the real homesteading world. Moving on.....
sossity1975 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/21
I haven’t listened to the Origins season, but I have so appreciated and loved Jill Winger’s info on all things gardening, raising animals, homeschooling, and general self-sufficient living. As my husband and I are journeying toward raising more of our own food, this podcast has been incredibly...Read full review »

I’ve been listening for awhile, have Jill’s book and follow her on Facebook. I love everything about all of it, but especially enjoyed hearing about Jill’s beginnings. She is so inspiring! I now go around saying things like “My friend Jill said this is .....”. It drives my children crazy and they...Read full review »

So many things stick out and make me feel “normal” I love this podcast!

I’m SO glad I found you Jill! Your story is inspiring and I respond to it on a spiritual level. This last year has been difficult in so many ways. I cannot wait for your next season as I am going to garden and can more than ever this summer in WV. Keep on being you. I cannot wait to learn more...Read full review »

I was really hoping this podcast would focus on homesteading and it turned into a nine episode series on her life which I understand some may benefit understanding that we all don’t start in the country but I firmly believe for a whole entire story could’ve been told by episode two.
youtubesmd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/07/21
I have enjoyed this last series on how you got started in business, the ups & downs, and middle time...such great insight and wisdom on realizing dreams and how to get there! Everyone’s story is different but I appreciated all the great principles you shared :)

I love how Jill presents truth to her audience in a most humble and encouraging way. The longer I listen to her podcast the more drawn in I become.
Momof3inMT via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/21
Jill is practical and relatable (yet immensely inspirational) for homestead dreamers with an entrepreneurial spirit!
chillinchilean via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/21
I love this podcast because it is just what I need to hear to encourage me to step out of my comfort zone and do the things I have dreamed of since I was very little. Listening to Jill’s story make me feel like she is talking directly to me. Thanks for all you do.
brockfamilyuk via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/21
I know a lot of people will appreciate the shift in focus this season, but I’m really bummed that Jill shifted from more specific homestead related content to what I would now essentially call a self-help podcast. All the life lessons she’s spelling out in this season are values she’d already...Read full review »

This is a really wonderful and empowering podcast. The new season is not at all what I was expecting, but it was exactly what I needed! I own an organic vegetable/ pasture raised pork farm, and somewhere along the way of running my business, I lost track of the thing that got me into this...Read full review »

If you want to listen to a podcast that is going to make you think and act, look no further. Jill gives great advice in every aspect from homesteading to personal growth. I have learn so much in just the little time I’ve been listening.

Jill is truly an inspiration.

This is more powerful than even you realize. This spoke right to my soul! All adults, especially those struggling with childhood issues and/or lack of direction in adult life, should listen to this!!! I appreciate you opening up as much as you did, but it will help so many people still searching! ❤️

I feel like I’m sitting in Jills living room having a conversation with her about her homestead every time I listen. I have learned so much from her this year and I am gaining the confidence I need to start growing and making my own food. I love it!
Ilydavid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/20
Such wise thoughts about homeschooling. I homeschooled my son and daughter a generation ago. It was the hardest, most exciting, scariest, lowest paid but most rewarding job ever. And as I look back, I can identify a great many rewards: My son was struggling with ADHD, but thrived with a 2:1...Read full review »

I saw you last year at the homesteader of American and heard a lot about you from Justin Rhoads. I really enjoy your content and so glad I found your podcast

I love Jill’s personally and her podcast. I don’t even have a homestead (though I’d love to) and yet I learn so much. My favorite topics have been fermenting, canning, following your passions, and even salt. Thank you! Another homeschool mama

I love listening to Jill’s podcast whenever I get the chance. I love her no fuss lifestyle.

Following my recent move to a small farm, my husband and I have really adopted the “homesteading” mindset and have begun to adapt our life.

Scrappy Hawaiian via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/20
There is some good info here, but the vast majority of her food information comes from a very privileged place and some of it goes against scientific advice. For example, in her episode about how to start homesteading, she tells her listeners to start purchasing organic foods. Organic foods have...Read full review »
