Rural Jobs: Make a Living in Your Rural Community or from a Homestead Business

It’s possible to have a successful homestead business or patchwork of rural jobs far from the daily grind of urban and suburban offices. Backwoods breadwinners can make a living working for a niche rural business, or by starting a community-supported agriculture program or cottage food enterprise from home.
