A woman has revealed how she’s preparing for the end of the world by creating a fruitful homestead – but says even her family thinks she’s “crazy”.

Gubba, 23, stockpiles her pantry and has her own dairy animals so that she’s ready for an imminent crisis.

The homesteader believes that she has enough food to feed herself and her family for up to a year.

In a video shared on her Instagram, (@gubbahomestead ), she reveals her quirky lifestyle methods, racking up over 344,000 views and thousands of likes.

But not everyone is on board.

“They [my family] thought I was crazy at first, but now they see I’m ahead of the curve with wars ramping up and other global factors,” Gubba told Need To Know.

“I got real serious when I saw the empty grocery store shelves during the pandemic.”

I preserve food so my family and I can eat when the grocery stores can’t provide it.

“Or when inflation skyrockets and food becomes unaffordable.

“I can food in Mason jars; I freeze-dry food, and I employ other methods of food storage that help me build my food reserves, such as preserving eggs and making my own medicine.

“My dad still thinks I’m crazy.

“But he has homestead parents and lots of family members who know how hard it is to be disconnected from supermarket luxuries.

“But he also knows I do what I believe in and never let others detract me.”

The full-time homesteader, from Washington, US, also keeps a stock of wood to hand in case the “grid drops” and has many animals on her farm to keep her produce ticking over.

She said: “I have multiple [animals] around the homestead.

“My chickens for eggs, my goats for milk and cheese, my bees for honey, and my dogs for when bears and mountain lions come around —and they do.

She said: “I keep my woodpile stocked from nearby forests, and if the power goes out, I have a reliable heating source.

“[Other people] should [prepare] in any setting they find themselves in.

“A subdivision in suburbia or a city apartment.

“When I realised that this lifestyle is possible anywhere, I actually developed a guide specifically to help people homestead from their location, anywhere in the world.”.

In the clip, Gubba can be seen preparing her food storage as she details why it’s important to prepare.

She captioned the post: “[…]Building a food storage is necessary.

“It doesn’t have to be expansive.You don’t need a full pantry.

“It doesn’t have to be overwhelming.

“All you have to do is start.

“If preserving food is still daunting, stock up on canned and boxed items you already use in your kitchen.

“Over time, you can learn to replace those with your own canning and cooking if you wish.

“The most important part of building food storage is just starting.

“Building a food storage can mean incorporating different methods of food preservation.

“You just need to take the time to learn how to […].”

Users have flocked to the comments to share their reactions, with many people questioning Gubba’s lifestyle choice.

“You do you not for me,” another user said.

Someone else added: “The lizard people have stole our earth and are holding us like rats.”

Another user said: “This will be very helpful info for the ex-military people, I’m sure they are already making a list of the house where to stop at.”

However, some users agreed with Gubba’s unusual ways.

“Amen, girl! My mother looked at me sideways for years, “Why are you doing that?! We have stores!” Then 2020 happened…..and she got REAL quiet…” One user commented.

Gubba added: “While everyone else hurries to the store for a gallon of milk, I’m running after my cow or milking my goats.

“But everyone is more dependent on the system now than ever before and if they could just try some of these natural remedies, they’ll quickly find out the big secret.

“I’m very happy now and no one can take that away from me.

“Be your own person, embrace your identity, and don’t worry about what others say.”
