Man Milking A CowFor the past two years, we at MOTHER EARTH NEWS have collected nominations from our readers and fans to name a handful of self-sufficient superstars as our Homesteaders of the Year. We're back at it this year, seeking wiser-living families and individuals who deserve to be honored in our 2014 edition. (You can find past profiles by reading our collection of Star Modern Homesteaders.)

Do you know someone who has embraced the DIY lifestyle by raising nearly all of their own food, building their own home, installing renewable-energy systems, and otherwise blazing a path toward self-reliant living for others to follow? Perhaps you and your family fit this bill! 

Nominate those you know — or your own family — to be one of our 2014 Homesteaders of the Year. Submit at least 500 words explaining why your nominee deserves to win along with at least three photos to Letters@MotherEarthNews.com with the subject line "homesteader of the year." Entries are due by March 15, 2014.

Help us find folks out there inspiring others to do more with less — and love it!
