AN ALL-NEW SEASON OF "HOMESTEAD RESCUE" PREMIERES ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL TUESDAY FEB. 28 AT 8PM ET/PT
Homesteading is a choice by some to create a more self-sufficient life. A life that leans towards sustainability, subsistence agriculture, and learning the traditional skills necessary to be less reliant on modern technology and conveniences. Many homesteaders also look to lessen their impact on the environment as they search for a more meaningful life during times of uncertainty. The Raney family continue their mission to save families and their beloved homesteads from the brink of failure as they take on all-new builds and life changing rescues while sharing lessons in homesteading in an all-new season of "Homestead Rescue" which premieres Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 8PM ET/PT on Discovery.
In the season premiere, Marty, the patriarch of the family and author of "Homestead Survival: An Insider's Guide to Your Great Escape" (TarcherPerigee September 2022), attempts to help a family in Wyoming resurrect an inherited homestead with a tragic legacy, while unraveling the mystery of an unfinished well. In one of their most creative builds yet, Misty combines a one-of-a-kind aquaponic greenhouse and with a new duck sanctuary built by Matt, for an inventive "duckaponics" system.
Other stories this season include rescuing millennial homesteaders in Idaho from a crumbling mountainside threatening to crush their cabin; responding to a family unprepared for the looming brutal winter on 300 acres in Alaska's remote Delta Junction; traveling to rural Virginia where new homesteaders struggle to survive on their 11 acres with a failing garden, inadequate water catchment and no shelter, aside from an old school bus they currently call home; and traveling to Washington State where, for the first time ever, the Raney family arrives too late to save a homestead's crumbling cabin ahead of the fast-approaching winter.
